Snell & Wilmer Attorney Douglas Seitz Admitted to American College of Trial Lawyers
PHOENIX- (November 13, 2002)-Snell & Wilmer is proud to announce that Douglas Seitz has been admitted as a Fellow to the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premiere legal associations in America. He joins Snell & Wilmer attorneys John J. Bouma, Warren Platt and Alan Sullivan in that elite group.
Seitz, who has been with Snell & Wilmer since 1975, is a partner and practice group leader with the products liability group in the firm's Phoenix office. His practice is concentrated almost exclusively in civil litigation, focusing on defense of product liability and medical malpractice cases. He has tried cases in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, New York, Texas, and Washington. His extensive defense experience, in part, earned him the fellowship with the College, where he is among only 5,200 members in the United States and Canada.
Seitz was inducted into the College at the organization's annual meeting in New York City. Founded in 1950, the College of Trial Lawyers is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only, and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. A minimum of fifteen years trial experience is required before an attorney will be considered for fellowship. Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province.
