DON DEVRIES (GOODELL, DEVRIES) INDUCTED INTO IATL
On April 8, 2006, Donald L. DeVries, Jr. of the Network's Maryland Member Firm, Goodell, DeVries, Leech & Dann, was inducted into the International Academy of Trial Lawyers (IATL). Membership in the Academy is limited to 500 attorneys in the United States. Outstanding skills and extensive experience as a trial lawyer, unimpeachable personal and professional character, and integrity and honesty, are a few of the necessary qualities of every nominee. Don was evaluated by his colleagues and the judges in his jurisdiction and was highly recommended by them.
IATL's purpose is to develop jurisprudential issues, promote reforms in the law, facilitate the administration of justice, and elevate standards of integrity, honor, and courtesy in the legal profession. "We are very pleased, but not surprised, that the International Academy of Trial Lawyers has recognized Don as a top practitioner among national trial lawyers," said Linda Woolf, Managing Partner at Goodell, DeVries, Leech & Dann, LLP in Baltimore.
Mr. DeVries is a founding partner of Goodell, DeVries, Leech & Dann, LLP.
