The Network of Trial Law Firms, an association of 20 leading U.S. trial law firms, is pleased to announce that Felice C. Wagner, Esq., has joined the association as Executive Director and General Counsel. Wagner succeeds founder Ellis Mirsky who has served as General Counsel and Executive Director since 1993.  While Mirsky has retired from his day-to-day duties, he will continue to be an important advisor to the Network as Executive Director, Emeritus.

Wagner joins The Network with more than 20 years of experience in the legal industry. A former practicing attorney, she has leveraged her understanding of the field into a career as a trainer and consultant, including working with thousands of attorneys from the world’s top law firms to understand client preferences and how to meet clients’ needs.

“We are very excited to have Felice on board,” said Lee Hollis, 2016 chair of the association, and partner with Alabama member-firm Lightfoot Franklin & White. “She is going to help take the Network to the next level, using her vast experience to build upon our already excellent track record.”

Prior to joining The Network, Wagner founded a premier lawyer training and consulting firm, served in senior management at an AmLaw 100 law firm, and has been a leader in the law firm community.

“Felice is a leading professional in the legal field, and is highly sought after, making her an outstanding addition to The Network team,” said Jessalyn Zeigler, the 2017 Chair-elect and partner with Tennessee’s Bass Berry & Sims. “We strive to provide our clients with cutting-edge continuing legal education and an environment of collegial networking opportunities. We are confident Felice will help us achieve these goals.”

Wagner is a Hall of Fame member of the Legal Marketing Association and a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management. She earned her J.D., cum laude, from the Georgetown University Law Center and her B.A. in economics, magna cum laude, from the University of South Florida.
