Jim Gibson, Partner at Allen & Gooch, now has the distinction of being inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers. The College is composed of the best trial attorneys from the United States and Canada, and fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only, after careful investigation, to those 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. The American College of Trial Lawyers limits its membership to no more than 1% of the total membership of each State’s practicing attorneys.
This honor began with a nomination by members of the College who recognized Jim’s extensive experience in trial and appellate work. After Jim’s nomination, our firm provided the College with voluminous data on Jim’s legal career. During this process I learned that Jim has tried over 60 jury trials to verdict, over 200 bench trials and exception hearings, and he has over 90 reported cases in the Federal and State systems. The investigation performed by the American College of Trial Lawyers not only confirmed Jim’s trial experience, it also included interviews of many Federal and State Court Judges throughout Louisiana before whom Jim has tried cases over the years.
Of the more than 19,000 attorneys currently licensed in Louisiana, just over 100 are members of the American College of Trial Lawyers.
Jim has vast trial and appellate experience and already enjoys an excellent reputation in the Louisiana legal community. He is an AV rated attorney by Martindale Hubbell and has been designated as a Super Lawyer in Louisiana for years.
