Above all, I believe this honor recognizes the hard work and effort that we invest in providing quality legal representation and professional service to our clients.
Columbia, S.C. (Vocus/PRWEB) April 07, 2011
A Columbia personal injury attorney who has dedicated his career to helping seriously injured people and the families of those killed as the result of others’ negligence has been certified as a life member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
The organization announced Bert Louthian’s selection last week, making him the newest member of an elite group of trial attorneys who have secured million and multi-million dollar verdicts, awards and settlements for their clients.
“It is quite an honor to be chosen for life membership to this prestigious organization,” said Louthian, a personal injury attorney with the Columbia-based Louthian Law Firm, P.A., who has helped his firm to recover millions of dollars through the years for South Carolinians hurt by vehicle crashes, workplace accidents, medical errors and defective products.
“Above all, I believe this honor recognizes the hard work and effort that we invest in providing quality legal representation and professional service to our clients,” Louthian said.
The Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum organization was established in 1993 and is comprised of approximately 4,000 attorneys throughout the country, representing less than 1 percent of all U.S. lawyers.
According to a Forum statement, membership “acknowledges excellence in advocacy and provides members with a national network of experienced colleagues for professional referral and information exchange in major cases.”
To be a member, an attorney must have served as lead counsel in at least one case in which a client has received a $1 million verdict, award or settlement or, for membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, at least one recovery of $2 million or more.
“Our firm has always followed the philosophy that we work hard to negotiate a fair and full settlement for our clients, but we always prepare each case as if it is going to trial,” Louthian said. “That approach has helped us to consistently deliver successful results for our clients.”
Louthian is a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law who has been practicing in South Carolina since 1983. He is licensed to practice in all of South Carolina’s state and federal courts as well as the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and U.S. Supreme Court.
