Michigan Auto Law trial attorney Robert Raitt has been admitted as a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates

Considered one of the best auto accident attorneys in Michigan, Bobby is admitted to ABOTA based upon his jury trials and verdicts


I’m proud to announce that my law partner, trial lawyer Robert M. Raitt, was recently selected as a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).

ABOTA is a national association of very experienced trial lawyers and judges dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. First and foremost, ABOTA works to uphold the jury system by educating the American public about the history and value of the right to trial by jury. ABOTA has a number of educational programs for lawyers, teachers and students to preserve the constitutional vision of equal justice for all Americans and to preserve our civil justice system for future generations.

ABOTA members are said to be a “Who’s who of trial lawyers nationwide.” Lawyers cannot even become members of ABOTA until they can prove they have had at least 20 trials. Indeed, it’s also said that “[j]udges, legislators and community leaders believe that ABOTA encompasses what is ‘best’ in the legal profession …”

Having the distinction of being an ABOTA member is a nice honor. But as I’ve written on these pages before, these legal honors and awards for trial verdicts and injury settlements are nice, but the true testament is how we as lawyers treat our clients. If we treat our clients with care, respect, and compassion, the awards and legal honors will follow. I’ve said at many legal seminars that the way for lawyers to get big settlements and verdicts starts from communication and caring.

I’m also a member of ABOTA, and I look forward to working with Bobby to better serve the Michigan legal community and to further embrace the educational opportunities that this new role will provide.

Here is more information about Bobby’s other legal leadership positions and honors and legal awards.
