William H. Pugh, V Admitted to the American College of Trial Lawyers

                                      

Irvine, CA - William H. Pugh, V, Esq. has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.

The induction ceremony at which William H. Pugh, V, Esq. became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of approximately 900 persons during the recent 2013 Annual Meeting of the College in San Francisco, California.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada.  Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers 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.  Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province.  There are currently approximately 5,789 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows.  The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession.  Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice.  They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute persons accused of crime and those who defend them.  The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.

William H. Pugh, V is Managing Partner in the firm of Kane, Pugh, Knoell, Troy & Kramer LLP with offices in Norristown, PA and Philadelphia, PA and has been practicing for twenty-seven (27) years.  The newly inducted Fellow is an alumnus of Villanova School of Law.  Mr. Pugh, an alumnus of the University of Richmond and Villanova University School of Law, is also a Past President of the Montgomery County Trial Lawyers Association and the Montgomery Bar Association.  Mr. Pugh is currently Vice President of the 27,000 member Pennsylvania Bar Association.
