Willcox Savage is very pleased to announce that partner Bruce Bishop has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.  The special induction ceremony at which Bruce Bishop became a Fellow took place before an audience of over 800 during the 2019 Annual Meeting of the College in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Bruce graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1976, and since that time he has defended major national and international companies in significant asbestos, transportation, and environmental matters. He has extensive trial experience in state and federal courts throughout the United States. In the course of representing numerous clients Bruce has developed considerable experience in the coordination of mass tort litigation.  He also has a national reputation in the medical and state-of-the-art issues associated with toxic tort litigation. 

Founded in 1950, the American College of Trial Lawyers 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 of diverse backgrounds, 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 5,800 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 maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
