The Academy of Trial Lawyers began in 1959 as an organization to promote the highest standards of integrity, civility, and competence in the legal profession, to cherish the camaraderie among its members and to foster a close working relationship with the judiciary in matters of judicial administration, an objective and mission that it strongly adheres to and pursues today.  We are a group of lawyers who are dedicated to preserving the jury system and the independence of the judiciary.  Active Membership is limited by the Academy Bylaws to Allegheny County lawyers who are actively engaged in civil trial practice from both the plaintiff's and defendant's side of counsel table in either state and/or federal courts.  Members of the Academy represent the most exceptional civil trial lawyers in Allegheny County.  Please use our website to find out more about the Academy, its members, its mission and its activities.
