The Trial Lawyers Summit is an annual gathering of the most outstanding civil plaintiff and criminal defense attorneys in America. It was created by The National Trial Lawyers to bring together its members to share ideas and to learn new ways of improving their skills in the courtroom and better ways of managing and marketing their law firms. It was first held in 2012 in South Beach, Florida and has grown in attendance and stature with each successive event. Summit attendees can earn CLE credits while listening to and interacting with the most accomplished and respected attorneys in the nation, such as Michael Burg, Frank Branson, Mark Lanier, Tom Girardi, Christian Searcy, Mike Papantonio, Gloria Allred, Lisa Blue, Mark O’Mara, Howard Nations, Mark Geragos, Hezekiah Sistrunk, Doug Beam, John Romano, and many more. While the days are filled with learning and networking opportunities, the evenings feature several parties and outstanding entertainment. Kenny Rogers, Pat Benetar and Ghaleb are just a few of the entertainers who have performed. The Summit also hosts The Trial Lawyer magazine’s annual awards luncheon, which honors the best and finest attorneys for their extraordinary achievements. Speakers for the awards luncheon have included Martin Luther King III, Fernando Chavez, Alan Dershowitz, Jeffrey Toobin, and Terry Bradshaw. We hope you’ll make plans now to attend the 2018 Trial Lawyers Summit and see for yourself what a valuable experience it is.
