Firm Congratulates Joe Matthews for Becoming IATL President

Colson Hicks Eidson is proud to announce that our own Joseph M. Matthews is going to be president of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers (IATL).

The IATL is a collection of elite trial lawyers. Membership is limited and includes prosecution and defense lawyers who practice criminal litigation as well as plaintiffs’ and defense attorneys who practice civil litigation.

The IATL includes lawyers from over 30 countries. Trial lawyers are invited to become fellows only after a very thorough vetting process. Membership is limited to 500 active trial lawyers under the age of 70.

Before becoming president, Joe held other positions within the IATL, including serving as vice president of the board of directors and as dean. The IATL’s dean, who is nominated and elected annually, has the unique honor of delivering an address on the subject of his or her choosing relevant to enhancing the rule of law and trial advocacy at the IATL’s annual meeting.

Joe delivered his dean’s address, “Trial Advocacy in the 21st Century Global Village” in 2013, which is available on the IATL website.
