The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) is a national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the constitutional right to civil jury trial. Parsons, Lee & Juliano is one of the top Alabama firms in percentage of members admitted to ABOTA. Jay Juliano and Mark Lee were admitted to ABOTA over 30 years ago, eight years into their practice. At that time admission to ABOTA required the trial of at least 50 jury trials as lead counsel. Marda Sydnor, David Lee and Deborah Ann Wakefield have also been admitted to ABOTA. With five partners admitted to ABOTA, our boutique litigation firm ranks among the highest Alabama firms in percentage of members honored with admission to ABOTA.
