Doyle LLP is pleased to announce that founding partner Mike Doyle has been appointed to the Board of Trustees for the American Association for Justice (AAJ) National College of Advocacy. The National College of Advocacy Board manages all the educational programs and skills colleges of AAJ, the premier national organization for trial lawyers.
As a trial lawyer committed to excellence in trial advocacy, this role allows Mike Doyle to assist in promoting a fair and effective justice system and to work to ensure that any person injured by the misconduct of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests. Mike has consistently worked to share his knowledge and expertise with his fellow trial lawyers, and this appointment will allow him to help shape the development of AAJ’s programs.
AAJ is the only nationally accredited Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider tailored to plaintiff trial attorneys, and its educational programming is widely recognized as among the best available to lawyers looking to build their critical trial skills.
In November of 2012, Mike tried a landmark case against KRB, the largest U.S. military contractor, on behalf of twelve U.S. soldiers exposed to toxic hexavalent chromium at a KBR company worksite in Iraq, in 2003. KBR was ordered to pay $85 million in non-economic and punitive damages. Mike Doyle was also recognized for achieving the largest Texas maritime verdict in 2013. This recognition followed a unanimous verdict awarding $9,677,068 against Diamond Offshore Services on behalf of a rig mechanic seriously injured on Diamond’s drilling rig offshore Egypt.
With great pleasure we congratulate Mike Doyle on his appointment to the National College of Advocacy Board of Trustees within the AAJ. This association of trial lawyers is dynamic community of practitioners that continue to enhance and protect the civil justice system, a mission embodied in the life of every dedicated trial lawyer.
