The ACTL Welcomes Robert Wagner

At Miller and Wagner we strive to offer our clients the best representation in the Medical Malpractice field, not just in the State of Oregon, but across the nation. It is with great honor that Bob Wagner has been invited to The American College of Trial Lawyers. Dave Miller was inducted into the fellowship in 2004.

What is the American College of Trial Lawyers?

The American College of Trial Lawyers is an invitation-only fellowship of exceptional trial lawyers from diverse backgrounds in the United States and Canada.  

The College supports the independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings.

In order to be considered for membership, The College investigates each nominee thoroughly and selects only those who have demonstrated the highest standards of trial advocacy, ethical conduct, integrity, professionalism, and collegiality.  

The purpose of the College of Trial Lawyers is to maintain, as well as improve, these standards through education and public statements on important legal issues relating to its mission.  

Fellowship In The College

Although there are currently more than 5,800 Fellows across the U.S. and Canada, membership can never be more than one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. 

Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in College from all branches of trial practice. They are selected from among advocates who represent plaintiffs or defendants in civil proceedings of all types, as well as prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers. 

The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the administration of justice.

Membership Criteria

Membership is limited to only those trial lawyers who are unquestionably and eminently qualified, in addition to being regarded as the best in their state or province. 

Qualifications must include high ethical and moral standards, as well as excellent character. Consideration for Fellowship also requires lawyers must be actively engaged in trial work as their principal activity for a minimum of 15 years. 

Geographic distribution is not a deciding factor in acceptance to the College: Fellows are not arbitrarily concentrated in metropolitan areas, distributed in rural areas, or denied to any area.  

Additionally, no qualified person shall be excluded from consideration or denied Fellowship due to race, sex, religion, or national origin.

Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Medical malpractice cases can be incredibly complicated, as they deal with the health care system on almost every level. There are injured patients and their loved ones, insurance companies, medical records, and expert witnesses—and each stakeholder has an important role to play. 

A medical malpractice attorney must manage all of the moving parts in order to make their case on behalf of the injured party. Though many attorneys technically have the ability to carry out this process effectively, there are very few who do it masterfully. To learn more about their practice, visit About the Firm.
