Attorney Jason Itkin has achieved some truly great things in his relatively young career, both for his clients and for the field of law as a whole. He has facilitated life-changing and record-breaking verdicts and settlements for injured victims, which help improve the safety conditions of the U.S. as a whole. Over 100 of his settlements have settled for $1 million or more. However, few accolades demonstrate Mr. Itkin’s skill and dedication as a trial lawyer like his membership in The Inner Circle of Advocates.
The History of the Inner Circle
Becoming a member of The Inner Circle of Advocates is an accomplishment at any age, but Jason Itkin has managed to meet their rigorous standards before the age of 40. Attorney Itkin has achieved what few lawyers accomplish in their entire lives, consistently winning million-dollar verdicts for his clients.
The Inner Circle of Advocates is an organization founded in 1972 by a Tucson trial attorney named Richard Grand. His purpose was to bring together the 50 best plaintiff trial lawyers in the United States, allowing them to trade skills and wisdom and improve the quality of trial law as a whole. The organization is truly exclusive, with invitation-only membership. As of today, membership represents the 100 best trial lawyers in the nation.
The standards for The Inner Circle are as follows:
- The most recent large verdict must be less than 5 years old
- Must have either 3 verdicts in excess of $1 million or 1 verdict in excess of $10 million
- Member must have completed a significant amount of trial cases, usually more than 50
What Membership Symbolizes
More than another award, Inner Circle membership is a marker of devotion to the good of the United States. The vision of the founder of The Inner Circle of Advocates was to improve the lives of everyday Americans through every verdict won on behalf of injury victims. Much like this organization, Arnold & Itkin is also devoted to improving the lives and safety of our clients through our work. Every large verdict is a message to insurance companies and large corporations that people’s lives are valuable, and they will be held accountable.
