Farrell gains entry into exclusive groups of top U.S. trial lawyers
Online PR News – 09-June-2012 – MIAMI, Florida – MIAMI, Fla. - Wesley Farrell, founding partner of Farrell & Patel, Attorneys at Law, one of the leading firms representing plaintiffs in the BP Oil Spill Settlement, has been certified as a life member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum - two of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States.
Founded in 1993, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts, awards and settlements. There are approximately 3,000 members located throughout the country, representing less than 1 percent of U.S. lawyers. To qualify, members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum must have acted as principal counsel in at least one case in which a verdict, award or settlement in the amount of one million dollars or more was obtained. Two million dollars or more must have been obtained for membership within the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Membership acknowledges excellence in advocacy, and it provides members with a national network of experienced colleagues for professional referral and information exchange in major cases.
With offices in Miami, Houston, Tampa and New Orleans, Mr. Farrell’s firm currently represents over 2,500 clients whose businesses have been adversely affected by the Deepwater Horizon explosion of April 2010. Farrell, whose focus includes class action and mass tort litigation, has already played a significant role in helping his clients recover from lost business sustained as a result of the BP Oil Spill.
“I am very honored to be accepted into both of these Forums, as this recognition represents the hard work and commitment to service that I share with our associates at Farrell & Patel,” he said.
