Angelo M. Patacca, Jr.The Terrell Hogan law firm takes great pride in announcing that partner Angelo Patacca has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America. Mr. Patacca’s induction ceremony to become a Fellow took place during the College’s 2016 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship, and membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province.

The American College takes great care in deciding the lawyers to invite into its membership.  They did that with Angelo.  No better choice could have been made.  Angelo is a consummate professional, an innovator and communicator; he puts his all into representing his clients.  He focuses on what must be understood by juries, and then gets it across, and in the right way.  Judges and opposing counsel know this.  Congratulations to Angelo Patacca, and to the American College.
