Attorney John Houlihan Jr., the Managing Partner at the Hartford law firm of RisCassi & Davis, has just been named a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.
Fellowship is by invitation only, and trial lawyers are invited to become Fellows only after an extremely careful vetting process. Fellowship is limited to 500 U.S. trial attorneys under the age of 70. Only trial attorneys with “outstanding skills, extensive experience, unimpeachable personal and professional character, integrity and honesty” are considered for Fellowship by the International Academy.
“It is a great honor to be recognized for my work and named a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers,” said Mr. Houlihan.
Attorney Houlihan is also certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, a member of the Connecticut Academy of Certified Trial Lawyers, a member of the Hartford County Bar Association, the Connecticut Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, and the American Board of Trial Advocates. In 2007, the Connecticut Bar Foundation also honored him by naming him a James W. Cooper Fellow. Mr. Houlihan is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Connecticut School of Law teaching trial advocacy.
Attorney Houlihan received his law degree from St. John’s University School of Law.
