Established in 1993, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (which includes the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and The Top Trial Lawyers in America) is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Its members have won million, multi-million, and billion-dollar cases. With attorney John Padilla being part of the “Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and The Top Trial Lawyers in America, he is among the top percentage of trial attorneys in the nation!
The organization was created by a California trial lawyer to serve two essential purposes. First, to recognize the skills, experience, and accomplishments of trial lawyers who had won large and complex cases. Second, to provide a national network of experienced colleagues who handle such cases, to facilitate information exchange, local assistance, and case referrals. The organization was created and membership invitations were sent to a number of trial lawyers throughout the country who had won million and multi-million dollar cases. Membership invitations are now sent only to attorneys who objectively appear to be qualified, including those whose names have been proposed from case reports and nominations of current members. Other attorneys who are qualified may apply for membership. Membership requires completion, review, and approval of a detailed membership application.
At the request of members, the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum was organized in 2007.
