Ron Levine Admitted to American College of Trial Lawyers
Philadelphia, PA – March 8, 2018 – Post & Schell Principal Ronald H. Levine has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America. The induction ceremony took place on March 2, 2018, during the 2018 Spring Meeting of the College in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting had a total attendance of 850.
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.
Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
Mr. Levine is the Chair of the Firm’s Internal Investigations & White Collar Defense Practice Group. He counsels and defends corporations, as well as directors, executives, professionals and others, confronting potential allegations of fraud or other misconduct at all stages of the government enforcement cycle: pre-enforcement internal investigations and compliance/governance counseling; responding to government inquiries, audits, subpoenas, search warrants and investigations; and trials and appeals, be they administrative, civil, or criminal.
In addition to being a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, Mr. Levine is the appointed Chair of the Practitioners Advisory Group (PAG) of the United States Sentencing Commission, and in 2016, he was honored by the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (PACDL) with the Alan Jay Josel Advocacy Award for his advocacy related to the U.S. Supreme Court case, United States v. Elonis (the “Facebook threats” case).
