Matthew McNicholas Inducted Into the International Academy of Trial Lawyers

Partner Matthew McNicholas has been inducted as a Fellow into the International Academy of Trial Lawyers (IATL), recognized as the most prestigious organization of trial lawyers in the world. McNicholas & McNicholas is the only family with three simultaneous members in IATL as well as the invitation-only organizations American Board of Trial Advocates and American College of Trial Lawyers.

Fellowship in IATL is by invitation only and limited to 500 active trial lawyers from the United States, and approximately 150 Fellows from nearly 40 countries across the globe. Trial lawyers become Fellows only after an extremely rigorous vetting process, which includes both peer and judicial review. IATL seeks out Fellows who have achieved a career of excellence as shown by their skills in trial, and as demonstrated by their integrity and professionalism. Members are also heavily involved in pro bono efforts and generously contribute time and resources to their local communities.

As one of the leading trial lawyers in California, Matthew represents victims in a range of areas, including catastrophic injury, wrongful death, employment law, product liability, sexual assault and other consumer-oriented matters, such as civil rights and aviation disasters. He also has an emphasis in representing police officers, firefighters and other first responders in discrimination, retaliation and whistleblower-employment actions against their departments. Matthew and his firm has recovered more than $2 billion in results for clients, and more than $150 million in employment law results.
