Fellows of the Academy are engaged in civil practice on both plaintiff and defense side, as well as in the trial of criminal cases. The Academy invites only lawyers who have attained the highest level of advocacy. An extensive and thorough nomination and screening process identifies the most distinguished members of the trial bar by means of both peer and judicial review. The standards for admission are high based on the exclusive nature of the limited membership. Mr. Peters has been evaluated by his colleagues and the judges in the many jurisdictions in which he has handled cases and has been highly recommended by them as possessing outstanding skill and extensive experience as a trial lawyer.
