GREENVILLE, S.C. (Oct. 3, 2018) – Smith Moore Leatherwood is pleased to announce that Kurt M. Rozelsky has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America. Rozelsky was inducted during the 2018 Annual Meeting of the College in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Rozelsky is a partner with Smith Moore Leatherwood based in the firm’s Greenville office. He focuses his practice on commercial litigation, product liability claims, transportation, professional liability, and class actions.
Smith Moore Leatherwood recently announced a merger with Fox Rothschild, effective Nov. 1, 2018. Rozelsky joins three Fellows from Smith Moore Leatherwood and three Fellows from Fox Rothschild in the College.
“This is an exciting and well-deserved accomplishment for Kurt,” said Julie Theall Earp, managing partner of Smith Moore Leatherwood. “Kurt joins six other American College of Trial Lawyers Fellows in total from Smith Moore Leatherwood and Fox Rothschild. These distinguished litigators should be applauded for their accomplishments.”
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 15 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.
