Our firm would like to recognize our founding attorney, Robert F. Goings, for serving as the 2020 President of the South Carolina Chapter of ABOTA. When Robert was first accepted into ABOTA, he was the youngest attorney in South Carolina to be a member of this distinguished legal organization. Last week, he concluded his term as President, serving as the youngest President of the Chapter. Robert currently serves as on the Executive Committee as Immediate Past President of the South Carolina Chapter and as a National Board Representative from South Carolina. His involvement in ABOTA is a testament to his dedication to justice and reputation throughout this state as a trial attorney. ABOTA is a national association of experienced and distinguished trial lawyers and judges. ABOTA and its members are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA membership consists of more than 7,600 lawyers—equally balanced between plaintiff and defense—and judges spread among 96 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. ABOTA is an invitation-only organization. Members must have significant civil jury trial experience. Members must also exhibit the virtues of civility, integrity and professionalism by following the Code of Professionalism and Principles of Civility.
