Wilk Auslander congratulates our partner, Stephen D. Hoffman on being selected as a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA), a trial lawyer honorary society limited to a maximum of 3500 of the approximately 1,200,00 lawyers in the United States, less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. Fellowship in the LCA is highly selective and by invitation only. Steve was inducted at LCA's Spring Conference this past spring in Newport Beach, California.
"We are pleased to see Steve recognized by the LCA. He has practiced litigation for decades at the highest level and this honor is well-deserved," commented Jack Wilk, Managing Partner of the firm.
The composition of the LCA is aggressively diverse, with recognition of excellence among American litigation and trial counsel across all segments of the bar. The purpose of the LCA is to recognize deserving, experienced, and highly qualified lawyers, to provide an outlet for scholarly authorship of legal articles on trial and litigation practice, to provide additional sources for professional development, to promote superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law, to assist in community involvement by its membership, and to advance a superior judiciary, by taking relevant positions on issues or legislation affecting judicial compensation and/or benefits, as well as those affecting the American litigation processes.
Steve served as the 50th President of the New York County Lawyers Association, and is currently a fellow and Director of the New York Bar Foundation and a fellow of the American Bar Foundation. He is a 1965 graduate of Columbia College in New York City and received a Juris Doctor Degree, cum laude, from the New York University School of Law, where he was an editor of the Law Review.
