At Themis Advocates Group, we are committed to providing clients throughout the country with attorneys who are dedicated to excellence in the practice of law. Many of our attorneys are Fellows at the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA). Attorneys Michael J. (“Maz”) Mazurczak and Robert P. Powers—two attorneys from one of our member law firms Melick & Porter, LLP—have been Fellows at LCA for several years.
About Litigation Counsel of America
The LCA is an honorary society that is limited to 3,500 Fellows who embody “the new face of the American bar.” LCA Fellows represent less than half a percent of all lawyers in America, but are made up of a diverse group of people from all segments of the bar.
According to the LCA website, “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.”
The LCA selects Fellows for invitation after evaluating their accomplishments and professionalism in their legal practice. In general, Fellows have advanced significantly in their careers, having achieved Partner or Shareholder level or are solo practitioners with more than twelve years of practice.
