BD&P congratulates Doug Mills who recently became a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.

 Doug was inducted into the American College at the 2016 Spring Meeting of the College in Maui, Hawaii. 

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 fifteen 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. 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 important legal issues relating to its mission. The College strongly supports the 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.

Doug joins BD&P partners David Haigh, Q.C. and Dan McDonald, Q.C. who were previously welcomed into the College.
