January 24, 2014
A to Z Partner Dennis LaRochelle was installed as President Elect of the California statewide chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, CAL-ABOTA.
LaRochelle has served as Vice-President and Treasurer of the prestigious organization and is the first Ventura County trial attorney to be elevated to statewide office since the local California Coast Chapter – which covers Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties – was formed in 1988. As President Elect of CAL-ABOTA, LaRochelle will continue to strengthen relationships with the best trial lawyers in the state, giving his firm’s clients top resources statewide if matters arise outside this region.
CAL-ABOTA has approximately 1600 members and is a regional chapter of a national jury trial lawyers association, the American Board of Trial Advocates. The board of directors consists of officers from eight California chapters of ABOTA. ABOTA’s mission is to preserve the right to a jury trial in civil cases and to promote civility in trial practice. Membership in ABOTA is by election and limited to those trial attorneys who have met stringent trial experience criteria.
