Mark recently spoke at the Litigation Counsel of America’s Renaissance Symposium at the Harvard Club in New York City. Mark’s subject was “Are Pain and Suffering Damages Recoverable for Stillborn Infants in a Wrongful Death Action? A Case Study in the Application of Frye v. U.S.” The LCA is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society. Fellows are selected and invited into Fellowship after being evaluated for effectiveness and accomplishment in litigation and trial work. Mark was admitted as a Fellow in 2011.
LCA membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. 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.
