On October 3, 2015, Paul H. Stephenson was inducted into The American College of Trial Lawyers in Chicago, Illinois, joining six Watkins & Eager attorneys who are members of The American College of Trial Lawyers:  David L. Ayers, William F. Goodman, Jr., P.N. Harkins, III, Walter T. Johnson, Mildred M. Morris and Michael W. Ulmer

The American College of Trial Lawyers offers fellowship only by invitation, after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers 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. Membership may never exceed more than 1% of the total lawyer population of any state or province.
