Assistant United States Attorney Lindsey Mitcham Lorence Admitted to American College of Trial Lawyers

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Arkansas

      LITTLE ROCK—Lindsey Mitcham Lorence, an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, is now a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.

      The induction ceremony at which Lindsey became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of approximately 525 during the Spring Meeting of the College in Key Biscayne, Florida. 

      Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. 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. There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. 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 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. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.

      Lindsey has been practicing in Little Rock for twenty-six years. The newly inducted Fellow is an alumna of the William H. Bowen University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Law, where she is now an adjunct professor.  Before joining the United States Attorney’s Office as an Assistant United States Attorney in the civil division, Lindsey was a law clerk for retired Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza, worked as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for the 6th Judicial District and was a Partner at Friday, Eldredge & Clark, LLP.
