Congratulations to M&G Shareholder Anthony Livoti who was recently sworn in as the President of the South Carolina Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates. ABOTA is a national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges and an invitation-only organization. ABOTA and its members are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA membership consists of more than 7,300 lawyers—equally balanced between plaintiff and defense—and judges spread among 96 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Members must have at least five years of active experience as trial lawyers, have tried at least 10 civil jury trials to conclusion and possess additional litigation experience.
Livoti has been in practice for over 25 years and has maintained an active civil defense trial practice. In recent years he has expanded his practice and become a sought-after mediator as well.
