Inner Circle of Advocates


First San Diego Attorney Selected for Prestigious Trial Lawyer Group Based on Successful Trials, Verdicts

San Diego attorney Craig McClellan, of The McClellan Law Firm, has been selected to join The Inner Circle of Advocates, a prestigious national organization of the 100 best plaintiff lawyers in the United States.

McClellan has obtained over 70 verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more, often representing those who have been injured or the estates of those killed by defective products.

He is the first San Diego lawyer admitted to the organization. The Inner Circle of Advocates was formed in 1972 with the specific goal of giving the best plaintiff attorneys in the country a forum where they could exchange ideas and information to better serve their clients. Since then, that tradition of collaboration has continued. Members share their knowledge, experts, ideas, suggestions, and trial strategies, as well as their problems.

"Craig was selected because of his consistent record of success for his clients, most notably his experience in major product liability cases," said John Norman, president. "We look forward to his contributing to an organization known for its sharing of best practices, to the ultimate benefit of anyone who may have suffered unnecessarily and needs professional representation."

Other members of The Inner Circle of Advocates include United States Senator and former candidate for Vice President, John Edwards, and Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

"The Inner Circle serves as a brain trust and think tank for its members," said McClellan. "This gives each member a considerable advantage in accessing the best legal minds in the country to represent his clients, particularly in complex, high-stakes litigation."
