September 25, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. - (September 25, 2010) – Ryan Ryan Deluca is pleased to congratulate Partner Kevin Tepas on his recent induction as a Fellow into the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America. The induction ceremony at which Kevin became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of 1,078 people during the 2010 Annual Meeting of the College in Washington, D.C.

Kevin is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross and University of Connecticut School of Law. Kevin’s practice at RRD focuses on the defense against claims of professional malpractice, primarily as to medical and dental care providers in personal injury and wrongful death cases but also as to claims of legal malpractice. Throughout his career, Kevin has enjoyed a diverse practice in all areas of personal injury litigation. He has tried a large number of jury cases to verdict in state and federal courts in Connecticut and boasts a significant win rate.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only 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. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed 1% of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,790 members in the United States and Canada.

The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute those accused of crime and those who defend them. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
