Augustus Brown Awarded Rare DIPLOMATE Status by American Association for Justice
Highest Order of Distinction Earned Is Result of Dedication, Commitment and Enthusiasm for Better Serving Clients
Bel Air, Maryland, October 2013: The law firm of Brown, Brown & Young, P.A., announces that its principal member Augustus F. "Gus" Brown has been named a DIPLOMATE of the American Association for Justice (AAJ; formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America). The honor was promulgated at the recent Annual Convention of the AAJ in San Francisco.
Gus Brown is only the 118th attorney in AAJ history ever to have achieved Diplomate status.
The AAJ honors its attorney members who pursue advanced legal learning and professional development, enhancing their ability to best serve their clients, and acknowledging their dedication, commitment and enthusiasm. The AAJ awards three levels of distinction: Advocate, Fellow, and Diplomate. In order to achieve these distinctions, an attorney must attend AAJ Education trial skills college, seminar, tele-seminar, or convention classes, and thereby earn credits to apply toward the program. 30 credit hours achieves "Advocate" status; 200 hours "Fellow" status; and 400 AAJ Education credit hours, including attendance at the Ultimate Trial Advocacy Course: Art of Persuasion—a program reserved for AAJ's most accomplished trial attorneys — achieves Diplomate, the highest order of distinction.
As a DIPLOMATE of the American Association for Justice, Augustus Brown receives acknowledgement on-line on the AAJ site, as well as printed acknowledgement in Trial magazine and various AAJ publications. He is also honored at a special awards ceremony at the AAJ Annual Convention.
