Florida Bar President-Elect Ramón Abadin (J.D. '85) has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. The induction ceremony at which Abadin became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of approximately 585 persons during the recent 2015 Spring Annual Meeting of the College in Key Biscayne, Florida.
Founded in 1950, the ACTL 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 fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.
Mr. Abadin is a partner at the firm of Sedgwick LLP in Miami, where he focuses on complex commercial and tort matters that frequently involve significant insurance components. In addition to the American College of Trial Lawyers, Abadin is also involved in a number of other industry organizations including The Florida Bar in which he serves as the President Elect-Designate; the Cuban American Bar Association in which he is a Past-President; and the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary. He also served on and was chairman of the Third District Court of Appeal Judicial Nominating Commission and was a member of the City of Miami’s City Attorney Selection Committee.
