Clark Hill Attorney Daniel J. Scully Jr. Received Award for Outstanding Service by ABOTA

December 13, 2017

DETROIT, MI – Daniel J. Scully Jr., a Member in Clark Hill’s Litigation Practice Group, recently received the Scully Award for Outstanding Service by the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), Michigan Chapter. The award, named after Daniel’s father who was a founding member of ABOTA in Los Angeles in 1958, is given to individuals who have served to further ABOTA’s mission to protect the Seventh Amendment’s right to trial by jury and ethical standards of practice and to advocate for more effective representation.

“A few years ago, after my father had passed, the Board created the award to acknowledge service to both Michigan ABOTA and National ABOTA. Without telling me, they named it the Scully award primarily in my father’s honor as a founding member of ABOTA, as well as for my contributions over the years,” said Daniel.  He continued, “The fact that the award keeps my father’s memory alive among the Michigan Chapter, who so warmly adopted him, means a lot to me and the family.”

Daniel has served on the Michigan Chapter Board for well over 20 years, and on the National Board for 15 years.  He is also a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a Member of its Michigan State Committee and a Fellow and Michigan State Chairman of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.
