(Charlotte)— Harvey L. Cosper, Jr. was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America. The College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship is by invitation only and follows a lengthy and careful investigation of nominees. Less than one percent of attorneys in any given state are admitted to the College.
Mr. Cosper is a partner in the Litigation department of Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP. He has practiced law for 32 years, primarily representing healthcare organizations and professionals in medical malpractice and product liability cases.
The College strives to improve and to elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute people 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.
Mr. Cosper received his Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University and his BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He joins commercial litigation attorneys Robert Spearman and Catharine Arrowood as partners of Parker Poe as Fellows of the College.
