THE HISTORY OF THE INNER CIRCLE OF ADVOCATESWelcome to the Inner Circle of Advocates' website
The Inner Circle of Advocates is an invitation-only group of the best plaintiff lawyers in the United States. Since its inception in 1972, our organization has included the top plaintiff trial attorneys in the nation among its membership. Our mission is to promote the highest standards of courtroom competence and the mutual fellowship and exchange of knowledge among outstanding trial lawyers. Membership is limited to attorneys of exceptional qualifications who are respected among their peers and who are experienced and skillful in the handling of courtroom litigation. Membership in The Inner Circle of Advocates is testament to our members' accomplishments as plaintiff trial attorneys. Although spread across the country, members share experience, skill, and knowledge, and often function as a collective law firm in the pursuit of justice.
Many times people who have been injured and families who have lost loved ones find themselves facing big corporations or insurance companies with unlimited resources to deny just compensation to those they harmed. Through the work and skill of our talented members, cover-ups can be exposed and those at fault held accountable. By punishing the guilty for their wrongs, we make America a safer place.
We thank you for visiting our website and hope that you will find it informative and helpful. Our members stand ready to assist you with any questions you may have.

The Inner Circle of Advocates
The Inner Circle of Advocates was conceived by Tucson, Arizona, attorney Richard Grand on May 24, 1972 when he decided there was a need for an organization made up of the most skilled plaintiff attorneys to share information about their work. Richard created the logo, which represents a seven figure verdict of $1 million or more. He decided that at least one million dollar verdict and the completion of fifty personal injury cases were the threshold for membership. Total membership was to be limited to fifty members.
