DALLAS – LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Veteran Dallas attorney Mike Lynn, a partner with the law firm Lynn Tillotson & Pinker LLP, has been elected as Co-Chair of the American Bar Association’s Federal Practice Task Force for the ABA Section of Litigation.

In naming Mr. Lynn to this prominent leadership role for 2007 and 2008, ABA leaders cited his “achievement as one of the nation’s leading litigators.”

The ABA puts great emphasis on its task forces and particularly the Federal Practice Task Force in re-writing and amending the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

“I’m honored for the opportunity to take on this important professional challenge,” says Mr. Lynn. “I’ve always admired the great work the ABA does for our judicial system, and for all it does to tell the American people about what’s going on in the field of law. I’m proud to make a contribution to this important cause.”

For many years, Mr. Lynn has fought for his clients in the nation’s federal courts. He specializes in Complex Commercial Litigation, Business Torts, Trade Secrets, Financial Fraud, Lender Liability Law and Bad Faith Litigation. He has tried to verdict nearly 85 civil and criminal jury trials and more than 100 non-jury and injunction matters, winning more than $300 million for his clients in trial or by settlement.

Mr. Lynn has amassed an impressive array of professional honors. In 1999, he was honored in The National Law Journal for winning the nation’s toughest defense verdict, and was recognized again by the NLJ in 2002 for the same honor. Mr. Lynn is the only lawyer in Texas to twice earn Top Defense Win recognition. He has earned selection to the Texas Super Lawyers list on five separate occasions in Texas Monthly magazine. In 2006, LawDragon listed Mr. Lynn as one of the top 500 lawyers in the United States. D Magazine honored him as one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas and one of the Best Litigators in Dallas, and the Dallas Business Journal named him one of the Top 10 Trial Lawyers in Dallas.
