Morris James LLP is pleased to announce that partner Richard Galperin has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.

The induction ceremony took place during the 2007 Spring Meeting of the College in La Quinta, CA.

Founded in 1950, the College 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 minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,000 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows.

The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute 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.

Morris James congratulates Mary M. Culley, Gretchen S. Knight and Francis ""Pete"" J. Jones, Jr. for their nomination in Delaware Today's ""Top Lawyers"" survey which appears in the August 2006 issue.

Mary M. Culley is a partner with Morris James' Tax, Estates and Trusts Practice Group. She often lectures to professional and community groups on estate planning and probate, planning for families with special needs children, charitable giving, Medicaid planning and planning for the elderly. Earlier this year, Ms. Culley received the 2006 Themis Award from the DuPont Women Lawyers' Network. The Themis Award, established in 2002, is given annually to recognize a member of the network who affects the business of DuPont in a positive manner by ""promoting legal excellence through the success, development and professional advancement of the women lawyers representing DuPont."" Ms. Culley also supports the next generation of women professionals and promotes issues of importance to women in the community by serving as a member of the board of directors of the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Council. She is also a member of the board of trustees of Ursuline Academy.

Gretchen S. Knight is a partner with Morris James' Family Law Practice Group. She has been nominated for her work in a number of Delaware Today surveys. As a member of the Delaware State Bar Association, she currently serves on a subcommittee on the educational needs of foster children for the Child Protection Accountability Commission, and she is a member of the Preliminary Review Committee of the Board on Professional Responsibility. She is also a member of the Melson-Arsht Inn of Court.

Francis ""Pete"" J. Jones, Jr. is a partner with Morris James' Personal Injury Practice Group. He is a frequent speaker on tort and insurance issues and on trial techniques and strategies. In the area of alternative dispute resolution, he is often selected as an arbitrator and/or mediator. Mr. Jones is presently an Associate Trustee of the Delaware Supreme Court's Client Security Trust Fund. He is a member of the Board of the Delaware Law Related Education Program and Chair of the High School Mock Trial Committee. He is also a member and Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the National High School Mock Trial Program. In 2005, Mr. Jones received the Distinguished Mentoring Award during the Annual Bench & Bar Conference in Dover, Delaware. The Distinguished Mentoring Award is presented to the ""Delaware lawyer or judge who, by distinguished mentoring of other Delaware lawyers (or future lawyers) over a period of many years, has served as an inspiration to and a model for those lawyers in striving for and maintaining the highest standards in their professional careers and in their community involvement.
