October 6, 2014 Firm News

Armstrong Teasdale Partner Timothy J. Gearin was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers during the College’s 2014 annual meeting in London, England.

Fellowship in the College is extended only by invitation to those who have mastered the art of advocacy and to those whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism and civility. Lawyers invited must have a minimum of 15 years of trial experience. Currently, there are approximately 5,700 fellows across the United States and Canada, including active, Emeritus, judicial and honorary Fellows.

At Armstrong Teasdale, Gearin leads the firm’s Health Care Litigation practice representing hospitals, physicians and nurses across the country. The group also defends corporations in product liability cases and business disputes. Gearin and his team recently won Missouri’s second-largest 2013 defense verdict in a multi-million dollar claim. The award was given by Missouri Lawyers Weekly, which ranks verdicts in the state. This was the second time that the publication honored Gearin’s group for its work on this case. It was also the fourth top defense ranking for the group since 2002.

Gearin received his J.D. from Saint Louis University School of Law and B.S.N., cum laude, from the University of Missouri - St. Louis.
