The Litigation Counsel of America inducted litigator Mark L.D. Wawro (pictured), a partner in Susman Godfrey in Houston, during LCA’s 2013 spring conference and induction of fellows held May 2 in Newport Beach, Calif.
Wawro says it was “a nice honor” to become an LCA fellow.
“It’s a wonderful organization,” he says. “It’s a group of trial lawyers from both the plaintiff and defense sides of the bar.”
According to LCA’s website, its membership is limited to 3,500 fellows, representing less that one-half of one percent of American lawyers.
Wawro says that after he received his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law in 1979, he served as a law clerk for 5th U.S. Circuit Judge Carolyn King. He says he joined Susman in October 1980 and handles plaintiff and defense work in his practice.
