Posted on September 4th, 2019 by Kathy Brookhart

We’re thrilled to announce that James L. McCrystal, Jr. will be honored with the 2019 Excellence in Advocacy Award at the Ohio Association of Civil Trial Attorneys (OACTA) annual meeting in Cleveland in November.

The “Excellence in Advocacy Award” honors McCrystal as a pillar of the bar who has distinguished himself by effective client representation, superior advocacy skills, exceptional professionalism and civility, good judgment in matters of trials and appeals, and leading through exemplary civic, community and bar activities.

“Jim is a renowned litigator with focus in products liability, construction litigation commercial disputes and general litigation consulting,” said Matthew O’Connell, Sutter O’Connell managing shareholder.  “We are delighted to see him recognized by peers for his significant legal acumen.”

This is the second award earned by a Sutter O’Connell attorney. The 2017 Excellence in Advocacy Award was given to Larry Sutter, posthumously.
