Eugene Brown Receives the Don E. Bailey Civility & Professionalism Award
In December 2016, Sedgwick San Francisco partner Eugene Brown received the Don E. Bailey Civility & Professionalism Award from the San Francisco Chapter of American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) at the Holiday Gala held at the St. Francis Hotel. The award honors one distinguished member each year “who continually exemplifies civility, professionalism and integrity in the practice of law while always vigorously, courageously and expertly advocating his/her clients’ causes.”
Brown is an exceptional trial attorney whose achievements have been repeatedly recognized by his peers. He is an active ABOTA member and has reached Diplomate status. He has served the organization as past president of the San Francisco Chapter, as a master trial attorney in the Masters in Trial Professional education series and is a faculty member of the ABOTA National Trial Academy. Brown exemplifies what this award represents and upholds ABOTA’s mission to preserve the Seventh Amendment right to a civil jury trial and to promote and teach excellence in trial advocacy for both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ attorneys every day.
