Kathleen Loucks, a Lommen Abdo litigator, achieved certification as a civil trial specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA).
Loucks joins a very limited list of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel. The elaborate screening of credentials that all MSBA Certified Civil Trial Specialists must successfully complete includes: providing evidence of substantial involvement in the specialty area and appropriate references from judges and other lawyers; passing a written examination in the substantive and procedural law in the specialty area; being admitted to practice and in good standing in Minnesota; demonstrating that they have completed at least 30 hours of continuing legal education courses in the specialty area in the past three years. The MSBA, as well as all board certifying organizations, is committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.
Loucks earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Minnesota and is a graduate of William Mitchell College of Law. She is licensed to practice in Minnesota and Wisconsin state courts, Minnesota federal court and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, where she represents clients in cases involving the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
In the area of civil trial law, only 7% of the certified civil trial specialists are women. 20% of Lommen Abdo’s attorneys are MSBA certified attorneys!
