Palmer Gene Vance II Named Chair of the ABA Section of Litigation

Palmer Gene Vance II of Stoll Keenon Ogden is the 2018-2019 Chair of the American Bar Association Section of Litigation. With nearly 50,000 litigators, judges, and arbitrators, it the largest section of the ABA.  

 “I am keenly aware that there has never been a Chair of the Section of Litigation from a place as small as Lexington, Ky.—and 300,000 people is not really that small,” said Mr. Vance at the Annual Meeting. “But, it calls to mind that most litigation in this country does not occur on the coasts, in the cities or within the halls of the AmLaw100. Most litigation is conducted by solo and small firm lawyers in smaller cities and towns. As a few of you have heard me say, many of the best trial lawyers in this country are in places like Riverton, Wyo., Lincoln, Neb., Evansville, Ind., and yes, London, Ky.”  

Mr. Vance’s initiatives as chair include focusing on delivering member benefits to solo and small firm litigators, continuation of the Section’s Children’s Rights Litigation Committee, and improving lawyer well-being through its Mental Health & Wellness Task Force.
