Clint is an honored member of ABOTA (American Board of Trial Advocates), a nationwide invitation-only organization of trial attorneys for both Plaintiffs and Defendants. ABOTA's members are required to have significant experience as lead attorney trying a large number of cases to jury verdict. ABOTA subjects each prospective and member to a scrupulous, intense, almost year-long local and national vetting process before finalizing the invitation to join. A high premium is placed upon a prospective member's reputation for collegiality and effectiveness in working with his or her opponents in jury trials. ABOTA membership is conditioned on an attorney's nationwide reputation among other attorneys for professional excellence and it includes the top Plaintiff and Defense Trial Lawyers in the country. ABOTA membership is awarded to individuals only, not to law firms.

Clint has been honored as "Martindale-Hubbell AV® Peer Review Rated" for over a quarter century. ("AV" = "Peer Rated For Highest Level of Professional Excellence") Martindale-Hubbell (Established in 1868) holds itself out as "The most trusted rating system for legal ability and ethical standards." This rating is awarded to individuals only and not to law firms.

Clint has been selected to the national "Super Lawyers List" in 2004 and from 2011 to now. (The "Super Lawyers" List purports to be a list of the most outstanding top 5% of all the lawyers in each state.) The award is given to select individuals only and not to law firms.

Clint is also an invited member of "National Trial Lawyers Top 100," which is an exclusive invitation-only national trial lawyers organization. This select membership is awarded to individuals only and not to law firms.

Clint is one of the few practicing lawyers also trained and certified under law as a civil litigation mediator.

Clint has achieved many million dollar, multimillion dollar and tens of million dollar case results in matters involving catastrophic injuries.
