Burlington, Vermont, March 16, 2021 – Dinse P.C. is pleased to announce that Nicole Andreson, a director and shareholder of the firm, has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.

The induction ceremony at which Ms. Andreson became a Fellow took place online during the recent 2021 Spring Meeting of the College.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.  Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality.  Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province.  There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows.

Ms. Andreson joined Dinse in 2007 and focuses her trial practice on the defense of professional malpractice and catastrophic personal injury actions.  Before joining Dinse, she prosecuted sex crimes at the Chittenden County State’s Attorneys’ Office for several years, and also served as an Assistant Attorney General at the Vermont Attorney General’s Office.  She lives in South Burlington with her husband and two children.
