The ABCL is an exclusive, invitation-only society comprised of 200 accomplished criminal defense lawyers from the United States.

Attorneys must have at least 10 years of criminal trial experience and have won at least 35 major felony cases to be considered for admission.

Fellowship in the ABCL joins a long list of accolades Waddington has accumulated over the years. Just earlier this year, he was listed in ‘Super Lawyers: Rising Stars,’ a list of the top 2.5% of lawyers in the State of Georgia, and also in the ‘Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the USA’ by The National Trial Lawyers Association.

Waddington is a best selling author and a contributing author in the 2013 and 2014 American Bar Association (ABA) books, “The State of Criminal Justice”, the cornerstone publication of the ABA which serves as a fundamental resource for legal policy-makers, academics and students.

Mr. Waddington defends serious criminal cases worldwide. Some of his high profile cases have been reported on by major media outlets including CNN, The Rolling Stone, The New York Times, NPR, The New Yorker, Time, ABC Nightline, Good Morning America, the BBC and have been the subject of books and movies.

“Michael’s achievements are not only a sound testament of his professional aptitude as an attorney, but also of his character and repute among his peers and the legal community,” said Timothy Bilecki, Managing Partner at The Bilecki Law Group, LLLC.
