PDI “annually honors a civil defense firm that best exemplifies the qualities of professionalism, dedication to the practice of law, promotion of the highest ideals of justice in the community and has a demonstrated commitment to PDI and its members”. PADC appreciates Ricci Tyrrell founder and PADC member Bill Ricci’s strong leadership of PADC in his current role as V.P.– Operations and prior years as V.P.- Programs, and Treasurer. PADC appreciates Bill’s commitment to guiding our organization of over 300 members through the COVID-19 judicial shutdown, and personally providing popular and pertinent CLE for our members. His popular CLEs have attracted many PADC members as well as non-members to learn valuable tips on high stake cross- examination and how to conduct remote mediations during the judicial shutdown. Congratulations, Bill!
