PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon Partner Michael J. Engle was inducted as a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America, at the 2019 ACTL Spring Meeting on March 2 in La Quinta, California.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers 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 15 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 and Canada.    

Engle, chair of the firm’s white-collar defense group, has more than 18 years of experience in federal criminal cases, complex white-collar defense matters, and internal or parallel investigations on behalf of corporations and other entities. He has represented white-collar defendants in complex, high-stakes federal and state prosecutions and has guided corporations and other organizations through the intricacies of government investigations. Engle has defended individuals and businesses in connection with grand jury subpoenas and in numerous jury trials. In recent years, Engle has developed a niche practice of defending against civil and/or criminal allegations relating to hazing conduct. He is co-chair of the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ White Collar Practice Committee, and a member of the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Federal Bar Association’s Criminal Law Committee and the American Bar Foundation.
