Woods Aitken is proud to announce that Joel D. Heusinger, a partner in the Firm’s Construction Law practice group, has been named a Fellow to the American College of Construction Lawyers (ACCL).
“This is a well-deserved honor for Joel,” said Allen Overcash, Of Counsel at Woods Aitken and a longtime Fellow of the College. “The nomination recognizes the immense practical assistance Joel has given many construction clients as well as Joel’s dedication to improvements in the construction industry. I am proud to be associated with a person of such outstanding character and ability.”
Founded in 1989, the ACCL is a national organization of lawyers who have demonstrated skill, experience, and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice, or in the teaching, of construction law, and who are dedicated to excellence in the specialized practice of construction law.
