Don was elected President of the American Board of Trial Advocates in 1992 and received that organization’s 1992 Masters in Trial award. During his tenure, he led a delegation of lawyers to Czechoslovakia and later to Russia to produce the first civil jury trials in the history of those two emerging democracies.

Later, he was honored with the Chief Justice award for civility and professionalism, the highest award possible for a lawyer in Georgia. He now serves on the Advisory Committee for the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. The College trains the majority of new judges in the United States. In 1990 and again in 1992, he was named Trial Lawyer of the Year. In 2008 he received the Tradition of Excellence Award by the Georgia State Bar.
