Other lawyers named as ATRA "Legal Reform Champions" include: John Beisner of O'Melveny & Myers LLP; Griffin B. Bell of King & Spalding LLP; Theodore J. Boutrous, Jr. of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP; Elliot M. Kaplan of Daniels & Kaplan PC; Matthew C. McDonald of Miller Hamilton Snider & Odom LLC; Victor E.
