U of A President Honors AZ Injury Law

President Robert "Bobby" Robbins honored the all-alumni AZ Injury Law team of Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian for donating $250,000 to help launch the new Tom Mauet Advocacy Center at the Arizona Law School and create the new Kevin R. Boyle Trial Courtroom, all part of the renovation for the University of Arizona Law's south lobby, which will be renamed the Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian Lobby.

Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian has been a major contributor to the “A New Day in Court” fundraising initiative in support of University of Arizona Law's Advocacy program which will renovate student courtrooms, establish an endowed faculty chair of advocacy, and support student experiential learning. 

The firm's founding partner and 1977 University of Arizona alumnus Ted Schmidt is a member of the "A New Day in Court" steering committee and is rallying more classmates and peers to join the fundraising effort with the goal of raising $6 million for the initiative.

"Our firm wants to ensure that the University of Arizona remains an elite institution that is equipped to train the next generation of successful trial attorneys," said Schmidt. "We envision the future Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian Lobby to be a place where Arizona Law students gather in study groups, watch their classmates perform in court sessions, and engage in those invigorating discussions that make law school so interesting."

About the Author

Ted A. Schmidt

Ted's early career as a trial attorney began on the other side of the fence, in the offices of a major insurance defense firm. It was there that Ted acquired the experience, the skills and the special insight into defense strategy that have served him so well in the field of personal injury law. Notable among his successful verdicts was the landmark Sparks vs. Republic National Life Insurance Company case, a $4.5 million award to Ted's client. To this day, it is the defining case for insurance bad faith, and yet it is only one of several other multi-million dollar jury judgments won by Ted during his career. He is certified by the State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in "wrongful death and bodily injury litigation".
