On March 15, 2011, Mr. Waterman was recognized for membership in the prestigious Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This follows a Gloucester jury verdict for $3,250,000.00 for assault and battery, which was coupled with companion jury verdicts of $1,250,000.00 and $500,000.00 plus pre-judgment interest of approximately $1,100,000.00.

Membership is exclusive, strictly limited to those lawyers who have obtained a multi-million dollar verdict or settlement that is final. Initially, Mr. Waterman had been a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum for a decade based on a $1,250,000.00 jury verdict he was awarded for a medical malpractice lawsuit in Hampton, Virginia.
