Choose a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer
In medicine, most hospitals will not let physicians practice without proof of board certification. Why? Because board certification provides an objective measure of experience and expertise.
In the field of law – lawyers admitted to their state bar associations are permitted to accept cases in any area of the law – regardless of whether they are well qualified.
Years ago, the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) was formed in the belief that the law profession and consumers would benefit from an organization focused on establishing objective standards by which to measure legal experience and expertise… and the National Board of Trial Advocacy certification process was created.
So what did seven of our personal injury lawyers at RisCassi and Davis do to become Board Certified?
A great deal… Each had to undergo a very thorough screening of their credentials, including documentation of their experience, judicial and peer references, and an exam. They also had to report any and all disciplinary matters brought before any official body, whether public or private, for scrutiny by the NBLSC Standards Committee.
All personal injury lawyers are not created equal. It’s very important not to settle for just any personal injury law firm. Make sure the majority of the lawyers in the law firm you choose are Board Certified. It matters.
