Welcome to the National Board of Trial Advocacy
BOARD CERTIFIED - PROVEN, TESTED EXCELLENCE®
The National Board of Trial Advocacy grants permission of the 2016 promotional videos to be used only by a NBTA member attorney in good standing on their website or related social media free of charge. The video may not be altered, edited or excerpted.
What is a Board Certified Attorney?
A National Board of Trial Advocacy Certified Attorney has demonstrated skill and expertise in a particular field and has proven it through rigorous examination and testing by the NBTA. The NBTA, and other organizations accredited by the American Bar Association must demonstrate that lawyers certified have an enhanced level of expertise and substantial involvement in the specialty area of certification. The standards are designed to enable the NBTA to evaluate thoroughly the objectives, standards and procedures of attorneys and to facilitate public access to appropriate legal services.
What is Specialization?
Similar to the medical profession in which the body of knowledge is so large that it's impossible for one doctor to remain current in all specialty areas, the body of law has grown so large and complex that attorneys can no longer be all things to all people. Unlike the medical profession, which has embraced specialization and specialty certification, the legal arena has been slow to acknowledge publicly what it has known for years: nearly all lawyers specialize but do so without substantiation beyond “reputation” or simply saying it is so.
The Benefits of Membership
Earning Board Certification allows you to hold yourself out as a specialist in the area of law in which you are certified. Board certification is proven, tested excellence and means an attorney has taken the extra step to earn this status. Which is exactly what the consumers of legal services want; an attorney who is willing to take the extra step.
