Why Choose a Board-Certified Attorney?

Review any reputable source on the subject and they will all say the same thing—a successful trial lawyer requires significant knowledge and expertise beyond the general practice of law, and not every attorney is qualified or even capable of handling every case. By becoming NBTA-certified, lawyers prove themselves to have extensive experience in their specialty and to be the most qualified in their professional field.
