Why Should You Choose A Board Certified Attorney?

After getting injured in an accident, the only thing that many people are sure of is that they need compensation. Unfortunately, obtaining this compensation is often not an easy process, and many attorneys may advertise themselves as experienced and knowledgeable. You want an advocate who has the certifications and history of results to help you get the best possible outcome.

Choosing a lawyer who is a Nationally Board Certified Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) is often the right choice. Still, you may not know what this certification means and who can obtain it. This page will explain the requirements to become a nationally board-certified specialist by the NBTA and why you want to choose a lawyer with this prestigious qualification.

Who Can Become Nationally Board Certified?

To become a Board Certified Attorney by the NBTA, the attorney must prove themselves as having extensive knowledge in their chosen field of legal specialization. Before certifying an attorney, the NBTA reviews the individual’s experience, obtains judicial and peer reviews, and requires applicants to pass an exam. Additionally, certified attorneys must prove that they have remained at the top of their fields with continuing education and maintaining a high standard of practice.

When hiring an NBTA Board Certified Attorney, you can rest easy knowing that the attorney:

  • Has demonstrated considerable experience and results in their chosen area of the law

“Highly Recommended” is the epitome of an understatement when it comes to the firm of McDonald At Law!! Michael McDonald’s genuine pleasant, and empathetic demeanor masks his legal astuteness, and the level of aggressiveness he implements in pursuit of a victim’s right and the monetary compensation legally entitled to us. I was involved in a motor vehicle accident at the hands of an intoxicated driver in York County. In my case I suffered what I described as an atypical injury, Mr. McDonald offered to be my Lawyer immediately after explaining to him the events leading to and after being struck in turn causing me to have a heart attack, when another law firm seemed hesitant. McDonald At Law secured a sizable monetary compensation that not only met my expectation but exceeded it. Mr. McDonald’s wealth of experience, and legal prowess is priceless and never did he act as the case was beneath his practice. In the end my family and I were well compensated, but also felt justified. Thank you McDonald At Law!!

Back in 2014 I was injured didn’t know what to do but my wife suggested I call Mike McDonald at law I’m not going to say that I really believe in luck but I will say it was the greatest blessing of my entire life that I had the opportunity to pick the best lawyer in Pennsylvania and maybe all of America in Mike McDonald. I needed surgery and Mike came to my home just to make sure that I was OK personally, and he told me not to worry about anything but to just get well he really cares about people and that is something you can’t pay for. Mike’s firm was the most professional operation I have ever had the opportunity to witness over the last 3 1/2 years . All I can say is this if you’ve been injured and you need help there’s only one person that you should call and that’s McDonald at law. From my experience is that when I arrived at his office the first time I met a lawyer and when I left his office the last time I felt like I had a friend. For superior service and expert litigation, remember there’s only one number to call if you ever get hurt it’s McDonald at law.
