What does it mean?

civil trial law

What is civil trail law? It may include: 

  • Civil litigation
  • Personal injury litigation 
  • Other types of litigation that are not criminal law

In most cases, money damages are usually at stake in civil litigation

What is Specialization?

Legal specialization is similar to that of the medical field, where attorneys choose a specific area of the law to focus on. An attorney can go through the National Board of Trial Advocacy to try and become certified in their particular area. 

Attorney's who are certified go through a screening of their credentials, including: 

  • Documentation of their case experiences
  • Judges and peer references
  • A lengthy written exam

There is a rigorous application process and the exam is highly comprehensive about the particular specialty. 

Why does this matter to you?

When you work with an attorney that is National Board of Trial Advocacy certified, this means that you have chosen an attorney who has dedicated his or her professional career to the selected field of choice. 

According to the NBTA, less than 4% of all practicing lawyers are certified by an ABA-accredited or state-sponsored certification board.
