Daniel H. Pfeifer Recertified by National Board of Trial Advocacy
Posted On behalf of Pfeifer Morgan & Stesiak on Sep 07, 2016 in Firm News
Pfeifer, Morgan & Stesiak's accomplished team of South Bend personal injury attorneys is proud to announce that founding partner Daniel H. Pfeifer has been recertified as a civil trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). This is the highest honor an attorney can receive as only about three percent of American lawyers are board certified.
Applicants seeking recertification must go through a rigorous application process to prove that they have substantial experience, skill and a commitment to excellence.
Attorneys must have spent at least 30 percent of their time in civil trial litigation during the five years preceding their application for recertification. Applicants must also show that they completed at least 45 hours of continuing legal education courses and must be in good standing with their state bar.
Applications are required to include six references, including four from lawyers in the same field and two from judges who have presided over the applicant's cases in the past three years. The NBTA sometimes seeks reference statements from others not on an application who are familiar with an attorney's work.
The goal of board certification is to thoroughly evaluate attorneys and improve the ability of consumers to find high quality lawyers to represent them.
Congratulations Daniel H. Pfeifer on this outstanding achievement!
