The National Board of Trial Advocacy has announced that Florida Trial Team Managing Shareholder Robert E Bonner has become Board Certified as a Civil Trial Advocate. Mr. Bonner joins a growing number of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel.
The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board certified attorneys must successfully complete includes: demonstration of substantial trial experience, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency, attendance of continuing legal education courses, submission of legal writing documents, proof of good standing and passing of an examination.
Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve. Board certifications are the only distinctions awarded by non-profit organizations. The NBTA as well as all board certifying organizations are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. Bonner is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
