Tom Metier, the senior managing partner of Metier Law Firm, has been recertified as a Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. The certification indicates that the lawyer has met a higher standard of personal and professional conduct, and must be renewed every five years.
The National Board of Trial Advocacy is a subdivision of the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification (NBLSC). It was the first attorney certification agency in the world to be accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA). Founded in 1977 as a non-profit, the organization uses their certification program to hold attorneys to a higher standard, and help consumers find attorneys who are more experienced and better qualified.
To renew the certification, attorneys must pass an extensive testing and approval process that takes both education and courtroom experience into account. Candidates must present judicial and peer references, submit a legal writing document, pass an exam and provide documentation of their experience (for instance, a lawyer seeking a civil trial certification should have spent at least 30 percent of his time in civil litigation in the last five years).
The board also takes note of a lawyer’s personal conduct. Every candidate must disclose all disciplinary matters that have been presented to an official body, whether public or private. The National Board of Legal Specialty Certification Standards Committee reviews the action, and determines if the candidate is still eligible to be recertified.
