A Message From Our Executive Director

An image of Michelle Swanner
Michelle Swanner
Executive Director of The National Trial Lawyers
"The National Trial Lawyers has continued to grow each year by doing what matters most for our members - promoting excellence and fostering diversity in the legal profession.

We elevate our members by recognizing them nationally as leaders in their region, and we work exclusively with the nation's premier trial attorneys to provide cutting-edge advocacy training, legal education, and networking opportunities for all members.

I invite you to explore all that The NTL has to offer and reach out if you would like to learn more about membership."

Mission & Goals

The National Trial Lawyers' mission is to promote excellence and foster diversity in the legal profession through advocacy training, networking and education of trial lawyers. The National Trial Lawyers promotes and endorses legal educational programs, including its annual Trial Lawyers Summit. Our goal is to enable members to draw upon the association's strong training, educational and networking resources so they may have benefits that were either unavailable or difficult to find on their own. Because The National Trial Lawyers' membership includes both civil plaintiff and criminal defense attorneys, members have valuable opportunities to gain ideas, referrals and strategies from the premier lawyers who make up our membership. Our website is also a resource for plaintiffs, victims and consumers. By making reference resources available to them, we also hope to connect them with association members in their area.

The National Trial Lawyers also endeavors to keep its members current on business and professional matters of interest through frequent publications. In addition to the Trial Lawyers Summit, The National Trial Lawyers publishes a quarterly magazine called The Trial Lawyer. Members receive a subscription to the magazine as part of their annual dues. The National Trial Lawyers also updates its members on the latest top verdicts in its bi-weekly e-newsletter, Voice for Justice. Members are also encouraged to submit their latest verdicts, accomplishments and news for our news blog and for our Raising the Bar blog.
