Frequently Asked Questions

What is The National Trial Lawyers?

The National Trial Lawyers is a member-driven organization composed of the premier trial lawyers from across the country who meet stringent qualifications as civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense trial lawyers. Through educational and networking opportunities, we strive to help our members build law practices which encompass superior knowledge, skill, experience and success.

How was I selected for membership into The NTL Top 100 or Top 40 Under 40?

Only the top trial lawyers from each state or highly-populated regions of certain states who are actively practicing in civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense law are eligible for invitation. Invitees must demonstrate superior qualifications, leadership skills, and trial results as a legal professional. The selection process for this elite honor is based on a multi-phase process based upon objective and uniformly applied criteria which includes peer nominations combined with third party research.
Prospective members of The NTL are carefully screened prior to receiving an invitation for membership. The criteria used in the evaluation process include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Reputation among peers, the judiciary, and the public
  • The previous year’s achievements, settlements and verdicts as a trial lawyer
  • Board Certification as a trial lawyer or trial attorney
  • Nominations received from leading trial lawyers, current members and/or our executive committee members
  • Leadership and membership within other national and state trial lawyer organizations
  • Rankings and ratings of the attorney by established organizations.

Because the population of attorneys by state varies greatly, some states are divided into regions to recognize a comparative number of the Top 100 or Top 40 attorneys. For states with a higher population of attorneys that are divided into regions, a minimum of 7,000 attorneys must exist for each region.

Membership is not automatically renewed; attorneys are reevaluated annually to determine whether their activities and accomplishments qualify them for continued membership.

Why should I accept an invitation to join and what do I get for my membership dues?
