What Does it Mean to be Certified as a Civil Trial Specialist?

To be certified as a civil trial specialist in Tennessee a lawyer must undergo an exhaustive screening of his credentials including documentation of his experience, judicial and peer references and an exam, and must meet all other requirements of the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). The lawyer must also report all disciplinary matters brought before any official body, whether public or confidential, for scrutiny by the Standards Committee of the NBTA. Possessing the NBTA certificate means that attorney has been held to a higher standard of professional and personal conduct. There are currently only 22 certified civil trial specialists in Knoxville.
