Scott Krist of The Krist Law Firm, P.C. has won a Litigator Award from the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents for the second year in a row. The awards are given by this well-respected organization only to a small number of lawyers each year who demonstrate excellence in their field.
What Are The Litigator Awards?
If you watch CNN, you may have seen an advertisement recently for the 2015 Litigator Awards ™ during Anderson Cooper 360, Wolf Blitzer, CNN Prime, or other shows on the news network. These ads are designed to raise awareness not just about attorneys receiving accolades, but also an important resource for anyone looking for the best attorney to trust with their case.
The Litigator Award is given by the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents only to those lawyers who represent the “superstars” in their field — and whether they’re the best is measured by the actual results they achieve. The awards are given based on verdict or settlements achieved on behalf of clients, and winners are among the top 1 percent of all lawyers.
Approximately 1.1 million lawyers are considered, but only about a dozen law firms in each state will receive a Litigator Award. When a lawyer wins this well-respected award, it’s a sign to potential clients that the lawyer is highly skilled in his or her field of practice.
In order to be nominated, an attorney must have shown “exemplary quality of practice” and “extraordinary litigation achievement” within one of 72 practice specialty categories. Attorneys can qualify in up to six categories. These qualities are demonstrated by achieving:
- One verified verdict or settlement of at least $1 million within the preceding 5 years in one specialty;
- One verified verdict or settlement of at least $5 million within the preceding 10 years in one specialty; or
- One verdict or settlement of at least $10 million within the preceding 20 years in one specialty.
Because the award is an indicator of legal prowess and quality representation, the Litigator Award website offers a referral service that allows people in need of legal services to search and obtain referrals for attorneys who have won the award in a given geographic location and field of legal specialty.
