You probably repeatedly hear the same things when it comes to legal representation. Law firms claim to win your cases for large sums. They aggressively go after you when you are at your most vulnerable. However, how can you be sure if the attorneys are as successful as they say they are? Outside of looking at their record of accomplishment, it is important to see if they have been awarded anything or if they are members of exclusive organizations. One of the clearest indicators of a successful lawyer is if they are a part of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®.
The Million Dollar Advocates Forum® is an organization that recognizes the top trial lawyers in the nation. Established in 1993, the forum only allows qualified attorneys who have won settlements that are at least worth one million dollars. Out of all the litigators in the nation, there are only 4,000 members. That makes up less than 1% of the lawyers in the United States.
In order to become a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®, attorneys must fill out a comprehensive application that details all of their accomplishments. To qualify, they must be in good standing with the bar and should have served as a principle counsel on the case that earned one million dollars or more. After the application is received, a trial counsel reviews and verifies the information. They attorneys are then alerted if they have been accepted or not.
