It’s an honor to be elected Top 10 Under 40 in Arizona by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA).
Who is NACDA? What is the process for being selected Top 10 Under 40?
NACDA’s Website States:
The National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys is an organization devoted to recognizing the top criminal defense attorneys in the nation. With over a million attorneys in the United States, choosing the best lawyer is difficult. However, through a stringent selection process, the NACDA awards the best criminal defense attorneys in each state with our most prestigious honor of being named “TOP 10”. The very few attorneys (less than 1%) that are good enough to make our list have demonstrated an extraordinary amount of knowledge, skill, experience, expertise and success in their practice of criminal defense.
The attorneys that make our list have to first be nominated by a licensed practicing attorney. Second, our research staff verifies that they meet the minimum requirements of membership. Then they have to be one of 50 attorneys chosen to advance to the final selection stage by our processing committee. And, finally they have to be selected by our Board of Governors as the “TOP 10”. We know it is a tough process but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s an honor to be a member and be recognized for the service we strive to provide everyday: the best possible service we can for those charged with crimes across Arizona.
