Steve Laird of the Law Offices of Steven C. Laird, P.C. is 1 of only 9 lawyers in Texas, 1 of 37 in the nation (at the time of this release) to successfully achieve Board Certification in Truck Accident Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. To achieve board certification, a lawyer is thoroughly vetted through a detailed process in which real-world experience and results handling truck crash cases are verified, and skills and knowledge are tested. Unlike some other accommodations, board certification cannot be purchased for any sum of money, and no attorneys get favored treatment.

Fort Worth Personal Injury Lawyer Steve Laird stated,  ” Regardless of advertising, few law firms have actually tried a trucking accident case to a jury verdict. We have tried many to verdict. These cases are complex and hard to win. The large corporations and their insurance companies, on the other side, have the resources to hire highly skilled and experienced teams to represent them.

Having an experienced and highly qualified lawyer to represent victims and their families is very important in securing meaningful outcomes. Personal Injury Attorneys who achieve Board Certification in Truck Accident Law separate themselves from other attorneys by demonstrating their experience, expertise, and commitment to excellence in handling Truck Accident cases.”    

In the competitive arena of Truck Accident Law, NBTA certification provides a much-needed objective set of standards illustrating an attorney’s experience, qualifications, and expertise. Certification requires successful completion of a rigorous application process providing consumers of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel. The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board certified attorneys must successfully complete includes: demonstration of substantial trial experience in truck accident cases, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency and ethics, attendance of continuing legal education courses, submission of legal writing documents, proof of good standing and passing of an examination. Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve.

There is no dispute about the bona fides and the relevance of NBTA certification…. Disclosure of information such as that on petitioner’s letterhead both serves the public interest and encourages the development and utilization of meritorious certification programs for attorneys.
