Kathy McArthur, founder of the McArthur Law Firm, has been recertified as a member of the National Board of Trial Advocacy for continually demonstrating special knowledge, skills and proficiency.
“We take great pride in representing real people with real injuries and doing the best job possible to obtain fair compensation and justice for them,” McArthur said. “Helping people and standing up for their right to fair and full compensation is why our firm exists and why I continue to look forward to coming to work every day.”
McArthur is a part of a growing number of trial attorneys who have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer 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
- Submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency
- Attendance of continuing legal education courses and proof of good standing.
Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve. Board certifications are the only distinctions awarded by non-profit organizations. The NBTA, as well as all board certifying organizations, are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.
Only 3 percent of lawyers are board certified. McArthur is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty areas.
