The National Association of Distinguished Counsel recently chose Debra A. Jensen, Peter M. Patton, Richard M. Jurewicz and Michael P. Malvey, attorneys at Galfand Berger, LLP as members of the 2016 Nation’s Top One Percent.
The “Nation’s Top Attorneys” award is comprised of less than 1% of all practicing attorneys in the US.
The NADC is a prestigious, professional organization that prides itself on the promotion of superior standards of legal excellence. The membership and award selection process is long and multi-stage one. First, candidates are identified by nomination or an in-house research team. Next comes an in-depth and quite vigorous evaluation, which often includes an examination of trial experience, case outcome, client reviews, professional awards and much more. Following the examination, a select group of blue ribbon panel attorneys review all information and begin to make their complex determinations. The fourth and final stage is a judicial review board, led by former judges. This process ensures that the members of the NADC exemplify the qualities of an Officer of the Court as well as by demonstrating virtue and admirable character throughout their practice of law.
