  • NADC Names Three Senior Partners as Nation’s Top Attorneys

    Philadelphia personal injury lawyers discuss nation’s top attorneys.The National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC) recently named Senior Partners Debra Jensen, Rick Jurewicz, and Michael Malvey as three of the “Nation’s Top Attorneys” for 2020, an honor bestowed upon less than 1% of practicing attorneys across the country.

    The NADC and its Selection Process

    The NADC is a professional organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. Honorees not only have to elevate the standards of the Bar but also must create a benchmark for other legal practitioners to emulate in order to be selected as recipients of the NADC’s coveted award.

    The organization employs a rigorous, multi-step selection process to identify the nation’s leading attorneys. Candidates must successfully pass through four stages before selection:

    • Identification by an in-house research team or nomination by current or former clients or other practicing attorneys
    • NADC researchers vet potential recipients via information sourced from their public profiles, case results, client reviews, and firm websites. The researchers also evaluate several other factors, such as leadership in legal organizations, community involvement, education, trial experience, and more
    • A blue ribbon panel comprised of distinguished attorneys selects candidates to move on to the final stage, and:
    • A judicial review board made up of former judges assesses the blue ribbon panel’s selection list and makes the final decisions

    Only attorneys who pass through all four stages of the selection process successfully are the nation’s leading and elite legal practitioners.
