The National Board of Trial Advocacy Division of the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification was the first American Bar Association accredited attorney board certifying agency in the world. Founded in 1977, NBTA offers board certification for Trial Lawyers, Criminal Lawyers, and Family Lawyers. NBLSC also offers board certification for Social Security Disability Lawyers. To qualify for one of these four certifications lawyers must have extensive experience in their specialty and meet rigorous objective quality standards.
