Avi Berk Achieves Recertification in Civil Trial Law With the National Board of Trial Advocacy

On behalf of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.

We are pleased to announce that Attorney Avram D. Berk of the law firm has successfully achieved recertification as a Civil Trial Specialist from the National Board of Trial Advocacy. 

The NBTA was formed out of a strong conviction that both the law profession and its clients would benefit from an organization designed specifically to create an objective set of standards, illustrating an attorney’s experience and expertise in the practice of trial law.

Avram Berk is part of a group of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumers and clients 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.

Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. Berk is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification. He is also a board certified Civil Pretrial Specialist.
