The American Society of Legal Advocates (ASLA) is an invitation-only organization that is limited to less than 2% of all licensed lawyers in the United States, according to the group’s website. ALSA focuses on aggregating a select pool of attorneys from various practice areas, creating a valuable resource that can serve both its members and the general public. Attorneys from each state were chosen. Those admitted into the exclusive organization were selected by a team of lawyers who spent months researching tens out thousands of potential candidates throughout the nation.
In selecting its member attorneys, ASLA chooses up to 100 lawyers (and 40 lawyers under the age of 40) per state for every practice area or specialty that is designated for that state. Specialties are considered vary on a state-by-state basis, according to the group’s website. Potential candidates can be nominated by others for consideration, though they cannot be self-nominated.
Various factors are used in evaluating whether or not an attorney qualifies for an invitation to ASLA. These can include educational achievements, legal accomplishments, community involvement, and leadership activity (such as in bar associations and other professional groups). ASLA’s selection team also reviews information about the attorneys that is publicly available, such as their websites, reviews by clients and information about settlement and verdict. In addition to providing directories of top-tier attorneys (through its Top 100 Lawyers and 40 Lawyers Under 40 listings), ASLA notes that it also gives members the opportunity to network, make referrals, engage in events and services sponsored by ASLA and more.
