“We are proud of the objectivity and meticulousness of the selection process,” said Shannon Rich, CEO and founder of the Academy. “We know the Academy is providing the public with a much needed independent resource to help ensure just representation for individuals suffering personal injuries.”
Candidates must be licensed, in good standing with their local bar association and nominated by a licensed practicing attorney. In addition, each attorney must have achieved meaningful professional recognition and earned the respect of their clients and peers. The Academy’s Board of Governors reviews the nominations to select the final Top 10 Under 40 attorneys from each state. The rankings are independent and free from commercial influence.
“We were thrilled with the number of quality nominations received from each state, and we only expect interest to grow in the future,” said Rich.
The 2014 Top 10 Under 40 attorneys for each state can be seen at the Academy’s website, www.naopia.com.
Founded in 2013, the Academy equips highly-qualified personal injury attorneys with the most current continuing education opportunities and provides the public with the most accurate, up-to-date listings of qualified attorneys in their states.
