Attorney Derrick Connell Honored as Member of Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel

Share Article

After an intensive vetting process conducted by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel, the Morgan & Morgan personal injury attorney received the honor as a result of his commitment to the highest standards of professional excellence in working with clients and their families.

At the end of the day, though, Connell’s skill as a litigator and compassion for his clients are what separates him from the pack.

Morgan & Morgan is proud to announce that Melbourne attorney Derrick Connell has been named to the 2015 list of the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC).

For Connell, all awards in recognition of the service he provides to his clients are meaningful, especially when it’s other attorneys doing the selecting.

“I find all honors to be significant,” Connell said. “Anytime you can be recognized by a group for the work done in representing clients, it is a great honor. I find it particularly significant when groups made up of distinguished attorneys bestow honors and awards.”

The NADC is an organization that aims to promote the highest standards of excellence within the legal profession. Its mission, the group’s website says, is to objectively select the attorneys who go above and beyond the standards set by the Bar while serving as an example for others in the legal field.

Attorneys given the “Nation’s Top One Percent” distinction are first thoroughly vetted by the NADC’s research team. Then, a panel of blue-ribbon attorneys with podium status affiliated with independently neutral organizations selects the finalists, who then need approval from a judicial review board to show they’ve consistently exhibited virtue in the practice of law. Because of the intensive nature of this process, only the top one percent of attorneys in the United States are awarded membership in the NADC.

Looking back on his career, especially in recent years, Connell has seen what can happen when one is willing to start from bottom and work his way up.

“It has been a crazy journey over the last five years,” Connell said. “I was an associate, a partner, a solo practitioner and now part of the greatest plaintiff’s firm in the country.”

At the end of the day, though, Connell’s skill as a litigator and compassion for his clients are what separates him from the pack.

“I am fortunate to have been able to represent so many wonderful people and obtain such great results for those clients.”
