Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) is pleased to announce that attorney Will Techmeier of the Cochran Firm Wisconsin LLP has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial advocate.
Mr. Techmeier has been a NBTA member in good standing for over 20 years.
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.
Mr. Techmeier, who focuses his practice in the area of personal injury and wrongful death litigation, is part a growing number of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application and examination process and providing the consumer 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:
- Written Examination
- Demonstration of substantial trial experience
- Submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency
- Attendance of continuing legal education courses
- 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 an attorney.
Mr. Techmeier earned his undergraduate degree from St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. He is a graduate of Marquette University Law School.
Mr. Techmeier is licensed to practice in Wisconsin state courts as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin, Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and U.S. Supreme Court.
He has been AV-rated by Martindale Hubbell, recognized by Milwaukee Magazine as one of the area’s top personal-injury lawyers and selected by Super Lawyers peer-rating service since 2006 as one of the top lawyers in Milwaukee. He is an active member of several legal organizations, including the Wisconsin Association for Justice.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. Techmeier is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
