Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) October 03, 2014
Metzger Wickersham law firm is proud to announce that Edward E. Knauss, IV has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial advocate through the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Mr. Knauss is a member of a very select group of trial attorneys that have taken the time to complete a rigorous application process and prove competence in their specialty area by earning board certification.
Board certification is one of the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honors an attorney can achieve. The NBTA, as well as all board certifying organizations, are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney. 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.
Attorney Knauss has been practicing law in Pennsylvania for 40 years. He earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and his law degree from Dickinson School of Law of the Pennsylvania State University. Mr. Knauss has extensive experience in all stages of civil litigation and has been a NBTA member in good standing for 20 years.
In addition to his board certification in civil trial law, Knauss is certified as a specialist in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Law Section as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. He is one of very few attorneys in the entire state of Pennsylvania to be certified as a specialist in both workers’ compensation and civil trial law.
The National Board of Trial Advocacy 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. Board certification provides consumers with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel. For more information, please visit http://www.nblsc.us.
