The driving purpose of the National Board certification program is to better the quality of trial advocacy and help those in need of legal assistance to find experienced and highly qualified trial lawyers. I’m very honored by this distinction.
Petersburg, VA (PRWEB) December 12, 2011
Petersburg personal injury attorney Charles H. Cuthbert Jr. of Cuthbert Law Offices has received certification in civil litigation from the American Bar Association-accredited National Board of Legal Specialty Certification.
Cuthbert earned the distinction by going through a rigorous screening process that evaluates applicants based on their enhanced level of skill and expertise in trial advocacy and their demonstrated integrity and dedication to the interest of clients.
Additionally, to become a National Board-certified civil litigator, applicants must pass a written examination that tests their proficiency, knowledge and experience in civil law.
Less than 4 percent of all practicing lawyers in the U.S. are certified by an ABA-accredited or state-sponsored certification board, according to the NBLSC, which is an outgrowth of the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
“The driving purpose of the National Board certification program is to better the quality of trial advocacy and help those in need of legal assistance to find experienced and highly qualified trial lawyers,” Cuthbert said. “I’m very honored by this distinction.”
Cuthbert is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Virginia School of Law. He focuses his practice on representing victims of motor vehicle accidents and medical malpractice in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits at both the trial and appellate levels. He also practices in the area of Social Security disability law.
He is licensed to practice law in Virginia and North Carolina as well as the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.
The website for Cuthbert Law Offices features a list of several cases handled by the Virginia personal injury firm that have resulted in published and unpublished decisions, including the 1999 case of Pulliam v. Coastal Emergency Services, 257 Va. 1, 509 S.E.2d 307, which resulted in a $2.045 million verdict, plus interest – the largest verdict ever obtained in Petersburg Circuit Court.
