Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer

Hartford Injury Lawyer with Advanced Litigation Skills

Are you trying to narrow down the right lawyer for your personal injury case? This may seem like a daunting task considering that there are so many personal injury attorneys in the state of Connecticut. What you need is a personal injury attorney whose trial advocacy skills have been fully tested and validated. This is what you get when you turn to McCoy & McCoy. Attorney Frank McCoy, Jr. is board certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, which is a division of the American Bar Association's National Board of Legal Specialty Certification. This certification means that Mr. McCoy is a recognized specialist in the area of civil litigation. He is among less than 0.5% of registered attorneys in the state who have this certification.

Civil trial law is an area that personal injury lawyers must master, since these attorneys need to be prepared to aggressively litigate their cases in civil court, should the case require such action. Personal injury lawyers need to not only be skilled in the negotiation of settlements, but they also need to know how to file lawsuits and how to effectively present evidence and persuasive arguments before judges and juries, as many injury cases require litigation. In trials, every decision and statement your lawyer makes matters-one rookie mistake can derail your entire case. When you hire McCoy & McCoy, you can rest assured that you are working with a legal professional who has been formally recognized for his extensive knowledge and skill in civil trial advocacy.

Meeting the High Standards of Certification

In order to become a certified civil trial lawyer, Mr. McCoy had to meet rigid requirements in the areas of litigation experience, training and ethical standing. Here are some of the main qualifications lawyers must meet in order to obtain certification as a civil trial advocate, according to the National Board of Trial Advocacy:

  • Proof of good standing in the state he/she practices law
  • At least 5 years of experience in civil law
  • Proof of substantial involvement in civil litigation
  • Completion of a certain amount of litigation training through continuing legal education
  • Successful results from peer review process
  • Passage of civil litigation written exam

In addition to meeting these requirements, each attorney who applies for certification must also disclose any information concerning previous criminal charges, allegations of professional misconduct or claims of professional negligence. Lawyers who want to maintain their civil trial law certification must get recertified every five years.
