Above The Policy™ — Lifetime Achievement Award honors lawyers who obtained more money than the insurance policy limit or where a lawyer proved an insurance company was hiding insurance coverage.
This award recognizes the negotiation and investigation abilities of the lawyer. Only a very small number of lawyers have obtained money above the insurance policy limit or caught an insurance company hiding insurance coverage.
Verified Personal Injury Lawyer™ — Look for the seal which indicates the lawyer's practice consists of at least 90% personal injury law and does not have any disciplinary actions listed (reviewed annually).
Personal Injury is a broad category in which a lawyer seeks compensation for someone injured because of another person's or company's negligence. See a list of sub-fields or sub-specialties within personal injury.
Look for one of the gold badges on a lawyer's website which verifies that the lawyer is entitled to the privileged lifetime membership in the exclusive Million Dollar Trial Lawyers Association™.
While no award, rating or even being a million dollar lawyer should be the sole reason to retain a lawyer, the Million Dollar Trial Lawyers™ awards can be one of the factors you take into consideration when choosing an attorney. All of the Million Dollar Trial Lawyers™ awards represent a significant achievement that any million dollar attorney can be proud of.
