Billion Dollar Trial Lawyers ™
— Law firms eligible have achieved a law firm total of at least $1 billion in trial verdicts, arbitration awards and settlements since the inception of the law firm. If the law firm has multiple offices, the total of all offices will qualify. A class action settlement may also qualify.
To qualify for the Billion Dollar Trial Lawyers award, a named partner must submit an affirmation attesting to the fact that the law firm has reached at least $1 billion in trial verdicts, arbitration awards and settlements since the inception of the law firm and the year in which the law firm was formed. A personal injury lawyer will also review the law firm’s web site and investigate other sources. Includes Premier Lifetime Membership, directory listing and wall plaque (Brass on Rosewood with Piano Gloss Finish). One time registration fee of $4,897. No annual renewal fee!
Above The Policy™
— Lawyers eligible have settled a case (before or after verdict) with an insurance company which paid more money than the maximum insurance policy liability limit. For instance, I settled a case for $155,000 where the policy limit was $25,000. A lawyer may also qualify by showing an insurance company misrepresented the amount of insurance. For instance, I have a letter from an insurance company stating the policy limit is $100,000. I then found the same insurance company had another policy on the same car. They then claimed the polices would pay pro rata. I was able to force them to admit the available amount was the total of both polices. Includes Premier Lifetime Membership, directory listing and wall plaque (Brass on Rosewood with Piano Gloss Finish). One time registration fee of $1,200. No annual renewal fee!
Verified Personal Injury Lawyer™ Seal
— The seal verifies that the lawyer or law firm has a law practice consisting of at least 90% personal injury law. Verification is done by a personal injury lawyer and includes checking various sources. The seal assures the public that personal injury law is the main or sole focus of your practice. The seal does not indicate the attorney is certified or a specialist. All practice areas in personal injury qualify, ie. Wrongful Death; Motorcycle Accidents; Nursing Home Abuse; Defective / Dangerous Products; Medical Malpractice; etc. Eligible lawyers must not have any disciplinary actions against them noted on their profile. Includes Premier Membership, directory listing and wall plaque (Brass on Rosewood with Piano Gloss Finish). One time registration fee of $499 plus an annual review fee of $49.

Credit cards accepted for registration fee
Where a settlement contains a confidentiality clause, the attorney may provide a redacted release or settlement agreement together with an affirmation or affidavit stating that the attorney was a principal attorney involved in the settlement of the case together with a redacted copy of the letter forwarding the release to the insurance company, signed by the attorney applying to become a Premier Lifetime Member of the Million Dollar Trial Lawyers Club. Copies of settlement documents will NOT be released to anyone. As a lawyer, Philip L. Franckel, Esq., who owns Million Dollar Trial Lawyers, understands the sensitivity of these documents.
Law Firms With Multiple Attorneys
There may be more than one principal attorney in a case as long as the the principal attorneys were significantly involved in the case. If the law firm has more than one attorney, the award logo on the law firm’s web site must identify the name of the attorney for whom the award was given (does not apply to the Billion Dollar Trial Lawyers™ award). It is permissible to accomplish this by adding the attorney’s name to the title tag in the HTML code so it looks like the logo below when a website visitor hovers the mouse cursor over the award logo. This is easy to do when the logo is added to the law firm’s web site. If more than one principal attorney worked on the case and also wants an award, a 45% discount applies to each additional lawyer. Each lawyer will receive Lifetime Premier Membership with a directory listing and wall plaque (Brass on Rosewood with Piano Gloss Finish).
