Fred Zinober has recently been Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (“NBTA”) in Civil Trial Law. An attorney who is Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy Certified Attorney has demonstrated skill and expertise in a particular field and has proven it through rigorous examination and testing by the NBTA. The NBTA, and other organizations accredited by the American Bar Association must demonstrate that lawyers certified have an enhanced level of expertise and substantial involvement in the specialty area of certification. The standards are designed to enable the NBTA to evaluate thoroughly the objectives, standards and procedures of attorneys and to facilitate public access to appropriate legal services.
Similar to the medical profession in which the body of knowledge is so large that it’s impossible for one doctor to remain current in all specialty areas, the body of law has grown so large and complex that attorneys can no longer be all things to all people. Thus, Board Certification can provide reassurance to clients that the attorney that is representing him, her, or it has satisfied the rigorous standards necessary to achieve that status.
It should be noted that Mr. Zinober has also been Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Florida Bar since 2006, and previously was Board Certified in Criminal Trial Law by the Florida Bar from 1993-2003
