Applicants must be current members of a governing bar association and shall possess an exemplary ethics record. Any disbarment or suspension, from the practice of law, even if reinstated, is a basis for disqualification.
2. TRIAL BENCHMARKS
Applicants must certify that they have achieved certain trial benchmarks as principal counsel.
“Principal Counsel” is a lawyer who is, or was primarily in charge of and responsible for the preparation, management, and trial of an individual case. Said term shall not be confined to lead counsel (“first chair”), but may extend to a team of lawyers working as co-principal counsel on the case with different responsibilities. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, the term does not include a lawyer that simply worked on one aspect of the case, or referred a case.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”top”][vc_column][vc_column_text]
