One of our founding attorneys, Brandon Henderson, was recently accepted into the National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC), an organization dedicated to promoting the premier standards of legal excellence. The goal of the group is to objectively recognize the attorneys who raise the standards of the Bar and provide a standard for other aspiring lawyers to emulate.
Fewer than 1% of practicing attorneys in the United States are members of the “Nation’s Top Attorneys.” Those who are skilled enough to count themselves a member have demonstrated they uphold the high ideals of practicing law.
In order to be considered, candidates must either be nominated by a fellow attorney, former clients, or the NADC in-house research team. Once candidates are identified, they undergo a lengthy vetting process. Researchers from the NADC use sources from publicly available avenues, such as the attorney’s website, public profiles, client reviews, and case results, to determine how the lawyer rates. They specifically look at the firm profile and reputation, the attorney’s education, trial experience, peer endorsements, professional awards, professional memberships, community involvement, and other noteworthy achievements.
Next, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys studies the results provided by the research team. These lawyers are highly qualified in their own right and are imbued with the perspective and knowledge to select the “Nation’s Top Attorneys.” They will make careful determinations regarding who among their peers possess the background, accomplishments, and ability to serve as a leading example to other lawyers. They create a list of candidates whom they think are truly elite.
Last, a judicial review board made up of former judges evaluates Henderson, Mokhtari & Weatherly this list. They examine the candidates to ensure all who qualify epitomize the ideals of the legal profession. Those attorneys whose exceptional reputation and performance exemplify the finest standards are invited to be members of the NADC.
Attorney Henderson is a recipient of this distinguished award and membership. Because of his efforts and legal skill, as well as his admirable character and virtue in practicing, he was recognized as one of the “Nation’s Top Attorneys.”
