Our firm is built on an unwavering commitment to professional excellence
and high ethical standards. We are excited to announce that our partner
attorney, Juan L. Guerra, Jr., has been recognized by the National Academy
of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA) for his hard work in the criminal
defense field in Texas. His dedication to client satisfaction and extensive
experience have qualified him for inclusion in the Top 10 list for 2017.
Understanding the Selection Process for the NACDA’s Top 10 List
Selection for the NACDA Top 10 list is very limited. In fact, less than
1% of all criminal defense lawyers across the United States are included
in this list. The selection process is stringent, and involves 4 steps.
Candidates must be nominated by one of the NACDA’s in-house research
team members or by a licensed and practicing attorney. Next, candidates
will be reviewed and rated on various factors by the research committee.
After this, the top 50 candidates will be chosen by the processing committee
to advance on to the next stage, where the final 10 attorneys will be
selected by the NACDA’s Board of Governors in each state.
Candidates will be rated on the basis of 5 factors. Attorneys must:
- Devote a significant portion of their practice to criminal defense cases
- Be in private practice
- Have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the criminal defense field
- Be licensed to practice law
- Be in good standing with the state
Furthermore, candidates will be rated based on peer and client reviews.
Their case outcomes, education, trial experience, legal awards, criminal
defense teaching experience, and scholarly articles will also be considered.
Only those who display the highest level of legal experience and client
satisfaction will be selected to the Top 10 list for each state.
Attorney Juan Guerra, Jr. has received this prestigious title for his tireless
representation on behalf of the accused. His legal experience and knowledge
of federal and state laws makes him a valuable asset for those facing
criminal charges. We are excited to celebrate this accomplishment with him.
