Juan L. Guerra, Jr. Receives NACDA Top 10 Ranking for 2017

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:

  1. Devote a significant portion of their practice to criminal defense cases
  2. Be in private practice
  3. Have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the criminal defense field
  4. Be licensed to practice law
  5. 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.
