The National Association of Distinguished Counsel is an organization devoted to finding and recognizing the very best legal representation in the country. To be selected for their annual list for membership is to be named in their "The Nation's Top One Percent" honor. We are proud to announce that Founding Attorney Gerald L. Marcus has been included for this 2015 distinction from the NADC.
According to their mission statement, NADC aims to "objectively recognize the attorneys who elevate the standards of the Bar and provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate." To ensure their membership includes only by the best counsel in the country, they employ a rigorous, multi-staged selection process.
"The Nation's Top One Percent" selection process includes:
- Selection via nomination or identification by NADC researchers
- Evaluation by NADC researchers
- Review by a "blue ribbon panel of attorneys"
- Final vetting by a judicial review board of former judges
Everything from a candidates' public profile, case results, experience, education, and disciplinary status are considered during the process. Just as the honor implies, only 1% or less of the country's lawyers are represented in the final list.
This distinction from NADC is only the latest accolade Attorney Marcus has accumulated throughout his nearly 30 year career. In both 2014 and 2015, he was elected for inclusion on the California Super Lawyers® list, where he joined only 5% of other attorneys in the State of California. He maintains active memberships in the State Bar of California, the American Trial Lawyers Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and numerous other legal bodies. He has represented nearly 10,000 injury clients since 1987 and, in that time, has recovered almost $100,000,000 on their behalf.
We congratulate Attorney Marcus on this latest honor from NADC. We are certain his unflagging leadership, acumen, and advocacy will continue to serve Southern California injury victims that need it the most.
