Attorney James Vickaryous, who is President of the Seminole County Bar Association and Treasurer of the Central Florida Trial Lawyers Association, has been selected by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel for its “Nation’s Top One Percent” in attorneys recognition.
Selection follows a rigorous, multistage selection process:The National Association of Distinguished Counsel is an organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. The mission of the NADC is to objectively recognize the attorneys who elevate the standards of the Bar and provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate. Members are vetted by a research team, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys, and a judicial review board.
Candidates must be nominated and then are vetted by association researchers based on public profiles, client reviews and courts records, firm profile and reputation, years of practice, education and training, trial experience, case outcomes, peer endorsements, professional awards and memberships, leadership in legal organizations and community involvement.
If judged to be worthy based on these criteria, nominees are reviewed again by a panel of attorneys and then by a judicial review board that includes a group of former judges. As a successful candidate, Vickaryous is now recognized nationally as a member of “The Nation’s Top One Percent.”
“By virtue of the incredible selectivity of our research process, only the elite few are invited to join the ranks of the NADC. Specifically, less than 1% of practicing attorneys in the United States are afforded the opportunity to be named ‘Nation’s Top Attorneys’. The recipients of this prestigious award have demonstrated the highest ideals of the legal profession.”
