The National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA) recently announced its list of the top 10 defense attorneys in each state. Out of the countless criminal defense attorneys in the state of Maine, attorney William T. Bly was chosen by the NACDA as one of the 10 best in the whole state of Maine for 2015.
NACDA's Rigid Selection Process
Lots of attorneys claim to be “the best,” or say that they're “experts” in criminal defense. Unfortunately, it's difficult to lay out a set of objective criteria that can measure how good an attorney is, especially when it comes to criminal defense. There are so many factors that go into every case, and many of them are often out of an attorney's control.
Luckily, the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA) has recognized this, as well as the need for people know who the top defense attorneys are in their area.
To satisfy these pressing needs, the NACDA created a rigid and independent selection process to objectively determine who are the best defense lawyers in each of the 50 states in the U.S.
To even be considered for the prestigious designation by the NACDA as one of the best criminal defense attorneys in a state, a lawyer needs to be nominated by either one of his or her peers in the state bar, or by one of the NACDA's research staff members. Many of those nominated, however, don't satisfy the Academy's minimum requirements.
Those who do satisfy the NACDA's minimum requirements are extensively researched by the Academy's processing committee. Factors include case outcomes, publications, peer and client reviews, formal criminal defense training, and other legal awards. Once the list of attorneys has been brought down to the top 50 in each state, the finalists are presented to the NACDA's Board of Governors, who choose the state's top 10.
