Online PR News – 22-June-2012 – Sherman Oaks, California – Preeminent personal injury attorney David Drexler has attained the distinction of National Board Certification by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys as a Trial Attorney Specialist in the area of legal malpractice, earning the honor of the title of Diplomate, a title reserved for only a small number of American lawyers.
June 7, 2012, Los Angeles, CA – The American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys (ABPLA) has named David Drexler, a renowned personal injury attorney at the Los Angeles-based Law Offices of David Drexler, a Board Certified Diplomate. The ABPLA distinction of “Board Certified” is a crowning achievement of any legal career because it is one that can be claimed by only a very small but elite number of attorneys in the United States.
According to ABPLA First Vice President Tom Sartwelle, Diplomates earn the title of “Board Certified” by proof of many years of devotion and dedication to a legal specialty. “David Drexler is an extremely successful trial attorney in the highly specialized area of legal malpractice,” stated Sartwelle. “He has shown proof of competency in practice as a legal malpractice attorney and he has proven that competency through written peer reviewed testing. This is the sort of competency that the American public should expect from attorney specialists.”
This latest board certification marks Drexler’s second, having already earned his National Board Certification as a Trial Attorney Specialist in medical malpractice cases. Now a double-boarded Diplomate, Drexler serves on the ABPLA Board of Directors as California Chair. His firm has recovered well over $150,000,000 on behalf of his clients, is a member of the CAALA, the AAJ, and the CAOC and has been named “a SuperLawyer” every year since 1998, the first year the honor was bestowed. Nominated as “California Trial Attorney of the Year”, Drexler has been described by LA Direct Magazine as “a big city attorney with small town values.”
“There are so many thousands of lawyers practicing in the State of California,” said Drexler. “How can the public differentiate the cream of the crop, so to speak, without these types of certifications and designations? It’s always been vital to me to seize these opportunities to better illustrate to the public the difference between attorneys who have never seen the inside of a courtroom and a trial attorney like myself who possesses the experience and know how to win difficult malpractice cases.”
While it is estimated that 80 to 90% of physicians practicing medicine in the United States are board certified, less than 3% of private practice attorneys are board certified by a state or national certifying body.
The Law Offices of David Drexler specializes in medical and legal malpractice, vehicle accidents, catastrophic injuries as well as general personal injury liability cases such as assault and battery, slip and fall, dog bites and product liability. The firm has further distinguished itself with its Client for Life approach to client service.
