Choosing the right attorney can be a difficult process. How do you know if you are hiring a lawyer you can trust or someone who just talks a good game to get your money? We believe that the following list will give you a solid “apples-to-apples” perspective when comparing us with other Pittsburgh firms.

Board Certification

Managing Partner Michael V. Worgul, is certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy1  (NBTA) as an expert trial attorney in the area of Criminal Defense. Michael is one of the few attorneys in the Pittsburgh area with this certification. Why does this matter?

“A National Board of Trial Advocacy Certified Attorney has demonstrated skill and expertise in a particular field and has proven it through rigorous examination and testing by the NBTA. The NBTA, and other organizations accredited by the American Bar Association must demonstrate that lawyers certified have an enhanced level of expertise and substantial involvement in the specialty area of certification.” (NBTA)

Obtaining this certification is difficult. The successful lawyer must: 1) demonstrate actual trial experience, 2) pass a rigorous exam, and 3) provide confirmation from other attorneys, prosecutors, and judges. Unlike other un-accredited agencies2,  an attorney cannot simply pay for NBTA certification. It must be earned.

What this means for you

You have piece of mind knowing that the lawyer you have hired is highly capable in the area of criminal defense.

NBTA is an approved agency by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Civil Trial and Criminal Trial approved December 1998, last re-accredited for 5 years June 1, 2014 – June 1, 2019 (Civil and Criminal).

Experienced Trial Lawyers

No attorney joins the team at Worgul Law Firm without first taking significant jury trials to verdict. Simply put, if an attorney does not take jury trials to verdict, they are not a trial attorney. Our experience is obvious at initial consultation, through trial preparation, during final arguments, and beyond.

What this means for you

When your freedom is at stake, you want to know that your lawyer is willing to take a case to trial.
