We are pleased to announce that attorney Eric Romano has successfully achieved recertification as a board-certified criminal trial attorney. Certification of trial advocates is administered by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). The NBTA was formed out of a firm conviction that both the law profession and its clients would benefit from an organization designed specifically to create an objective set of standards illustrating an attorney’s experience and expertise in the practice of trial law.
Mr. Romano is part of a growing number of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel.
The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board-certified attorneys must successfully complete includes:
- a demonstration of substantial trial experience
- submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency
- attendance of continuing legal education courses
- proof of good standing.
Only Non-Profit distinction
Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve. Board certifications are the only distinction awarded by non-profit organizations. The NBTA as well as all board-certifying organizations are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.
Romano earned his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Florida State University. He is a graduate of Stetson University College of Law. Mr. Romano is licensed to practice in Florida and is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. He is the past president of the Florida Justice Association and is a Life Member of both the National Association of Defense Lawyers and the Florida Association of Defense Lawyers.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. Romano is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
