Scott B. Cooper, of Schmidt Kramer, has once again been selected as a member of the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC).
NADC is an organization dedicated to honoring attorneys who adhere to the highest standards of legal excellence. Its mission is to recognize lawyers who elevate the standards of legal practice and who provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate.
Prospective NADC members are nominated by fellow attorneys, past and present clients, and current NADC members. Once prospective members are selected, NADC researchers begin thorough evaluations of each members’ legal merits.
For each prospective member, the research team reviews important factors, such as:
- Their legal and personal reputation
- Years they have been in practice
- Their level of education and training
- Their trial experience and outcomes of their cases
- Endorsements by peers and reviews by clients
- Professional awards, memberships, affiliations and other noteworthy achievements
- Their leadership in legal organizations and involvement in their community
Following the research team’s evaluation, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys reviews the team’s results. Each panel member has achieved podium status and is specially awarded the honor of selecting the final candidates for membership status as the “Nation’s Top One Percent.”
Finally, a judicial review board, led by a group of former judges, determines the final members by ensuring each prospective candidate epitomizes the ideals of the legal profession, and that their stellar reputation and exceptional performance exemplifies only the highest legal standards of excellence.
This year marks the second time Mr. Cooper has been selected for membership in the NADC “Nation’s Top One Percent.” In 2015, he was awarded his first invitation for demonstrating a high level of legal professionalism. This year, he is once again offered membership for 2016, as he has continued to promote high legal standards with unparalleled dedication.
The attorneys and staff at Schmidt Kramer would like to congratulate Mr. Cooper on receiving this commendable distinction – two years in a row. The honor is well-deserved, as Mr. Cooper continues to uphold the rights of all Pennsylvania citizens, as well as help injured victims receive the justice and financial compensation they deserve.
On behalf of the Schmidt Kramer team, we would like to once again congratulate Scott Cooper on his membership in the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel!
