The Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys (ATAA) will be providing board certification for plaintiff attorneys and paralegals in the specialized field of truck crash litigation starting in the fall of 2017.
The Academy has developed a strict set of qualifications for board eligibility that will require extensive documented and verified experience specifically in handling truck crash cases. Attorneys and paralegals who meet this strict criteria will be eligible to take the certification examination. The certification examinations are the most rigorous examinations anywhere on the intricacies of handling truck crash cases.
The Academy’s Board certification is not yet approved by the American Bar Association, but the Academy has begun the process to seek such approval and is working towards ABA accredited status effective with the first exam given.
Board certification is intended for attorneys and paralegals who handle cases on the plaintiff side. Attorneys and paralegals who are actively engaged in the defense of truck crash cases are not eligible.
ATAA does not discriminate against any applicant for any reason including, but not limited to, race, gender, religion, age, disability, nationality, marital status, sexual orientation, military status or income status.
ATAA’s Board Certification Committee is finalizing the criteria, standards and tests for this process. This information, along with the board certification application, will be available on this website in the near future. The first board certification test is planned for the fall of 2017.
