Those awarded join an exclusive fraternity of Super-Star Lawyers who have won Million, Multi-Million and/or Billion Dollar cases – a feat achieved by fewer than 1% of all lawyers. Of the nearly 1.1 Million lawyers considered, only a select few (about 12 Law Firms) per State or DMA, will achieve the distinction of being awarded each year in any given Practice Specialty.

NBTA Board Certified: You have probably heard that doctors can be “Board-certified” in their fields of specialty. Lawyers have a certification process as well, although it is not a requirement to practice law. A Board Certified Attorney with the National Board of Trial Advocacy must have an enhanced level of expertise and substantial involvement in the specialty area of certification. The NBTA certifies Civil Trial Advocates through a rigorous examination on ethics and professional responsibility, the rules of evidence, the rules of civil procedure, and trial advocacy. Individuals who pass the examination then must present a legal writing sample, which must be reviewed by experts. The applicant is then subjected to a peer review, which includes recommendations of judges before whom the applicant has recently tried civil cases. Only after passing this gauntlet is a trial lawyer allowed to be “certified” as a civil trial specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. As of January, 2017, John Medler is one of the elite group of attorneys certified by the NBTA. Don’t you want the lawyer handling your case to be Board Certified?

"I was nervous meeting with a personal injury lawyer because I did not know what to expect. But once I met with John for the first time, I immediately felt at ease talking with him about my situation. John took the time to really listen, learn about me and discuss the steps. I truly feel he always had my best interest at heart. Throughout the entire process John consistently kept me in the loop, and was available to speak or meet with me whenever needed. John was able to quickly settle my case. I very highly recommend him as a personal injury lawyer."

"I slipped and fell in a convenience store. The pain in my back was unbearable. I could not get anyone at the store to take responsibility. The Medler Law Firm took my case. Before long, we had an excellent settlement. My husband who worked as a security guard for a defense contractor also had a claim against his employer because they were not paying him the wages he was due. John Medler took the case and filed a class action on behalf of all the security guards at the plant and got the workers the wages that were due. I am very happy to recommend The Medler Law Firm for anyone else who has a claim like ours"

"My son and I were driving down the highway in Illinois when our car hit a deer in the middle of the road. While our car was disabled, the driver of a tractor-trailer smashed into our vehicle from behind. John Medler was able to prove that the truck driver had violated hours-of-service regulations and was driving while fatigued. John's expertise and knowledge in this area enabled us to get an excellent settlement to compensate for injuries and loss of wages. I would definitely recommend The Medler Law Firm to anyone."
