    Personal Injury Attorneys

    Congratulations to the 2016 Recipients to the

    National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys


    WASHINGTON, DC – The National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys (NAOPIA) recently published

    its list of nationally ranked personal injury attorneys. The NAOPIA recognizes the Top personal injury

    attorneys in each state with the intent of helping consumers select well-qualified professionals when legal

    representation is needed.

    “We are proud of the objectivity and meticulousness of our selection process,” said Pamela Farmer,

    Executive Director of the National Academy. “We know the NAOPIA is providing the public with a much

    needed independent resource to help ensure just representation for individuals needing a good personal

    injury attorney.”

    Candidates must be licensed, in good standing with their local bar association and nominated by either a

    licensed practicing attorney or one of our in-house staff researchers. In addition, each attorney must have

    achieved meaningful professional recognition and earned the respect of their clients and peers. In the final

    stage of the NAOPIA’s 4 step selection process, the Board of Governors reviews the finalists and selects the

    official Award Recipients from each state. The rankings are independent and free from commercial


    “We were thrilled with the number of quality nominations received from each state, and are very proud of

    all the attorneys that made our list,” said Farmer.

    Founded in 2013, the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys equips highly-qualified personal

    injury attorneys with the most current continuing education opportunities and provides the public with the

    most accurate, up-to-date listings of qualified attorneys in their states. For more information about NAOPIA,
