Standards of Acceptance:
“The standards for acceptance to ABCL include successful major felony trial experience and exceptional recommendations from distinguished jurists and current Fellows attesting to each of the candidate’s high ethics as well as their litigation skills in the area of criminal defense. Fellows meet periodically to exchange ideas through informal discussions in a professional and confidential atmosphere.

American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys

“The American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys, organized in 1972, is a national organization comprised of leading trial advocates in the area of professional negligence law. It is the only organization accredited by the American Bar Association to identify and board certify attorneys in the areas of medical malpractice and legal malpractice. Board Certification is restricted to those practicing attorneys who, because of their recognized ability in the area of professional negligence law, and their qualifications consistent with ABPLA standards, merit particular recognition as specialists in these areas of practice.

ABPLA recognizes that the public needs help navigating the confusing waters of attorney selection and needs some method by which they can identify malpractice attorneys with superior knowledge and expertise to handle this highly technical litigation. Through meticulous screening of applicants and administration of examinations in their particular areas of malpractice litigation, the ABPLA identifies highly qualified lawyers, vetted by objective measures, which the public can rely upon to be among the best malpractice attorneys in the country.”

Qualification Criteria:
“To become Board Certified as a professional negligence attorney by ABPLA, malpractice lawyers are evaluated by five objective measures: Experience, Ethics, Education, Examination, Excellence.

Any candidate for Board Certification must be viewed by the board as having met ABPLA’s high standards in each of these five key areas before the attorney can be Board Certified.

Experience – To qualify to be a Board Certified malpractice attorney a lawyer must have extensive experience in the area of professional negligence, requiring that a significant portion of his or her practice be devoted to this area of the law. Additionally, each applicant must meet minimum requirements for experience in trial, mediation, arbitration and discovery in cases specifically devoted to professional liability.

Ethics – Each Board Certified professional negligence attorney must be a current bar member in good standing and must immediately report any disciplinary action to the board.

Education – Board Certification requires the attorney to meet ABPLA’s minimum standards for continuing legal education, staying current in the area of professional liability litigation, as well as meeting all continuing legal education requirements of the attorney’s state bar association.

Examination – To become Board Certified, each lawyer must pass an examination administered by ABPLA to demonstrate competency in the area of professional malpractice litigation.

Excellence – Each attorney must supply references by no less than three judges and three attorneys familiar with his or her practice and attesting that the attorney is substantially involved and highly competent in professional negligence cases.”

American Society of Tax Problem Solvers

“The American Society of Tax Problem Solvers matches troubled taxpayers with local members who are able to represent them to the IRS.

ASTPS has members across the country who are dedicated to helping taxpayers get back on track.”

“The Certified Tax Resolution Specialist designation is awarded to individuals who have met the educational, experience, and examination requirements prescribed by ASTPS. The CTRS designation is restricted to Enrolled Agent, CPA or Attorney ASTPS Members in good standing, who has proven expertise to resolve a wide range of tax problems. The services a CTRS provides to individuals and businesses include securing Offers In Compromise, Installment Agreements, Penalty Abatement, Innocent Spouse Relief, Release of Liens or Levies, Non-Filer issues and many others. Tax problem resolution is a unique area of professional practice that addresses a problem that affects a tremendous number of American citizens and residents.

Practice opportunities abound for a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist in all areas of the country and are growing. The reason is simple: Congress has ordered the IRS to return to their primary function; the collection of taxes. The new Commissioner was appointed for his expertise in this area. The federal government is funding military actions on several fronts, a war on terror, and homeland security. At the same time, tax revenues they enjoyed during the dot-com boom have evaporated now that reality has imposed on the securities markets.

The Certified Tax Resolution Specialist designation allows taxpayers to identify experts in tax problem resolution. The ASTPS Board of Regents administers the Certification Program. The Board of Regents is the final authority in making decisions related to the Certification Program. The Certified Tax Resolution Specialist (CTRS) designation is only awarded to Enrolled Agents, CPAs, and Attorneys who meet the requirements.”
