Attorney David Rapoport Joins Board of Directors of National Board of Legal Specialty Certification
July 26, 2009
At the summer convention of the American Association for Justice, attorney David Rapoport, founding partner of Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. a plaintiff personal injury law firm in Chicago, was voted onto the Board of Directors of the The National Board of Legal Specialty Certification (NBLSC). Mr. Rapoport served as the Illinois state coordinator for the organization prior to joining the Board of Directors.
The National Board of Legal Specialty Certification is a nonprofit organization accredited by the American Bar Association whose responsibility is to certify that attorneys are specially qualified in areas in which they seek to practice. In order to be certified, one must meet rigorous experience requirements, ethical requirements, and demonstrate, via testing, one’s competence. Unlike many organizations, one does not simply pay a fee to join. Attorneys with NBLSC certification have proven competency in their field through specialized examinations and rigorous criteria for necessary experience and ethical ratings. Failure in any of these areas will prevent certification.
David Rapoport is proud to have been selected to join his colleagues on the Board, and is enthusiastic to begin his active participation to further advance the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification in its mission to promote excellence in legal advocacy through a national program certifying specialists predicated on high standards of demonstrated competence and integrity.
