)-- Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania personal injury law firm Scartelli Olszewski, P.C. is pleased to announce that Founder and President Melissa A. Scartelli has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). She has been a NBTA member in good standing since 2011.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are certified by NBTA, and Scartelli is a member of a select few who have taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
The NBTA was formed out of a strong conviction that both the legal profession and its clients would benefit from an organization designed specifically to create an objective set of standards illustrating an attorney's experience and expertise in the practice of trial law.
The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board-certified attorneys must successfully complete include: demonstration of substantial trial experience, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency, attendance of continuing legal education courses and proof of good standing.
The founder and president of Scartelli Olszewski, P.C., Scartelli has represented seriously injured people in the state and federal courts of Pennsylvania for more than 25 years. Her areas of practice include automobile accidents, auto defects, construction and workplace accidents, defective drugs and medical devices, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, product liability, and more.
Scartelli is one of only a few female Pennsylvania attorneys to achieve the exclusive Civil Trial Advocate certification and is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. One of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the U.S., the forum limits its membership to those attorneys who have won million- and multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of plaintiffs.
