Eric S. Block Wins Prestigious 2014 Litigator Award

On January 16th 2015 the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents announced that the Offices of Eric S. Block received the Prestigious 2014 Litigator Award ™

A press release issued by the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents stated that “Having been conferred this prestigious National Award, the firm ranks among the Top 1% of all lawyers for: Personal Injury, Catastrophic Injury and Auto Accident Litigation.”

Friends, while I am happy to share more detail about this prestigious Award, the 1% ranking is all that should matter to you. I did not “self-nominate” for this Award, and it is based entirely on the ranking of personal injury practices as calculated by the Board of Regents. The only criteria which are taken into consideration are qualifying verdicts, settlements and  an exemplary record with all State and Federal Judicial Agencies. This is a rigorous process which is openly judged and should be seriously considered in your choice of attorney.

And let me share, those results were not obtained by my amassing a large caseload and then running a settlement factory. No! Most of those results were obtained in the Court Room as I refused to settle my client’s cases for my benefit. What this Award demonstrates is that results matter!

A few details from the Award are as follows:

  • The Award is for extraordinary achievement within the field(s) of Personal Injury, Catastrophic Injury and Auto Accident Litigation.
  • This “unrivaled annual honor recognizes trial lawyers {firms} who have attained extraordinary litigation achievement within one or more of 72 pre-defined “Practice Specialty” categories. Based strictly on “Verdict and/or Settlement” dollar achievement rather than peer popularity.”
  • The Litigator Awards “are perhaps the most rigorous and openly judged trial law rating. Simply being nominated is to be set among the elite of the profession. Those awarded are generally considered among the finest trial lawyers in the nation.”

A few points regarding eligibility:

Nominees must prove achievement of litigation “Performance Benchmarks” that includes not less than:

  • Two verified “Verdicts or Settlements” of at-least $1 Million Dollars in any one Practice Specialty category within the preceding 5 year period prior to Nomination* , or
  • One verified “Verdict or Settlement” of at-least $5 Million Dollars in any one Practice Specialty category within the preceding 10 year period prior to Nomination**, or
  • One verified “Verdict or Settlement” of at-least $10 Million Dollars in any one Practice Specialty category within the preceding 20 year period prior to Nomination.

Finally, as stated by the Regents “It is a feat achieved by fewer than 1% of all Lawyers, and truly a testament to each Award Recipient’s remarkable performance relative to peers.  Of the nearly 1.1 Million lawyers considered, only a select few per State or DMA, will achieve the distinction of being awarded annually in any given Practice Specialty*.

Furthermore, “Winning a 2014 Litigator Award is a “Powerful Endorsement” of superior litigation achievement that provides discerning clientele {as well as referring professionals} with a strong reason to trust their case with an Award Recipient. Moreover, it offers a testament to their remarkable performance relative to peers.” Do you need a Personal Injury Attorney?  My results and the recognition afforded to me by this Award speak for themselves. I will never settle your case for my benefit and I only take  clients with serious injuries. 

*Firms with 10 Lawyers or less: The time period shall be “within the preceding 10 year period prior to Nomination”
**Firms with 10 Lawyers or less: The time period shall be “within the preceding 15 year period prior to Nomination.”
