Attorney Christopher F. Gibbs, personal injury attorney and founder of The Gibbs Law Firm, has been chosen as one of 2021’s “Top 40 Under 40” by The National Trial Lawyers organization.
The National Trial Lawyers is an invitation-only organization composed of the premier trial lawyers from each state or region who meet stringent qualifications as civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense trial lawyers. Their “Top 40 Under 40” list is made of the current top trial lawyers from each state who are under the age of 40.
Only the top 100 trial lawyers from each state – or highly-populated regions of certain states – who are actively practicing in civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense law, are eligible for invitation. Invitees to the NTL organization must demonstrate superior qualifications, leadership skills, and trial results as legal professionals. The selection process for this elite honor is based upon a multi-phase process using uniformly applied criteria, including peer nominations combined with third-party research results. Attorneys are reevaluated annually to determine whether their activities and accomplishments qualify them for continued membership.
The criteria used in the evaluation process include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Reputation among peers, the judiciary, and the public
- The previous year’s achievements, settlements and verdicts as a trial lawyer
- Board Certification as a trial lawyer or trial attorney
- Nominations received from leading trial lawyers, current members and/or our executive committee members
Leadership and membership within other national and state trial lawyer organizations
- Rankings and ratings of the attorney by established organizations
