Graydon Attorney Achieves Board Certification in Family Trial Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy
Graydon is pleased to announce on behalf of The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) that William D. Tingley has successfully achieved Board Certification as a Family Law advocate. The NBTA was formed out of a strong conviction that both the law 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.
William D. Tingley joins a growing number of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel.
The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board certified attorneys must successfully complete includes: demonstration of substantial trial experience, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency, attendance of continuing legal education courses, submission of legal writing documents, proof of good standing and passing of an examination.
Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve. Board certifications are the only distinctions awarded by non-profit organizations. The NBTA as well as all board certifying organizations are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.
William D. Tingley earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Asbury University. He is a graduate of Capital University Law School. Mr. Tingley is licensed to practice in Kentucky. He has been involved in hundreds of Family Law hearings and trials, as well as hundreds of criminal prosecutions as a former Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney. In addition, he is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyer. He has published and lectured extensively in the area of Family Law.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. Tingley is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
