Stanziano tabbed one of state’s top trial lawyers

Somerset —

One local member of the legal community received a very exclusive distinction — gaining membership into “The National Trial Lawyers Top 100” fold.
Mark Stanziano was chosen for The National Trial Lawyers organization Top 100 for Kentucky, a prestigious group of some of the top attorneys in the Commonwealth. It’s part of a larger directory recognizing the best of the best from all over the United States.
“It’s membership by invitation only,” said Stanziano, of Stanziano & Stanziano, PSC. “You have to be nominated for it by your peers.”
The National Trial Lawyers bills themselves on their website (www.thenationaltriallawyers.org) as “a professional organization composed of the premier trial lawyers from across the country who exemplify superior qualifications as civil plaintiff or criminal defense trial lawyers. This national organization provides networking opportunities, advocacy training, and the highest quality educational programs for trial lawyers.”
Once a candidate is nominated by other lawyers from his or her state, the organization does research into the attorney’s background and the trials they’ve been a part of. If selected, the candidate is sent an invitation by the National Trial Lawyers. New members are inducted annually.
“It’s a national thing; they do it for each state,” said Stanziano. “The idea that they don’t just send you a letter and say, ‘Hey, join up,’ they do the work first and then send the invitation ... It’s real nice.”
Stanziano received notice of the selection in mid-March, and it officially came through in April. He anticipates it to be published in the organization’s periodical later this year.
“I looked through the list,” he said. “There were some pretty good lawyers from Kentucky, so it was pretty cool (to be a part of the list).”
Stanziano said he hopes that his career as a whole was the key to his nomination, rather than being known for one or two particular cases, noting that being recognized for the body of work would “mean more to” him.
