HARRISBURG, PA -The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) is pleased to announce that Edward E. (Ted) Knauss, IV of the law firm, Metzger Wickersham Knauss & Erb, P.C. has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial 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.
Attorney Knauss is part of 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 and proof of good standing.
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.
Attorney Knauss earned his undergraduate degree with honors from Harvard University. He is a graduate of Penn State Dickinson School of Law. Mr. Knauss is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania. He is a member of The Million Dollar Advocates Forum and is also certified as a Workers’ Compensation Specialist as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
