Mike Moline has been recertified as a civil trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). Mike has been an NBTA member in good standing for five years. He is licensed to practice in Minnesota and Wisconsin. He has been involved in more than 50 trials and 500 binding arbitrations and appraisals.
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. Mike is part 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 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. Only about three percent of American lawyers are board certified.
