● By Lev
The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) recently announced that Tim Rayne of the law firm of MacElree Harvey, Ltd., has achieved board certification as a civil trial advocate.
Rayne joins a growing number of trial attorneys who have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by completing a rigorous application process.
The screening of credentials that all NBTA board-certified attorneys must 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.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board-certified.
Tim Rayne earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Delaware and is a graduate of Widener University School of Law. In addition, he has a master’s degree in trial advocacy from the Temple University Beasley School of Law.
