The National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys, established in 2013, is a professional organization championing those who fight for the rights of the accused. By equipping highly-qualified criminal defense attorneys with the most current continuing education opportunities and providing the public with the most accurate, up-to-date listings of top ranked attorneys in their states, the NACDA helps ensure quality representation for individuals facing charges.
Cases involving criminal charges require competent, specialized attorneys educated with the most up-to-date knowledge of the judicial system. Our mission at the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys is to provide advanced educational opportunities that enable criminal defense attorneys to afford their clients the best representation possible.
National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA) is not a lawyer referral service. National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys makes no claim that any attorney is more or less equipped to competently and ethically represent any given client. Any attorney who has received this award must maintain ethical representations as to their qualifications in their own right. Similarly, clients and prospective clients seeking the services of an attorney should conduct their own inquiries in selecting an attorney who is suited to represent them in any given matter. The decision to choose or trust an attorney should not rely on an attorney’s recognition by National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys. National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys is an independent organization which, in selecting its members, is ultimately crafting an opinion, and makes no representations as to the basis of any given fact concerning an attorney’s qualifications.
