Recently, the Nevada Justice Association has formed a Board of Personal Injury Specialization. Our team at Shook & Stone is pleased to announce that Attorney John B. Shook has passed the testing process and is now part of the inaugural class of personal injury specialists! In this position, Mr. Shook will be responsible for ensuring that various duties are completed. In addition, he will be required to abide by a strict recertification timeline. These new responsibilities will allow Mr. Shook to continue growing as a successful personal injury lawyer. He is excited to accept the new position and believes this will allow him to become even more responsive and helpful for his clients.
How This Specialization Can Help Clients
According to the Nevada Justice Association, only personal injury lawyers who demonstrate the following are considered and certified by the new board:
- Superior knowledge
- Ample amounts of skill
- Superior integrity
- Superior professionalism
- High degree of competence
In addition, attorneys must be able to prove that they have practiced in the area of personal injury for no less than seven consecutive years, three of which must have been in the state of Nevada. Each lawyer who is considered must also be in good standing with the State Bar of Nevada.
These strict guidelines and responsibilities allow the Nevada Justice Association to ensure that only top-tier personal injury attorneys who uphold the standards of professional conduct gain access to such a specialized group. As a result, accident victims and their families can rest easier knowing the lawyers with this certification, including Mr. Shook, are capable of guiding them through a streamlined legal process while practicing compassionate and relentless legal representation.
