Attorney Susan Ellis Wild Achieves Recertification as Board-Certified Civil Trial Law Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy
Attorney Susan Ellis Wild has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. She is recognized as a lawyer who has demonstrated the special knowledge, skills and proficiency to be properly identified as a “Board Certified Advocate.”
Susan is part of a growing number of trial attorneys who 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. Approximately3% of American lawyers are board certified, and Susan is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
Attorney Wild has practiced law in the Lehigh Valley since 1988. She is a 1982 honors graduate of the George Washington University Law School, and practiced law in the D.C. area for 6 years before moving her practice to the Lehigh Valley. Susan has handled hundreds of cases to verdict, settlement or dismissal. Her practice is concentrated in multiple areas of civil litigation, including the defense of health care practitioners and hospitals, and the representation of municipalities and public officials in all forms of litigation matters, including personal injury defense, civil rights claims, and employment matters.
