trial lawyer litigator awards imageThe law firm of David Oestreicher has been nominated by the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents for a 2014 Litigator Award. The awards, presented in 72 specialty practice categories, are based strictly on actual verdict and settlement dollar achievements.

Of the more than 1 million lawyers considered, only a select few (approximately 12 law firms per state) achieve the distinction. Those who are awarded are recognized as star lawyers, who have triumphed in winning million, multi-million or billion dollar cases — a feat achieved by fewer than one-percent of all lawyers.

The 2014 Litigator Awards will be announced on January 15, 2015.
