Boyce Attorney Tom Welk Recertified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy
The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) has recertified Boyce Attorney Tom Welk as a civil trial law and civil pretrial practice advocate, making this year his twentieth year of certification.
This well-deserved award comes as a result of Welk’s forty years of trial and appellate experience in hundreds of complex civil and administrative law litigation matters representing individuals and small and national companies. Members of the NBTA must complete a rigorous application process that includes a 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. Recertification must be approved every five years. The NBTA estimates that only three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and only eleven lawyers are certified in civil trial advocacy in South Dakota, making Welk a member of very select group. Board certification is one of the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honors that any attorney can receive. Congratulations to Tom!
