Attorney Robertson H. Wendt, Jr. achieves recertification in Social Security Disability Law with the National Board of Trial Advocacy (“NBTA”).
The NBTA was formed out a strong conviction that both the law profession and its clients would benefit from an organization designed specifically to create an objective set of standards illustrating an attorney’s experience and expertise in the practice of law.
Mr. Wendt is a 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 expertise, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency, attendance of continuing legal education courses, and proof of good standing.
Mr. Wendt earned his undergraduate degree from Washington and Lee University in 1978. He is a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law. Mr. Wendt is licensed to practice in the State of South Carolina, as well as the United States District Court District of Columbia, the United States Court of Appeals Fourth Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Mr. Wendt is currently the Secretary for the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), as well as member of the American Association of Justice, the South Carolina Association for Justice, and the Charleston County Bar Association.
Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. Wendt is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in his specialty area of social security disability and earn board certification.
