Civil trial law is one of the most difficult certifications to obtain because of the requirement for actual trial experience. To obtain certification as a board certified civil trial lawyer, the lawyer must have tried a minimum of 20 cases, no more than 1/3 of which can be personal injury cases, obtain recommendations from 10 other lawyers, and at least one judge, and pass a written exam covering a wide variety of types of cases.

A lawyer, who performs litigation yet has not tried a case in more than three years, is not a trial lawyer.
