If accepted, you will become a member of perhaps one of the most exclusive lawyer groups in the nation. The pre-requisite of a multimillion dollar result excludes the majority of lawyers. The number of cases handled recognizes a lawyer's experience in that specialty area. The lawyers who do qualify for E.L.A. have distinguished themselves by devoting a significant part of their practice to a specialty area of the law. Members receive a beautiful desktop award commemorating their acceptance into E.L.A. that can be viewed by friends, colleagues and clients. Members can add this achievement to their already impressive resumes. Members can continue to go up our ladder of honor with the ultimate goal of becoming a platinum class member. Members are categorically listed on our official web site available for viewing over the internet in three different locations on the site; in the state section, in the alphabetical name section and in the classification section (Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Member). Join the cream of the crop of lawyers. Add your name to the ELITE lawyers of America!
