Pillar #4: Recognizing Excellence
ACA values a combination of both peer and public recognition of an attorney’s efforts and commitment to excellence. Achieving the status of Fellow of the American College of Attorneys® is an honor and the highest recognition of excellence.
There may be attorneys outside of our organization that we also want to acknowledge. It may be they have not yet joined yet. Perhaps they have not met the rigorous criteria required to be in our organization.
If an excellent attorney is not a member, or fellow, that does not stop us from giving due recognition. ACA will recognize those remarkable attorneys that have excelled and met our criteria for being considered the best at what they do, even if they have not joined our organization.
Recognitions that the ACA awards each year include the Best of the Bar and the Five Star Rating Award among other honors.
These recognitions do not make an attorney a member or bestow any ACA status upon an attorney.
