The American Society of Legal Advocates, ASLA, is an invitation-only, nationwide organization of elite lawyers in practice today. ASLA draws its membership from lawyers who combine stellar legal credentials with a proven commitment to community engagement and the highest professional standards. Through ASLA’s Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 listings, we recognize exceptional legal talent and early promise among the next generation of great lawyers. Whether Immigration lawyers in California, Corporate lawyers in Delaware, or Trust & Estates lawyers in New York, we strive for practical diversity and rich experience in order to offer the best resources to those seeking legal counsel. ASLA’s easy-to-search directory enables those seeking representation to choose among a carefully-selected, highly-qualified community of lawyers with experience in wide-ranging practice areas in virtually any jurisdiction. ASLA offers members the opportunity to enhance their practices by providing them with the ability to network, discuss cutting-edge legal issues, refer clients, and benefit from ASLA-sponsored events and services. In addition, ASLA supports the legal community by routinely donating to non-profit legal organizations and events, and welcomes members’ donation recommendations. About Our Members ASLA was founded to bring together a select pool of diverse legal talent for the benefit of its members and the public. ASLA limits its membership to less than 1.5% of all licensed lawyers nationwide. We select outstanding lawyers in all states (except New Jersey and Texas, where we’re based), featuring no more than 100 lawyers per state – and 40 lawyers under the age of 40 – in each area of practice or specialty, with specialties varying per state depending on the number of practicing lawyers. ASLA aims to serve as a go-to source of exceptional legal advocacy, and, in turn, to strengthen professional relationships and best practices among member lawyers. Our Top 100 Lawyers in a given specialty include seasoned veterans with demonstrated excellence in their field and a sustained commitment to the profession. Our Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 identifies and recognizes lawyers demonstrating leadership and talent early on in their careers, not only in their practice, but in exemplifying the characteristics that will demonstrate the best that the legal profession has to offer. By highlighting the work of those showing promise among the next generation of lawyers, we hope to foster growth in the legal profession and promote the highest standards of practice. ASLA’s membership is by invitation only. While we accept nominations from licensed attorneys, we do not accept self-nominations or nominations from marketing companies, and every nomination is thoroughly vetted by ASLA’s lawyers. ASLA members are exclusively lawyers who have been identified by their peers to be the most skilled in practice. Any member who later is disciplined by his or her state bar is expected to report this information to ASLA, and will have their membership revoked.
