Los Angeles, USA / ACCESSWIRE / July 7th, 2014 / Attorney Derek Pakiz, the lead trial lawyer at The Reeves Law Group has been selected by The National Trial Lawyers organization to be a member of its Top 100 Trial Lawyers.
Pakiz is now in company with a premier group of attorneys who practice in civil plaintiff litigation. He was selected “because of his performance as an exceptional trial lawyer in the practice area of civil plaintiff law,” according to the organization.
“The National Trial Lawyers is a professional organization of America’s top trial lawyers. Membership into the organization is by invitation only and is extended to those individuals who exemplify superior qualifications, trial results and leadership in their respective state or major geographical area,” according to Executive Director Michelle Swanner.
Since the 1980s, Pakiz has practiced exclusively in the field of personal injury law, representing victims of other people’s negligent and wrongful acts.
