The American Society of Legal Advocates is an invitation-only, nationwide organization of elite lawyers in practice today who combine stellar legal credentials with a proven commitment to community engagement and the highest professional standards.  A team of lawyers spent six months researching tens of thousands of lawyers across the country and manually selecting less than 1.5% of all lawyers based on an array of criteria.  ASLA’s Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 listings recognize exceptional legal talent and early promise among the next generation of great lawyers.  ASLA strives for practical diversity and rich experience in order to offer the best resources to those seeking 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 create in-depth profiles of themselves, and enhance their practices by providing them with the ability to network, market their practice, discuss cutting-edge legal issues, refer clients, and benefit from sponsored services.

Our Mission

To bring together a select pool of diverse legal talent for the benefit of ASLA’s members and the public.  With membership limited to less than 1.5% of of all licensed lawyers nationwide, we select outstanding lawyers in all states, 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.
