James O. Cunningham – 35 Years as a Board Certified Trial Lawyer

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 16, 2019

The process by which one gains certification as a lawyer in Civil Trial Law is not simple. It began in the early days of the 1980s, when The Florida Bar started issuing certificates to lawyers wishing to practice in this highly specialized area.

In order to complete the certification, lawyers must have a lengthy list of achievements. These include:

  • A five year minimum practice within the field of law
  • The successful completion of a peer review
  • A written exam that covers an extraordinary range of topics, designed to prove beyond a doubt the experience of the lawyer seeking the certification
  • The successful completion of additional testing administered by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA)

One of the earliest applicants for this certification within the state of Florida was James O. Cunningham. His first recognition by the Florida Bar in this circumstance came in 1984 when he joined a small rank of attorneys with designations as Civil Trial lawyers.

Not merely a distinction that one receives once in their life, attorneys seeking distinction as Board Certified Trial lawyers must go through the same rigorous process once every five years. This year, James O. Cunningham once again completed all of the necessary parts of the process in order to receive, once again, another five years as a Board Certified Trial Lawyer for the state of Florida.

Ultimately, what this means is that James O. Cunningham is proving himself more dedicated than ever to fight for the rights of victims in Orlando and throughout the state of Florida. His 35 years as a Board Certified Trial Lawyer have proven his passion for the area, and his ability to continually renew his certification emphasizes his wide ranging expertise as well as his success in the field.

Going forward, James O. Cunningham will continue to provide to the people of Florida the resources, support, and fighting spirit that have led so many to begin finding restitution for tragedy. His 35-year-long achievements in the field have only added to his ability to vigorously defend those who have suffered unjustly, and his successful reapplication to be a Board Certified Trial Lawyer shows the trajectory on which James O. Cunningham will remain for the foreseeable future.
