The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) is pleased to announce that Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty (KWGD) Attorney Matthew P. Mullen has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial advocate. Mr. Mullen has been a NBTA Member in good standing since 2011. The NBTA was formed out of a strong conviction that both the law profession and its clients would benefit from an organization designed specifically to create an objective set of standards illustrating an attorney’s experience and expertise in the practice of trial law.

Mr. Mullen is part of a growing number of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel.

The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board certified attorneys must successfully complete includes: demonstration of substantial trial experience, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency, attendance of continuing legal education courses and proof of good standing.

Mr. Mullen earned his B.A., cum laude, from the University of Akron and his Juris Doctor, magna cum laude from the University of Akron School of Law. Mullen is licensed to practice law in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. 

Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified and Mr. Mullen is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification. For more information on the National Board of Trial Advocacy visit
