NADC is an organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. Its mission is to recognition of attorneys who elevate the standards of the Bar and provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate. 

The membership selection process begins with identifying prospective candidates. NADC researchers then employ a lengthy vetting process before a blue ribbon panel of attorneys studies the results and determines who possesses the background, accomplishments and prowess to serve as an example to other attorneys. Finally, a judicial review board, led by a group of former judges, weighs in on the final candidates. The high level of selectivity in the appointment process results in awarding NADC membership only to the top one percent of attorneys in the United States.
