Weber Gallagher Partner Richard S. Ranieri Achieves Recertification in Civil Trial Law with the National Board of Trial Advocacy


Philadelphia, February 6, 2023 - The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) is pleased to announce that Richard S. Ranieri, of the law firm Weber Gallagher, has successfully achieved recertification as a civil trial advocate. 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.

Ranieri 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.

Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve.  Board certifications are the only distinctions awarded by non-profit organizations. The NBTA as well as all board certifying organizations are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.

Ranieri handles complex general liability and products cases and environmental litigation claims. He defends cases in multiple state and federal courts for complex matters including those that allege exposure to various substances such as benzene, mold and lead. Ranieri earned his undergraduate degree from Drexel University. He is a graduate of Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. Ranieri is licensed to practice in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel, the Council on Litigation Management, the Trial Attorneys of New Jersey, and the Indoor Air Quality Subcommittee.

Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified and Ranieri is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
