Dani K. Liblang Added to National Trial Lawyers' Top 100

There are few honors higher than being invited to join the National Trial Lawyers' Top 100. Attorneys on that list represent the best in the nation – you simply can't hire anyone better. Now consumer protection attorney Dani K. Liblang is joining the ranks of this prestigious organization.
The National Trial Lawyers is a professional organization made up of the best trial lawyers from across the country – representing everyday people in plaintiff's civil litigation and criminal defense. According to Executive Director Michelle Swanner,
It is the mission of The National Trial Lawyers association to promote excellence in the legal profession through practical educational programs, networking opportunities, and legal publications that deal with current issues facing The Trial Lawyer.”
And the Top 100 are the best of the best. Selection is based on nomination by fellow lawyers and third-party research. An invitation to join is extended only to the most qualified attorneys from each state based on their qualifications of “leadership, reputation, influence, stature and public profile.” According to the National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 website,
Each of our distinguished Top 100 members possesses the knowledge, skill, experience and success held by only the finest and best lawyers in America. By combining resources, power, and influence, The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 is devoted to preserving and protecting justice for all.
That is why it is such an honor that the National Trial Lawyers have invited Attorney Dani K. Liblang to join their Top 100 for Michigan. Liblang has always had a passion for fighting for the average Joe consumer. For over 30 years, she has focused on lemon law, auto accident claims, and in fighting creditors in consumer protection lawsuits. Cases she has won for her clients have literally changed the industry – giving consumers the legal ground to fight large corporations who put defective products up for sale.
Her hard work on behalf of her clients has earned her a great reputation across Michigan, and the nation. Dani K. Liblang is one of Michigan's only consumer protection lawyers to receive the highest AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and to be certified in trial advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. She has been the chair of the State Bar of Michigan's Consumer Law Section on two separate occasions, and in 2002, Liblang was awarded the “Consumer Hero Award” by the National Association of Consumer Advocates.
Even with all these awards, Dani K. Liblang is still deeply touched by the invitation to join the National Trial Lawyers' Top 100:
As of 2014, Michigan has 34,739, licensed attorneys, so to be invited as one of the top 100 Michigan trial lawyers, feels like quite an honor. It also feels great to be invited to a join a group of lawyers dedicated to preserving justice and who are not afraid to call themselves “trial lawyers.” Every day, trial lawyers are on the front lines, standing up for ordinary citizens who have been injured or abused, discriminated against, or who have suffered economic injustice. I’m very humbled and proud to be part of this prestigious organization. 
She and her staff have worked hard to deserve this honor, and continue to bring their best to every one of their clients. If you want one of the National Trial Lawyers' Top 100 attorneys in Michigan in your corner, contact The Liblang Law Firm, PC, for a free consultation today.
