I recently received a letter from the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys informing me that, upon payment of a $300 “Award Administration Fee,” I will be allowed to accept a “TOP 10 Under 40 Attorney Award for the state of Pennsylvania.” My letter informs me that the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys “was established in 2013 with the primary goal of discovering and recognizing the top 10 Personal Injury attorneys in each state for their hard work.”
Unsurprisingly, these awards are bullshit and usually the letter goes right to the trash. I’m writing about this one because I noticed something funny when I went to the website for the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys. As of my writing, twenty four attorneys have the “TOP 10 Under 40” award for Pennsylvania. Congratulations to the winners.
