American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys

The American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys, organized in 1972, is a national organization comprised of leading trial advocates in the area of professional negligence law. It is the only organization accredited by the American Bar Association to identify and board certify attorneys in the areas of medical malpractice and legal malpractice. Board Certification is restricted to those practicing attorneys who, because of their recognized ability in the area of professional negligence law, and their qualifications consistent with ABPLA standards, merit particular recognition as specialists in these areas of practice.

To become Board Certified as a professional negligence attorney by ABPLA, malpractice lawyers must meet ABPLA’s high standards in each of these five key areas: Experience, Ethics, Education, Examination, and Excellence.

M. Lawrence Lallande, Sr. is certified by ABPLA in the area of Medical Professional Liability.
