Top Trial Attorney

The American Society of Legal Advocates is an invitation-only, nationwide organization of elite lawyers in practice today who combine stellar legal credentials with a proven commitment to community engagement and the highest professional standards. A team of lawyers spent six months researching tens of thousands of lawyers across the country and manually selecting less than 1.5% of all lawyers based on an array of criteria. ASLA’s Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 listings recognize exceptional legal talent and early promise among the next generation of great lawyers.

This selection comes shortly after Nagel won a $30,000 verdict in a dog bite trial in Madison County, Illinois.

ASLA previously named Matthew Nagel as a Top 40 Under 40 Trial Attorney in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
