American Board of Criminal Lawyers

The American Board of Criminal Lawyers (ABCL) was founded in June 1978. The primary concern of the ABCL is the preservation and the free exercise of fundamental freedoms for all those accused of criminal conduct. Over the years, ABCL Fellows have become regularly involved in high profile criminal cases throughout the country, where the principles of the Organization and the collective experience of the Fellows have made a worthwhile contribution.

Andy Savage is a Fellow in the American Board of Criminal Lawyers (since 2017).

The National Board of Legal Specialty Certification is an outgrowth of the National Board of Trial Advocacy. The NBLSC is a non-profit organization accredited by the American Bar Association to provide board certification for attorneys.The standards set forth by our Board of Directors for board certification in each of our four specialty areas are challenging and meaningful. NBLSC board certification is a voluntary certification. It is not a requirement to practice law and, therefore, any lawyer who has taken the extra time and effort to achieve this credential can be justifiably proud. A consumer who chooses an NBLSC member for a lawyer can be sure of obtaining a highly experienced and specialized practitioner.
