John Zavitsanos Earns Recertification by the National Board of Trial Advocacy 
February 17, 2020

HOUSTON – AZA co-founder John Zavitsanos has been recertified in civil trial advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy after completing a rigorous review process.

Mr. Zavitsanos is also board certified in civil trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

The state and national certifications are awarded based on a review process that results in only a small percentage of lawyers earning certification. The national trial advocacy board’s screening criteria includes demonstration of substantial trial experience; submission of judicial and peer references attesting to the lawyer’s professional competency; participation in continuing legal education courses; and proof of good standing. The Texas board certification requires that lawyers have tried at least 20 civil trials that meet a substantive requirement and also pass a six-hour exam.

Mr. Zavitsanos has tried more than 75 cases to verdict in litigation that runs the gamut: financial services, oil and gas, construction, complex commercial disputes, director and officer liability, non-compete and trade secret disputes, and defamation/business disparagement. He is the primary author of O’Connor’s Texas Rules * Civil Trials 2018 – 2020, the premiere civil trial rules guide for Texas lawyers and judges.

In addition, Mr. Zavitsanos has been named a Leader in Texas General Commercial Litigation since 2014 by Chambers USA and has earned recognition by the Best Lawyers in America since 2006, Texas Super Lawyers since 2003; and has been included among the Texas Super Lawyers Top 100 Lawyers in Texas since 2011.
