A Historic Year in Criminal Law

Jose Baez wins Criminal Defense Lawyer of the Year 2022

On January 24, 2023, The National Trial Lawyers Association awarded Jose Baez the Criminal Defense Trial Lawyer of the Year Award. This prestigious award is bestowed on preeminent trial lawyers who have risen to the top of the legal profession. To qualify for
such a distinct recognition, the recipient must exemplify superior leadership, reputation, stature, and profile qualifications as a civil or criminal defense trial attorney.

With about 1.33 million lawyers in the United States, national recognition as the most prominent lawyer in a given legal field is a challenging feat. Nevertheless, every year the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame and The National Trial Lawyers Association scour the country to find nationally transcendent attorneys whose zealous advocacy has woven them into the fabric of the American legal tradition as dedicated champions of justice. Then, the most exceptional trial lawyer representing the best of the legal profession is selected as the national criminal or civil trial lawyer of the year.Lawyer of the Year 2022
So, what exactly sets Jose Baez apart from other trial attorneys nationwide? Brilliant courtroom skills, a relentless pursuit of justice, and record-breaking favorable results in high-profile and publicly significant cases are just a few of Baez’s noteworthy distinctions.

During his acceptance speech, Baez stated, “I am honored to receive this award, but it is not just about me. It’s about my clients and the trust they put in me to defend them. Every case is unique, and I treat each one with the same level of attention and care. I believe that everyone deserves a fair trial and a strong defense, and I am committed to achieving the best possible outcome for my clients.”

In criminal defense litigation, a trial attorney’s goal is to win a not-guilty verdict or to have charges against one’s client dismissed. Such results take years of experience, a thorough understanding of the law, and a relentless commitment to defending the rights of a criminally accused client. Many lawyers may have these favorable attributes, yet, only some attorneys are honored as the top national attorney of the year. Thus, winning the national 2023 Criminal Defense Lawyer of the Year Award is a testament to Baez’s dedication, skill, and commitment to every client and case he handles.
