A divorce lawyer based in Boca Raton, Florida, attorney Jeffrey A. Weissman has received numerous honors and accolades over the course of his career. In 2015, attorney Jeff Weissman was named to the National Association of Distinguished Counsel’s (NADC) Nation’s Top One Percent.

Dedicated to promoting high standards of legal achievement in the United States, NADC acknowledges the highest-performing attorneys in a broad range of practice areas. To select the top 1 percent of all attorneys in the United States, NADC uses a four-stage selection process.

Candidates for the Nation’s Top One Percent are identified via in-house research or nominations from NADC members or professional associates. Candidates then undergo an in-depth vetting process, during which NADC researchers evaluate areas such as firm profile and reputation, peer endorsements, leadership in legal organizations, and trial experience. Next, a panel of accomplished lawyers assess candidates and narrows down the list to a handful of elite lawyers. Finally, a judicial review board comprising former judges decides which attorneys represent the Nation’s Top One Percent.
