Awards

Mr. Tiftickjian has been recognized by many peer reviewed organizations and publications that list top lawyers in the country. None of these awards are paid for. We do not partake in paid-for, fake awards, badges and certifications, such as those marketed by organizations like American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, American Institute of DUI/DWI Attorneys, Lawyers of Distinction, and The National Trial Lawyers. These sham awards undermine lawyers credibility in the legal community and the courts.
