Board Certification means an attorney has been recognized by the Florida Bar Association as having special knowledge, skills, and proficiency in a particular area of law. When your attorney is board certified, you can rest assured that your lawyer has extensive professional experience and adheres to the highest ethical standards.
Your attorney is your advocate, and you deserve to have the best representative standing up for you after an injury. Asking about board certifications is an important way to ensure that a lawyer has the credentials to represent you.
In Florida, only seven percent of eligible members of the Florida Bar have obtained board certification. Many lawyers do not meet the strict criteria for becoming certified in their area of practice. Minimum requirements to obtain board certifications include:
A minimum of five years practicing law.
Proof of substantial involvement in and experience with the legal field and with the area of specialization where the attorney seeks to become certified.
Successfully passing peer reviews addressing character, professionalism in the practice of law, ethics, and competence in the specialty field where certification is sought.
Satisfying continuing legal education requirements.
Passing an examination to demonstrate knowledge of the specialty area, or meeting strict criteria for exemption from the examination.
Board certification remains valid only for five years, and only as long as the certified attorney continues practicing law and attending continuing legal education courses approved by the Florida Bar Association. The ongoing requirements ensure that attorneys with board certifications remain active professionals in their area of specialization.
When you want lawyers who have proven themselves to clients and peers, hiring attorneys with board certifications is a smart choice.
