WHY RETAIN A BOARD-CERTIFIED LAWYER?
Evaluated for Professionalism, Tested for Expertise

the practice of law.
Certification requires lawyers to pass a
comprehensive examination that evaluates a
high level of knowledge, skills, and expertise
in a specialty field.
PROFESSIONALISM AND ETHICS
Each board-certified lawyer undergoes a rigorous
peer-review process that assesses competence in a
specialty field, as well as professionalism and ethics
in the practice of law.
Established by the Florida Supreme Court, board
certification is conferred upon lawyers by the most
credible and highest authority over the state’s legal
community, The Florida Bar.
