What does it mean to be board certified?

Board certification is one of the highest levels of professional evaluation. Administered by the Florida Bar, the board certification program measures an attorney's level of competency and experience within a specific area of law. Board certification recognizes an attorney's exceptional level of knowledge, skills, and proficiency, as well as the attorney's superior level of professionalism and ethical practices.

According to the Florida Supreme Court and the Board of Legal Specialization and Education, a board-certified specialist must fulfill the following requirements:

  • A minimum of five years of practice in a specific area of law
  • Substantial involvement in the area of law for which the attorney is seeking certification
  • Satisfactory peer reviews from other lawyers
  • Approval from judges to assess the lawyer's competence, character, ethics, and professionalism
  • Satisfactory completion of continued legal education requirements defined by the certification area of law
  • Passing grades on extensive exams and other assessment requirements
