The Benefits of Hiring a Board-Certified Attorney

professional accomplishments are hallmark characteristics that many people
look for when searching for the best possible legal representation. The
Lakeland personal injury attorneys at our firm have proven that our experience,

of our practice.

has been marked by consistently impressive case results, extensive trial
experience, and satisfied clients. We strongly believe these characteristics
are what separate us from the competition.
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
- 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
- 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
