Why Choose a Board Certified Lawyer?*
Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguished accomplishment within the Texas legal community.
Consumers and organizations get the highest quality of legal services when working with Board Certified lawyers — having substantial experience, the respect of their peers, and proven specialized competence in their select area of law. Out of 110,000 lawyers that are licensed to practice in Texas, only 7450 are Board Certified. These lawyers have voluntarily applied for Board Certification, have a minimum of 5 years of practice experience (with at least three years in specific legal areas), completed at least 60 hours of continuing legal education hours and passed a rigorous exam. Once certified, these lawyers meet additional criteria to continue their education and involvement in their specialty area as well as reapply for Board Certification every 5 years.
