What Is Board Certified?

Learn Why Certification from The Florida Bar is Valuable

Board certification is a rare and important accomplishment achieved by only a small percentage of attorneys. This process requires extensive additional testing and training, and identifies the attorney who has successfully completed the process as an expert in his or her field.

If your attorney is board certified, you can have an added dose of confidence knowing that he or she has been identified for, according to The Florida Bar:

  • Special knowledge
  • Skill
  • Proficiency
  • Professionalism
  • Ethics in practice

According to the website for The Florida Bar, "Certification is the highest level of evaluation by The Florida Bar of competency and experience within an area of law, and professionalism and ethics in practice." There are 24 separate areas of certification in the state of Florida. Certification sets an attorney apart, not only for his or her ability to complete the necessary requirements, but also for the desire to do so. Achieving this goal takes time and effort, and it is not required. Knowing that your attorney has gone through this process can give you confidence that he / she takes this field seriously and is committed to providing excellent representation for clients.
