Is Having a Board Certified Lawyer Important?

An overlooked quality that one should seek out in a criminal defense attorney is the rigorous qualification of being Board Certified. Certification is the highest level of evaluation conducted by The Florida Bar pertaining to the experience and competency of an attorney in areas of law that are recognized for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida. During certification the bar examines the attorney’s skill, special knowledge, and proficiency in their area of law, as well as other areas of law, including the ethics and professionalism in practice.
