Is your lawyer board certifiedBoard certification is the process by which an expert demonstrates mastery of professional knowledge. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization is the only governing board authorized to certify attorneys in legal specialty areas.

The Board Certification signifies an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a specific area of law that has been demonstrated through the test.

There are more than 100,000 attorneys licensed to practice and less than 10 percent are Board Certified.

A practicing attorney with five years of experience and a minimum of three years’ experience in a specialty area can voluntarily take the exam.

It is not only extremely difficult to pass the test to become Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law, but these attorneys must also remain involved in the personal injury field and obtain periodic reviews from peers in that field.

A Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguished accomplishment in the legal field.
