Why Us – Why Choose a Certified Family Law Specialist?

California Board of Legal SpecializationSome attorneys claim to be ‘specialists’ in family law, though stating so is often putting their state bar license in jeopardy. Claiming to be a ‘specialist’ or ‘expert’ in family law is very different than actually being a Board-Certified Specialist in Family Law. For an attorney to become a Board-Certified Family Law Specialist he or she must practice law in family law for years before they are even allowed to apply for the coveted recognition.

Why choose a Certified Family Law Specialist? – Certified Specialist applicants must fulfill numerous California State Bar mandated requirements including lengthy hours of additional study to prepare for the required and rigorous examination that will demonstrate a high level of competency and skill in family law. A Certified Specialist must demonstrate requisite experience including proven handling of a broad spectrum of family law matters in the real world. Finally, Certified Specialists must undergo a tedious and extensive peer review by other certified specialists (lawyers) and judicial officers (judges). Once the coveted title of ‘Certified Specialist in Family Law’ is earned, ongoing and mandatory advanced education goals must be attained to remain in good standing with the California State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization.
