Why Should You Choose a Bar Certified Family Law Specialist?
When you’re looking for a family law attorney, you want to make sure you hire someone with the proper credentials and experience. Because family law cases can get rather complicated, it’s prudent to work with a Bar Certified Family Law Specialist. These attorneys are better equipped to get your desired results.
Attorneys in California can only identify themselves as Board Certified have met a series of requirements:
Pass a written examination in their specialty
At least five continuous years practicing law with at least 25% of that time working in their specialty
Complete continuing education in their specialty area more significant than what is required to maintain their State Bar license
Demonstrate comprehensive experience in the specialty area
Have favorable evaluations by other attorneys in judges familiar with the attorney’s work in their specialty
Bar Certification in a specialty is not a lifetime appointment. To maintain their certifications, family lawyers must complete continuing education credits and preserve a positive standing in their professional community.
When you work with a Bar Certified Family Lawyer, you know that they have devoted their time and energy to the best in their field. You also know that lawyers and judges familiar with your attorney’s work agree that your lawyer maintains the highest levels of integrity, professionalism, and legal knowledge in their field.
Working with a Board Certified Family Lawyer Specialist means having confidence that your attorney is
Highly motivated and dedicated to your case
Knowledgeable in all areas of family law
Committed to continuing being a better lawyer and continuing their education
Dedicated to keeping a positive reputation in their field and community
While all lawyers must be licensed to practice in their respective states, certification is entirely voluntary. Just like some doctors are considered general practitioners, many law firms consider themselves to be one-stop-shops or “full service.”
It comes down to whether you want to work with someone who has general knowledge about your needs or someone who has devoted their life to specialize in a particular area.
Just like you’re going to get a better evaluation and treatment for diabetes from an endocrinologist instead of a primary care doctor, a Bar Certified Specialist is the best person to take care of your needs.
Fewer than 0.5% of California attorneys have reached the level of being a true specialist in their fields. If earning and maintaining certification in a specialty was easy, more lawyers would do it. The amount of work required to reach this level is evidence of your specialized lawyer’s commitment.
