Why Choose a Board Certified Attorney

Board Certification is the highest title for a criminal law attorney in Texas.  To become Board Certified, an attorney must demonstrate extensive knowledge of the law through several years of practice as well as through numerous trials and appeals.  An attorney must also be recommended by several other attorneys.  Finally, if selected, the attorney must pass a comprehensive day-long exam that covers state, federal, appellate, and post-conviction criminal law.      

There are over 100,000 attorneys in Texas, but as of 2017, there were less than 900 Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists.  To remain Board Certified, a lawyer must show an ongoing involvement in the specialty area, be peer-reviewed, and take substantially more continuing legal education courses than non-Board Certified lawyers.  A Board Certified lawyer will have extensive, relevant experience in a specific field of law. By choosing a Board Certified lawyer, you are choosing a highly qualified, skilled, and devoted lawyer to represent you.
