What Difference Can A Board-Certified Criminal Attorney Make For You?
With an extensive process to qualify for certification, a board-certified criminal attorney has demonstrated an in-depth knowledge and experience in Texas state and federal courts. Prior to a written examination, lawyers must have handled a minimum amount of cases in order to qualify for the honor. It is a mark of distinction just to take the examination given by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Additionally, board certification is something an attorney must continue to work at. It is not a one-time achievement. Every year a certified attorney must send in a statement demonstrating that a significant part of his or her practice is devoted to criminal law. Attorneys are then asked to recertify every five years. Judges continue to scrutinize competency as a criminal trial attorney and lawyers must take at least one hundred hours of CLE (Continuing Legal Education) classes between recertification, as well as make themselves subject to peer reviews.
