We’re often ask by clients what “board certification” means. Why are some lawyers board certified? For instance, what is the difference between a civil trial attorney and someone who is a board certified civil trial attorney?
This a good question. There is a big distinction when someone takes the steps to earn board certification in a specialty area of law.
Just as doctors and dentists focus on a specialty area of medicine or dentistry in which they develop expertise, attorneys may choose to specialize in a specific area of law.
