When an attorney is Board Certified, this means that he or she has been selected as the best of the best in his or her area of law practice. In order to become Board Certified, an attorney must:
- Be in good standing
- Have practiced law for a minimum of five years
- Have taken additional educational requirements
- Have passed a comprehensive exam
- Have demonstrated proficiency in his or her chosen area of law.
It has been said that only about seven percent of attorneys become Board Certified in their practice areas.
