How Attorneys Become Board-Certified
The process of becoming board-certified by the Florida Bar is challenging. As such, board-certified attorneys are considered specialists in their respective areas of law.
To become board-certified by the Florida Bar, attorneys must fulfill specific standards, including:
- Passing a written examination
- Undergoing evaluations by local attorneys and judges for competency, as well as for their character, ethics, and professionalism in the practice of law
- Demonstrate an ability to handle a wide range of related legal matters
