Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the National Board of Trial Advocates

In order to legally claim specialization in civil trial law, an attorney must first become Board Certified. The National Board of Trial Advocacy requires an attorney to demonstrate good character and extensive practice in civil trial law before even applying. They must then undergo extensive review and testing to receive their certification as a specialist in civil trial law. All of our attorneys have passed each step of the process and are certified trial advocates with the NBTA.

Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Florida Bar Board of Legal Specialization and Education

Similar to the NBTA listed above, an attorney can become a board-certified specialist in trial law with their state bar.
