What is Board Certification?

Board certification is The Florida Bar’s highest level of evaluation of competency and experience. Certification recognizes an attorney’s special knowledge, skills, and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice. It is designed to help consumers identify specialists in various areas of law. Only 6% of eligible Florida Bar members are board certified. Not all qualified lawyers are certified, but those who are board certified have taken extra steps to have their competence and experience evaluated.

Wills, Trusts & Estates Certification

Wills, trusts, and estate law is the practice of law dealing with all aspects of planning for the conservation and disposition of estates, giving due consideration to the tax consequences, both federal and state; preparing legal instruments to effectuate estate plans; administering estates, including tax related matters; and probate litigation.
