Board Certified Specialists

In 1982, The Florida Bar initiated a certification program to identify attorneys who have demonstrated special knowledge, skills and proficiency in certain areas of law. Our firm is distinguished in that the majority of our attorneys are Board Certified* specialists in their respective areas of practice, which include tax, wills, trusts and estates, civil trial and business litigation, and real estate law. Few firms can boast such a vast range of experience and specialist distinction by their lawyers.

*AV Preeminent and BV Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories: legal ability and general ethical standards.

**Established in 1982 by the Florida Supreme Court, board certification provides consumers with assurance in the selection of legal counsel. Certification is the highest level of recognition by The Florida Bar of the competency of attorneys in the areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida. To be certified, lawyers must practice for at least 5 years, show substantial involvement in the area of law for which they are certified, receive a passing examination grade, be assessed by peer review, and meet continuing legal education requirements in the area of law certified.
