Florida’s Top 6% Board Certified Attorneys

According to the Florida Bar there are 71,881 attorneys in Florida, but only 6% are Board Certified Attorneys. Why?  Because it’s not easy – It requires the highest level of expertise, education and performance.  Every 5 years they are re-evaluated to ensure that they still meet the rigid requirements.

According to the Florida Bar President, Eugene Pettis, “Board certification is becoming a standard of preference for an increasing number of clients. In an ever-crowded field of over 93,000 lawyers, the achievement of board certification – the Bar’s highest evaluation of a lawyer’s competence and experience in a particular area of practice – is the only way of distinguishing yourself as an expert or a specialist. I highly encourage lawyers to demonstrate their competence and experience through seeking board certification in their professional areas.”

The Minimum Requirements to be a Board Certified Attorney are:

  • Practice law for a minimum of five years. 
  • Demonstrate substantial involvement in the field of law for which certification is sought. 
  • Pass satisfactory peer review of competence in the specialty field as well as character, ethics and professionalism in the practice of law. 
  • Satisfy the certification area’s continuing legal education requirements. 
  • Receive a passing grade on the examination required of all applicants or meet strict criteria to exempt the exam.
