What Is the Importance of Board Certification?

When it comes to being a bankruptcy attorney, it is not a requirement to be Board Certified® by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. In fact, fewer than one in ten Texas attorneys have this certification. Most attorneys that practice in the field of bankruptcy law are not certified by any organization. The Maida Law Firm, P.C. is often asked whether it is important to hire a lawyer who has obtained this certification by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. No bankruptcy court requires that attorneys be Board Certified® to practice in their court. So, what is the importance of hiring a Beaumont bankruptcy attorney who is Board Certified®?

Description of the Rigorous Process

Board certification by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization shows that the attorney has decided to take an extra step in his or her career that is not necessary but beneficial. The process is not easy; it is a rigorous and time-consuming testing process. The Board only certifies lawyers who have successfully passed their tests and met the high standards it requires. The attorney candidate must prove to the committee that he or she has litigated a set number of bankruptcy cases within a set time period. The candidate must also be peer reviewed and accepted by other lawyers. This arduous process proves that the approved lawyer is dedicated to the clients whom he or she serves.

The process that must be undertaken to receive and then retain board certification is one that not many attorneys choose to undertake. It requires patience, loyalty, and dedication. If you are faced with the choice of which attorney to hire, a board certification could aid in this difficult decision. It recognizes the attorney's commitment and symbolizes that the attorney has pursued a respectable reputation among other lawyers and additional education. If you choose to hire a board-certified bankruptcy attorney, you can be assured that your lawyer is an expert in bankruptcy law.
