BOARD CERTIFICATION

TEXAS BOARD OF LEGAL SPECIALIZATION

Identifying a Criminal Law Board Certified Attorney


The consumer can identify a Criminal Law Board Certified attorney in one of many ways. A Criminal Law Board Certified attorney is entitled to indicate certification on business cards and letterhead by stating "Board Certified - Criminal Law - Texas Board of Legal Specialization." The attorney may also display the Certificate of Special Competence awarded by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and list the certification in legal directories and telephone listings under "Attorneys - Board Certified." Initial certification is valid for a period of five years. To remain certified, an attorney must apply for recertification every five years and meet practice, peer review and continuing legal education requirements for the specialty field. An attorney who is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Criminal Law must have experience in the preparation and trial of serious criminal matters. The attorney must also have extensive knowledge of state and federal constitutional law, evidence, procedure and penal laws involved in the trial of these matters. A relatively small percentage of all Texas lawyers are board certified in a particular area of specialization.

To become Board Certified in Criminal Law, an attorney must have:

Criminal Law Board Certified Attorney  Been licensed to practice law for at least five years
Criminal Law Board Certified Attorney  Devoted a required percentage of practice to criminal law for at least three years
Criminal Law Board Certified Attorney  Handled a wide variety of criminal law matters to demonstrate experience and involvement
Criminal Law Board Certified Lawyer  Attended criminal law continuing education seminars regularly to keep legal training up to date
Criminal Law Board Certified Attorney  Been evaluated by fellow lawyers and judges
Criminal Law Board Certified Lawyer  Passed a day-long written examination covering state & federal criminal law

The Texas Board of Legal Specialization was created by, and operates under the authority of, the Supreme Court of Texas. Its members are appointed by the President of the State Bar of Texas. The Board administers the program by which an attorney may earn a certificate of special competence in a particular field of law. The program is voluntary and is funded entirely by fees imposed on participating attorneys.
