Considering that a defendant facing severe penalties on the basis of an allegation has enough to contend with, fostering concerns related to the integrity of their legal counsel should be the least of their concerns. When you’re represented by a Board Certified© criminal law attorney you can be assured that your legal representation was fully vetted by other experienced criminal defense attorneys and criminal court judges as a best of breed professional prior to being certified.
The Texas Board of Legal Specialization
The Texas Board of Legal Specialization, or the TBLS for short, is an organization that was created by an order of the Texas Supreme Court that’s charged with certifying attorneys in certain specific areas of law with criminal-law being one of them.
Texas is one of only 11 states in the United States where the state examines attorneys in a specialty area of law and awards the certification if the attorney meets the skills, competency and knowledge criteria to be Board Certified®.
In order to become Board Certified® an attorney must have 5 years of practice under their belt, and receive a predetermined number of recommendations for a specific number of attorneys and/or judges. In addition, the successful completion of a monitored exam is also required.
Although some of the best lawyers in Texas aren’t Board Certified®, Board Certified® attorneys are always among the best lawyers in Texas.
Attorneys who are Board Certified® are the only lawyers allowed to display the seal on their business cards, websites, office areas, doors, and stationary.
