What Does it Mean to be Board Certified?
A Board Certified Lawyer is considered to be a specialist in a particular area of law. Mark Anderson is a Board Certified Personal Injury Attorney, who has been working in the North Texas area for more than 20 years. According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, being Board Certified is "a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment."
Attorneys cannot become Board Certified until they have been in practice for at least five years. Attorneys who choose to go through the Board Certification process also have to pass a six hour written examination.
Certified Personal Injury Attorneys handle cases involving motor vehicle accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, pedestrian accidents, on the job injuries, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death cases and many other types of accident injuries.
Out of the 70,000 attorneys who are licensed to practice in Texas, only 7,000 are Board Certified. It is very important when going through the process of hiring a lawyer that you find one who is experienced and qualified to handle your particular kind of case.
