Board certification is The Florida Bar’s highest evaluation of attorneys’ competence and experience. In Florida, only board certified lawyers may use the terms “specialist”, “expert” or “B.C.S.” for Board Certified Specialist when referring to their legal credentials. Board certified lawyers must demonstrate ability and experience in their fields and professionalism and ethics within the legal community. About 4,600 of Florida’s 93,000 lawyers have earned board certification. Florida offers 24 specialty areas for board certification, more than any other state.
“Maintaining board certification for 30 continuous years is a significant professional accomplishment,” said Florida Bar President Gwynne A. Young of Carlton Fields in Tampa. “These individuals are leaders by example in Florida’s legal profession and we salute their commitment to excellence and professionalism in the practice of law.”
