What is a Board Certified Lawyer and Why Should You Hire One?

Doctors need a license to practice medicine and to obtain this license a doctor must graduate from medical school, fulfill residency requirements and be approved by the state’s medical board.  However, for a doctor to attain board certification, they must choose a specific area of practice, complete additional hours of training and pass exams beyond what is required for a normal license. Additionally, to maintain board certification the doctor must stay up the date with the latest research and techniques in their field via continuing education. Wouldn’t this be a valuable certification for attorneys also?

In seeking out a board certified doctor, a patient will have gone even farther to ensure that the treatment being received is coming from someone who has specialized in and attained a depth of knowledge and expertise in that specific field of medicine required. Doesn’t your case warrant that same level of specialization?

Many people feel that a doctor is a doctor regardless of their specialty or experience and that so long as they have a medical degree, the care they render will be sufficient. Unfortunately, the medical field is extremely broad and there are some bad doctors out there. Not putting in the due diligence and extra effort to finding a board certified doctor could limit the quality of care a patient receives and even result in negligent medical treatment that falls below ‘the standard of care’. Shouldn’t you put the same degree of care into selecting your attorney?… YES!
