What is Board Certification?

Florida is different than most states because Florida offers Board Certification for attorneys, a process which involves a peer review, and specialty competency exams. The Florida Bar Board of Legal Certification handles lawyer board certification.

Board certification requires that an attorney has practiced a minimum of five years. The attorneys are vetted, peer reviewed, and have to demonstrate exceptional ability in their specific practice area, and sit for an exam.

Board certified attorneys must recertify every five years, which requires substantial continuing and advanced education credits in their certified areas. In certain certifications, such as Jeffrey C. Regan’s in business litigation, the trial of five cases every five years along with input from the judges in those cases.

The Florida Bar states that only seven percent of Florida attorneys are board certified. Only board certified attorneys are allowed to state they are experts or specialists within a specified practice area. An attorney must be board certified to be deemed expert. Specialist and expert are words that are proudly stated by the Regan Atwood board certified attorneys.
