What You Should Know about Florida Lawyers
Before you hire an attorney, keep the following in mind:
All licensed Florida attorneys, simply by virtue of being licensed, have
the minimum qualifications to represent you in a
personal injury matter. Your challenge will be to dig deeper to select an attorney with more
than the minimum qualifications.
- Any lawyer may claim to be a “personal injury attorney,” an
“injury law attorney,” or “trial attorney.” You
need only possess a license to practice law to make these claims. A deeper
examination may reveal they have never conducted a jury trial in a personal
injury case… ever.
- Descriptive terms like “aggressive,” “tenacious,”
and “experienced” mean nothing and can be claimed by all attorneys.
Board Certification is a meaningful way to distinguish an attorney’s level of skill
and experience. Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyers have achieved a level
of competence and experience that is possessed by less 2% of all Florida
lawyers. Many lawyers who advertise, in fact some the biggest advertisers,
do not possess the minimum qualifications to become Board Certified.
- Board Certification is the highest level of evaluation by the Florida Bar
of competency and experience within an area of law and professionalism
- If you do not see the words “Board Certified,” “expert,”
or “specialist” and you don’t see the Board Certified
logo in a lawyer’s advertisement there is only one reason –
they have not achieved Board Certification. You should demand the Board
Certified difference for your case. Only 1.24% of the 87,000 members of
the Florida Bar are Board Certified.
Only Board Certified lawyers can advertise themselves as an “expert”
or “specialist” in their field.
