What does it mean for a lawyer in Texas to be board certified in family law? Let's ask Austin lawyer Jimmy Vaught for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
Well, it usually means that you've reached a certain level of expertise in that particular area, you also had to have a certain number of years practicing primarily, let's say, for example, family law, you have to have references, numerous references, you have to use, I think, 60 hours of Continuing Legal Education, and most importantly, you have to take a six-hour competence exam, and so it's a pretty difficult process, but once someone is board-certified, I think it raises a level on their expertise in that particular area.
