Why you should choose a Certified Family Law Expert.

California attorneys who are certified as specialists have taken and passed a written examination in their specialty field, demonstrated a high level of experience in the specialty field, fulfilled ongoing education requirements and been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.

Only these attorneys can advertise or identify themselves as “certified” specialists in California because they are the only attorneys who are certified either by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization or an organization whose certification program has been accredited by the State Bar.

A Family Law attorney who becomes a Certified Family Law Specialist has obtained years of actual experience as a practitioner and has passed an exam that tests the ability to think and assess the facts and apply the law in areas specific to Family Law.
