What Does Florida Bar Board Certification in Criminal Trial Law Mean?


Maybe you have never needed the services of an attorney before; but now you do. Obviously, you want an attorney who can handle your particular legal situation, one who has experience and expertise in the area of law relating to your legal needs.  You need a lawyer that The Florida Bar has "Evaluated for Professionalism, Tested for Expertise."


To assist you in finding such a lawyer, the Supreme Court of Florida directed The Florida Bar to offer a "Board Certification" program for Attorneys. The program is designed to help the public make an informed decision when seeking and selecting a lawyer.  


While all lawyers are allowed to advertise, only certified attorneys are allowed to identify themselves as "Florida Bar Board Certified Expert." Certification is the highest level of recognition granted by The Florida Bar. This status represents the utmost competency and experience of attorneys in the areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida.


A lawyer who is a member in good standing of The Florida Bar and who meets the standards prescribed by the state's Supreme Court, may become a "Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer." Certified lawyers in criminal trial law are involved in investigation, evaluation, pleading, discovery, taking of testimony, presentation of evidence, and argument of jury and non jury cases.


Every lawyer certified in criminal trial law has practiced law on a full-time basis for at least five years. To become certified the lawyer must have handled 25 criminal cases with at least 20 jury trials, tried to verdict, at least 15 of which involved a felony. Ten trials must have been tried with the lawyer as lead counsel. Each certified lawyer has had substantial involvement, 30% or more, in the practice of criminal trial law during the 3 years preceding application.


Each certified lawyer must also have passed peer review, completed 45 hours of continuing legal education within 3 years preceding application and has passed written examination demonstrating their knowledge, skills, and proficiency in the field of criminal trial law to justify the representation of special competence.
