Board Certification - Civil Trial Law
Attaining Board Certification in Civil Trial Law means that the certified attorney has been recognized for demonstrating a high level of professionalism in all areas of civil controversy before state courts, federal courts, administrative agencies and arbitrators. In addition to the actual pre-trial and trial process, "civil trial" includes evaluating, handling, and resolving civil controversies prior to the initiation of suit as well as the full course of appellate processes.
By acquiring this certification, the Board recognizes Ron’s high competence in Civil Trial Law. The review process involves a rigorous investigation by the Board, including query of Judges before whom the attorney has practiced, as well as fellow lawyers who have been on the opposite side of cases, for comments on character and skill of the attorney seeking certification. Following the background investigation, a difficult examination is administered. Upon successful completion of the examination, the attorney becomes Board Certified and must maintain this level of excellence by attending additional continued legal education courses each year far exceeding the requirement of the average licensed attorney.
