“BOARD CERTIFICATION”—-WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Board Certification recognizes attorneys’ special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law, and professionalism and ethics in practice. Board Certification is the Florida Bar’s highest level of evaluation of the competency and experience of attorneys in the 26 areas of law approved for certification by the Florida Supreme Court. For example, in order to become Board Certified, eligible applicants must demonstrate they have practiced a minimum of five (5) years in their chosen field; show “substantial involvement” in their area; demonstrate ‘peer review’ evaluations of their abilities from colleagues, opposing counsel, and Judges; pass an additional examination demonstrating expertise in both State and Federal practice, and maintain a rigorous commitment to Continuing Legal Education.
Each Board Certified lawyer must apply for re-certification every five (5) years.
Jay Kirschner first was Board Certified in Criminal Trial Practice in 1994, and has been re-certified four (4( consecutive times since then.
Only Seven percent (7%) of eligible Florida Bar members are Board Certified. And because of the stringent requirements of Board Certification, there are many lawyers who are not even eligible to apply. So the actual percentage of Board Certified Lawyers is significantly less than than seven (7) percent of all lawyers.
In addition to being Board Certified, Jay is rated “AV Preemninent”, assessed at 5.0 out of 5.0, by Martindale Hubbell, the nation’s oldest and most respected lawyer rating and referral service, and by the “AVVO” legal directory as having a maximum rating of “10.0 out of 10.0”. ( AVVO utilizes a rating model that considers information in the lawyer’s profile, as well as information collected from public sources, e.g., state bar associations and lawyer websites).
