Board Certification

Board Certified, Labor and Employment Law, Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Of the more than 90,000 attorneys in Texas, less than 10% are Board Certified in any area of the law. Less than 1% are Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law. Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguished accomplishment. To become Board Certified, the attorney must demonstrate to the Board substantial experience in his area of the law and go through a vigorous background investigation where the Board contacts lawyers and Judges familiar with the attorney’s character and qualifications. The attorney must then pass a lengthy and difficult written examination. Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so.
