Do I need a board certified appellate attorney?
Board certified appeals lawyers like Jennifer S. Carroll are evaluated for professionalism and tested for expertise, according to The Florida Bar. It represents an objective measure you can rely on when selecting an appeals lawyer. It is your best opportunity to be certain that you receive top quality representation.
Board certification is The Florida Bar’s highest level of evaluation of whether an attorney has the needed experience and competency in their chosen area of law.
That means they have met the rigorous requirements set by the Florida Supreme Court, including demonstration of significant involvement in their areas of expertise and evaluation by peers of their ethics, character, professionalism, and competence. Board certification also includes continuing legal education and successful completion of a demanding six-hour examination.
Only about 7% of eligible members of The Florida Bar are board certified, according to The Florida Bar. Board certified lawyers “have taken extra steps to have their competence and experience evaluated,” The Florida Bar says.
Jennifer S. Carroll was among the first appellate attorneys in Florida to be board certified.
