Distinguished Divorce Attorney Serving Pearland

Have you made the hard decision to terminate your marriage? If you are contemplating divorce, you should not rely on a mediocre attorney who does not have experience and proficiency in the field of family law. Instead, you should look to one who is Board Certified in their specific area of law. In the state of Texas, only 7,000 of the 70,000 attorneys are board certified. Furthermore, less than 800 of that number are Board Certified in family law.

The Texas Board of Legal Specialization recognizes attorneys who are distinguished in their particular field of law and demonstrate extensive knowledge and proficiency. Family law attorneys who have earned the recognition of board certification in Texas manifest upstanding ethics in their practice and are able to handle a wide range of cases.

Who receives board certification?

Board certification means that an attorney has been tested and proven to have special competence in their field of law, which in this case is that of family law. My firm can use this experience to protect your rights and fight on your behalf toward a positive case result.

When a lawyer is board certified, they receive the right to publicly represent themselves as specialists within that field. They are the only ones who can in fact do so by the State Bar of Texas. The designation as a Board-Certified attorney sets him or her apart from others within the legal community. It represents the lawyer to the public as one who is committed to excellence.

The process of becoming Board Certified is voluntary and can occur after an attorney has demonstrated solid experience and involvement in a wide range of family law cases.

Some of the areas of family law include:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Division of property
  • Alimony

At Dennis M. Slate, Attorney at Law, I have taken this step in my legal career and have become Board Certified in the area of family law.

How I Became Board Certified

Obtaining status as a specialist in the field of family law is not an easy task to achieve. It requires continual renewal through the re-certification process that will need to be completed every five years.

To obtain acknowledgement, the attorney would have had to fulfill the following requirements:

  • Have been licensed to practice law for at least five years
  • Devoted a large portion of their practice to issues involving family law for a minimum of three years
  • Attended a substantial number of continuing legal education seminars to remain up-to-date on changing laws
  • Have been recommended by peers in the field of family law
  • Passed a long written examination

When you are looking for a Pearland divorce lawyer to represent you, it is important to select one who has proven him or herself as a family lawyer. A lawyer who is Board Certified can be counted on to strategically handle your case and safeguard your rights. If you choose to hire my firm, you can count on the experience I offer because I have been recognized by the State Bar of Texas as a specialist in family law matters.

Do not hesitate to receive the high-quality representation that my firm offers. Contact my firm today for quality assistance from an experienced Pearland divorce attorney!
