Why is it Important to Hire a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer?

Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer:

  1. TRIALS: Board certified lawyers must be lead counsel in at least ten contested civil cases; five of the ten cases must have been contested personal injury jury trials. Furthermore, for attorneys to be recertified they must spend at least 25% their time practicing personal injury trial law in Texas.
  2. REFERENCES: An attorney who is board certified in personal injury trial law must have five references to attest to their competence in the specialization. In addition, the references must include at least one judge and opposing counsel.

    *When Steve Kuzmich was certified by the TBLS the requirement was ten references and has been five for each recertification period since.

  3. LEGAL HOURS:  A board certified lawyer must complete at least 100 hours of continuing legal education in personal injury trial law for every certification period.
