Why Board Certification matters

Austin, Texas board certified family law attorney

David Todd is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Board certification indicates extensive experience with and knowledge of a particular legal specialty. Attorneys must meet strict practical experience requirements and apply for permission to take the certification exam. If approved as qualified, the attorney must take and pass a full-day exam to become board certified. Less than 10% of Texas attorneys are board certified in any area of law, and less than 1% of Texas attorneys are board certified in family law. Board certified attorneys are the only lawyers allowed by the State Bar of Texas to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of law.
