Attorneys Adam Balkan and Leah Charbonnet are board-certified civil trial attorneys. When you are seeking representation, there is a significant difference between a typical attorney and one who is board certified by The Florida Bar. Do you know the difference that board certification makes?

Achieving board certification status by the Florida Bar means that the lawyer has a high level of knowledge, skill, expertise and proficiency in a specific field of law. In Florida, only board-certified lawyers may identify themselves by using these terms or the board certification logo. The Supreme Court of Florida established Florida’s board certification program so that consumers can identify qualified legal specialists. Board certification’s stringent requirements for legal expertise and professional conduct give the public objective standards by which to evaluate attorneys.

A Board-Certified Civil Trial Attorney has to meet certain standards, conduct a certain number of trials, pass a board certification exam, and obtain CLE credits and recommendations from other attorneys and judges.

Attorneys certified by The Florida Bar have been evaluated as to their ability and experience in their practice fields and professionalism within the legal community.
