About California Criminal Law Bar Certification
The State Bar of California provides a certification program for attorneys
working in 11 different areas of practice, and it is one of the oldest
such programs in the nation. It offers attorneys the chance to demonstrate
high levels of competence through an extensive process of evaluations.
In order to be eligible, the lawyer must be an active member of the state
bar and must have spent at least 25 percent of his or her time working
in the field of specialization over the past 3 years.
The attorney takes a written examination to test legal knowledge and skill
in the specialty field and must be able to demonstrate a high level of
practical experience. It is also necessary to fulfill ongoing education
requirements and to receive favorable evaluations from other attorneys
and judges who are familiar with the attorney's work. Only those few
attorneys who meet all these requirements can legally advertise themselves
as being certified.
Hire a Criminal Lawyer with Proven Knowledge, Experience & Skill
By hiring a board-certified
criminal defense lawyer to represent you on charges such as
DUI or a
drug crime, you send a clear message to the prosecutor that you are serious about
getting the most favorable disposition possible in your case. Given that
the qualifications are so rigorous and that so few lawyers have become
certified in criminal law, other attorneys recognize what board certification
means in terms of legal ability and dedication to results. For example,
a prosecutor facing a board-certified defense attorney may be more willing
to agree to a favorable plea bargain or might even choose to drop the
charges rather than risk losing the case at trial.
