A Board Certified lawyer means experience, dedication, and ethics. For a Personal Injury lawyer, Board Certification is a mark of excellence. Patients would never trust a doctor lacking Board Certification with their care. The same discretion is necessary in retaining a lawyer. Victims should retain a Board Certified lawyer when it comes to who they trust to seek justice post-accident. The problem is, many potential clients don’t know that lawyers can even be Board Certified.
This lack of publicly available knowledge is unfathomable to the country’s top lawyers. Doctors and dentists receive Board Certification before they can care for a single patient. For those who practice Personal Injury Law this very important distinction is what separates “paper pushers” from the “case winners”. “Case winners” receive large settlements and verdicts regularly. Lack of Board Certification can be what’s standing between clients and the maximum amount of compensation.
