What A Board-Certified Specialist Must Complete
When you have a specific health issue you visit a medical specialist. It is a similar process with law. When you have a legal issue that is specific to family law, you seek out a legal professional that is committed to high-quality legal advocacy in the family law field.
Board certification in North Carolina family law requires that an attorney have significant involvement with family law matters. The attorney must have at least five (5) years of practice in the area of family year that equates to at least 400 hours per year. Additionally, to become board certified an attorney must:
- Pass a peer review process
- Provide a list of 10 licensed and in good standing lawyers or judges who will vouch for the applicant
- Pass a six-hour long exam that includes short answers and essay questions
- Have completed at least forty-five (45) hours of continuing legal education credits in family law
Board certification takes years of knowledge, commitment, and skill. It is an important way to distinguish attorneys who are passionate about an area of law, enthusiastic to provide the best service possible for their clients, and are well equipped to do so. Each of those qualities describe Rebecca and the way she represents her clients.
