If you have suffered a serious personal injury or loss of a loved one due to the negligence of another party, you should hire an experienced and skilled personal injury trial lawyer, to represent you. Consider hiring a trial attorney, such as Sheadyn R. Rogers, who is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Mark of Excellence
According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS), Board Certification is a "mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment."
Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has "substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law."
A Distinguished Few
There are more than 70,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. According to the TBLS website, only 7,225 are currently Board Certified in a special area of the law, and of that amount, only 1,606 are currently Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law.
Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the "highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of law."
Furthermore, Board Certification is not a one-time event. It requires an ongoing involvement in the speciality area which is periodically substantiated with references from peers in that field. It also requires annual professional refreshment through TBLS approved, continuing legal education course work to stay abreast of current trends in law.
