How Can a Certified Criminal Law Specialist Help?

A legal specialist is backed by the California State Bar. The certification credits not only their ability, but also their discipline and commitment to improving their practice. This means the Bar believes they will effectively advise clients, protecting their rights and freedoms, in addition to offering aggressive defense through every stage of the case. To receive this certification, a lawyer must be willing to work beyond their basic training and continually strive to better themselves as a legal professional.

Becoming a certified specialist takes more than just knowledge or education. An attorney must be skilled, with the ability to stand up to even the most experienced judges and lawyers. When an attorney becomes a "specialist," they do much more than just focus on a specific area of law.

The California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization requires criminal law attorneys to do several things before becoming certified, including:

  • Pass the written examination in Criminal Law
  • Display a great amount of experience in Criminal Law cases
  • Complete continuing education requirements
  • Receive favorable evaluations from other attorneys and judges

By fulfilling all of these requirements, Attorney Dicks has become a Certified Criminal Law Specialist.
