Benefits of Hiring a California Certified Family Law Specialist

With decisions that can potentially affect you for the rest of your life, the pressure in choosing the right attorney to represent you in a divorce proceeding can be overwhelming and challenging.

Fortunately, the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization has made it easier for clients to get the assurance they need to know that their attorney is truly an expert in the realm of family law.

When you hire a family attorney who is also a California Certified Family Law Specialist, also known as a “CFLS”, you can be assured that you are being represented by someone who has experience and expertise to handle all aspects of your divorce.

The process to become a CFLS is rigorous. To become a CFLS, an attorney must be certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization or an organization who has a certification program (whose requirements are equivalent to the State Bar’s program) that has been accredited by the State Bar. The attorney must demonstrate proficiency in the area of family law by completing the requisite experience and education, as well as taking and passing a written examination in the field of family law.

After passing the specialist examination and becoming certified, CFLS must continue to demonstrate a high level of experience and skill in the field of family law, fulfill the ongoing legal education requirements and be favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges who are familiar with their work.

If you are looking for an attorney who has the training, experience and expertise to handle various aspects of your divorce, hiring an attorney who is a California CFLS is your best option.
