Why Choose a Certified Family Law Specialist?
A Certified Family Law Specialist (“CFLS”) is someone who has passed a rigorous examination and has met strict practice requirements to earn that title. A CFLS is recognized by the State Bar of California for high competence through evaluations by a panel of experts. An attorney who wishes to qualify as a Certified Specialist has to demonstrate a high level of experience and dedication to the practice of family law. CFLS is a demonstrated commitment to the highest standards of legal competence.
Because child custody is often part of a divorce proceeding, family law attorneys practitioners must also understand child development and other topics touching on emotional and psychological issues. Part of the certification requirement involves psychological and counseling education.
Not all attorneys who advertise as practicing family law dedicate a significant portion of their practice to this highly complex and challenging area. A good family law attorney must devote a significant amount of time, money, and energy to stay informed and educated in order to effectively represent the family law client. Working with a Certified Family Law Specialist, you know that he or she has taken the time and dedicated the resources to maintain the highest standard of legal knowledge and ability.
