    There are over 70,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. Only 7,000 have earned the right to be publicly recognized as Board Certified specialists in one of 20 select areas of law. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization was established in 1974 by the Supreme Court of Texas at the request of State Bar of Texas and is the only governing board authorized to certify attorneys in legal specialty areas.

    An attorney who is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Family Law must have prepared for and participated in the contested trial of cases involving matters, such as divorce, property division, child custody, child support, adoption, paternity or other matrimonial matters.

    To remain certified, an attorney must apply for recertification every five years and meet practice, peer review and continuing legal education requirements for the specialty field.

    The consumer can identify a Family Law Board Certified attorney by asking to view their Certificate of Special Competence awarded by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
