The city of Tampa, Florida is home to many well-qualified accident lawyers. Even just a cursory search online or in the Yellow Pages will confirm this. However, only a small fraction of the Tampa accident lawyer population has achieved the highest level of evaluation provided by The Florida Bar – board certification. Board certification encompasses 24 distinct areas of law, and is currently possessed by a mere seven percent of all lawyers in the state. At Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa, the majority of our firm’s accident lawyers are certified in civil trial law, making them exceptionally qualified to handle all stages of private civil disputes, including car accident litigation.
How, exactly, does a lawyer become board certified, and how does board certification benefit consumers? Only lawyers who have practiced for a minimum of five years are eligible, and must demonstrate a “substantial involvement” in the field of law for which they seek to be certified. At Clark & Martino, P.A., our board-certified accident lawyers also had to:
- Pass a specialized exam
- Stay current on all continuing education requirements
- Obtain peer reviews that reflect positively on their competence, character, and overall professionalism in the practice of law
Contact Clark & Martino, P.A. today if you have been injured in an auto accident. Because our accident lawyers are board certified, you can trust that we have the skill and experience necessary to handle your case effectively.
