  • Practicing law for a a minimum of five years.
  • Demonstrating substantial involvement in the field of law they are seeking certification in
  • Passing a peer review in competency, character, ethics and professionalism

Only a lawyer who is board-certified can refer to himself or herself as a specialist or expert in a particular area of law. Board-certified attorneys can also use the initials "B.C.S" (for board certified specialist) after their name.
