Why should you choose a Certified Legal Specialist — Family to represent you?

An attorney who has achieved certification as a specialist in any practice area demonstrates his or her commitment to the highest standards of legal competence. Certified specialists must renew their standing every five years and keep their practice focused primarily in the particular field of expertise.

All family law attorneys must have significant knowledge and expertise in other legal areas including tax law, estate planning, bankruptcy, social security law, and the workings of state, federal, and private pension plans and other employment benefits. Many California family law practitioners are also familiar with the laws in other states and countries, because so often people live or come from or have property in other states or countries.

Given that custody of children is often a central focus of a family law case, family law practitioners need an understanding of child development and the emotional and psychological concerns of families. Part of the CLS-F certification requires education in psychology and counseling.

An engaged family law attorney must devote a significant amount of time and effort to stay informed in all of these areas in order to effectively represent the family law client.

Choosing legal representation can be difficult. Often clients find themselves relying on advertising, directory listings, or perhaps referrals. When your attorney is Certified Legal Specialist - Family, you can be assured he or she is dedicated to excellence in this field, and is willing to devote resources to attaining and maintaining the highest standard of legal knowledge and ability.

Certified Legal Specialist — Family have access to a large network of experienced practitioners and to publications and continuing education programs that can constantly enhance and enlarge their skills and knowledge of an ever-evolving area of the law.
