What Does "Board Certified" Mean?

Retain a Distinguished Riverside Criminal Defense Attorney: (951) 291-0105

When you are charged with a crime, one of the first things you may notice is that you have seemingly endless choices for defense representation. Many of these attorneys can promise service and results, but few of them have actually been board certified as a criminal law specialist by The State Bar of California. Our founding attorney, Paul Grech, is one of those attorneys.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, get counsel you know has the knowledge and resources to navigate your case. Contact our firm at (951) 291-0105 today.

What is "Board Certified?"

The State Bar of California has its own Board of Legal Specialization. For an attorney to be recognized as a specialist in their area of the law, they must apply and be tested by The Board of Legal Specialization. Along with an examination, there are several requirements and considerations the board will take into account when evaluating an attorney.

Board certified attorneys must display:

  • Impeccable ethics
  • Valuable experience
  • Extensive and continuing education
  • Superb examination scores
  • Overall excellence in their field

If an attorney candidate displays all of the following, then they may become a board certified specialist. These attorneys represent the very best the bar membership has to offer and the highest standard of legal knowledge and insight in their given practice area.
