Only Hire a Board Certified Florida Divorce Attorney
(provided by Stann W. Givens, Esq.)

Divorce is a stressful and difficult time. All of your assets and the welfare of your children are at stake. You don't want just any lawyer to be responsible for helping you in these important matters.

The Florida Bar has a system for identifying those lawyers who have demonstrated particular expertise in specialized areas of the law. One of those areas is marital and family law.

The Bar first requires a showing that the Florida divorce lawyer has a substantial number of trials in the role as lead counsel in divorce matters. Then the Bar conducts a background check regarding the lawyer's ethics and competence by seeking opinions from judges and other lawyers who have been involved with the lawyer in trial. After that, there is a difficult, day-long exam on case law, statutes and rules of procedure involved in divorce.

Out of 65,000 lawyers in the state of Florida, only about 300 lawyers have qualified to be Board Certified in Marital and Family Law. By hiring a firm that has Board Certified lawyers, you are assured that you are getting an expert divorce lawyer.

Bottom Line: Only hire a Board Certified Marital and Family Lawyer to represent you in your divorce.
