Notebook and Pen

The State Bar certifies legal specialists to:

  • Help the public identify attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in specialized fields of law

  • Encourage the maintenance and improvement of attorney competence in specialized fields of law

A certified specialist is more than just an attorney who practices in a particular area of law. A California attorney who is certified by the State Bar as a Family Law specialist must have:

  • Taken and passed a written examination in Family Law

  • Demonstrated a high level of experience in Family Law

  • Fulfilled ongoing education requirements

  • Been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with her work

Family law is complex and constantly changing – a certified specialist stays current with the law.
