Congratulations to Attorney Jed Silverman on his recent Board Certification in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization! Out of more than 70,000 licensed attorneys practicing in Texas, only 10 percent have been recognized as Board Certified specialists in one of 21 areas of the law. This distinguishing accomplishment is a true mark of excellence, recognizing Jed as an attorney with the highest level of commitment to excellence in the area of criminal law.
Established by the Supreme Court of Texas in 1974, The Texas Board of Legal Specialization is the only governing board authorized to certify lawyers in specialty legal areas. Only lawyers who earn certification with the Board are allowed by the State Bar of Texas to represent themselves as specialists in their area of law.
Attorneys become eligible to earn a certification after at least five years in practice and at least three years of experience in the area of specialization. In addition, candidates must furnish at least 10 qualified, vetted references, provide extensive documentation of their experience, and pass a comprehensive daylong exam.
Becoming Board Certified is not just a one-time event: it also requires ongoing involvement in the field of specialty, substantiated by references from other top lawyers in the field. Furthermore, it requires continuing professional education and growth through legal course work to keep them current on the latest information and trends.
