Steve Samples is board-certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Only 1.3% of lawyers in Texas have been certified in this practice area.
All 110,000 attorneys in Texas are “fully licensed” in all areas of law, but only 1,437 (1.3%) are officially “certified” specialists in personal injury trial law. If the attorney does not say that he/she is board certified, then there is a great probability that he/she is not certified. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization is our state’s organization that certify Texas lawyers in a particular specialty. The Texas Supreme Court established this organization to help consumers identify lawyers with special competence and high ethical standards in various areas of law. It is difficult for attorneys to attain certification in an area of law. The requirements include a written examination, specific number of cases tried in Court, and recommendations from other lawyers and judges.
When picking a law firm, make sure it is headed by a personal injury specialist. When you need a will, or need to incorporate your new busines, choose lawyers that specialize in those areas. And when you have been injured through the fault of someone else, choose a firm headed by a lawyer board-certified in personal injury trial law.
