Becoming an Immigration Specialist

     The highest recognition of an attorney’s expertise in a particular field is Board Certification by the Florida Bar, the organization of the state’s attorneys. Without Board Certification, an attorney cannot call herself a specialist in the field of immigration and nationality law.
     On March 12, this upcoming Friday, I will be taking the written examination for Board Certification in Tampa, Florida. It is an all day test.
     Before I was allowed to take the examination, five attorneys who are neither relatives nor current associates or partners provided information on my behalf. It was a requirement that they attest to my reputation for substantial involvement and competence in the field of immigration and nationality law as well as my character, ethics, and reputation for professionalism.
    In addition, an applicant must have been engaged in the practice of law for at least 5 years preceding the date of application and demonstrate completion of 50 credit hours of approved continuing legal education in the subject during the 3 year period prior to applying.
     I thank everyone for their support this far. Cross fingers, light candles.
