Awards
AV Preeminent (highest) Peer Review Rating
Martindale-Hubbell
A lawyer who receives a minimum threshold of qualifying responses from fellow attorneys can qualify for one of three prestigious Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings. The highest is AV Preeminent®. This rating signifies that a large number of the lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal knowledge, communication skills, and ethical standards.
Board Certified Specialist (BCS) in Workers' Compensation Law
The Florida Bar
The Florida Bar thoroughly evaluates all board-certified lawyers for credibility and expertise in a particular area of law, and professionalism and ethics in the practice of law. Board-certified attorneys must be recertified every five years. As part of the review process, BCS attorneys must demonstrate substantial involvement in the specialty of workers’ compensation law, including extensive trial experience.
Board Certified Specialist (BCS) in Workers' Compensation Law
The Florida Bar
Board certification is Florida’s official, independent determination of a lawyer’s expertise to practice in a specialty field of law. It is the gold standard for Florida lawyers, representing a recognition by a lawyer’s peers that they have attained a level of professional expertise in their chosen fields. Out of more than 100,000 lawyers eligible to practice law in Florida, fewer than 200 have been awarded BCS status in WC Law. “Evaluated for Professionalism, Tested for Expertise.”
