Less than 2% of Florida's 87,000 lawyers are board-certified in civil trial law. Civil trial law is the field of law that addresses litigation of civil disputes in all areas of the law before state and federal courts, administrative agencies and arbitrators.
While any lawyer can advertise on television, on the Internet, or on a billboard, not all lawyers are board-certified. A board-certified civil trial lawyer has the experience and the expertise to take your case to trial when a favorable settlement cannot be reached.
