After being in a personal injury accident caused by a negligent person, you deserve to be compensated for your injury-related suffering and expenses. In order to ensure that you receive this compensation, however, you must first be sure to retain an attorney with the training and experience to win your case. How can you be sure that your lawyer is up to your standards? At the firm of Coontz Cochran, we have been recognized for our capabilities and success in numerous ways, one of which is evident by the existence of a Board Certified lawyer on our team.
In order to become Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, an attorney must complete a list of tasks to apply and must also pass an examination. To apply, the lawyer must have dedicated at least 25% of their practice to the area of interest for the past 3 years. They must have tried at least 10 contested civil cases, 5 of which must have been personal injury. These are just a few of the application steps. The certification process also involves references and peer reviews.
As for the examination, approved applicants must undergo a day-long exam covering knowledge, skills and subject matter related to their area of interest. Only after they pass the test will an attorney be considered Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Attorney Greg Coontz has received this certification and specializes in Personal Injury Trial Law, and is also Board Certified in Civil Trial Law.
