Nick is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Construction Law. According to the Board, why you should hire a board certified lawyer is as follows:
Why Choose Board Certified: Mark of Excellence. Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment. Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law.
A Distinguished Few. There are more than 100,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. Only 7,450 are Board Certified. In the Construction Law specialty field, only approximately 83 lawyers in the State of Texas are board certified, of which Nick is one.
Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of law.
Moreover, Board Certification is not a one-time event. It requires an ongoing involvement in the specialty area which is periodically substantiated with references from peers in that field. It also requires annual professional refreshment through TBLS approved, continuing legal education course work to stay abreast of current trends in law.
