    As a lawyer who gets 100% of his cases from referrals, I can write with some authority that the best sources to learn who you should hire are other lawyers. Clients tend to have opinions based on results. Lawyers, judges and other people who work in the legal system know that a lawyer can kick the **** out of another lawyer all over the courtroom and yet lose the hearing or the case. A case is only as good as the facts. A good lawyer can color and massage the facts, but the facts cannot be changed in a fundamental fashion.

    So you want to rely upon the opinions of those who know of the abilities of the particular lawyers in question and not just their results. Don't let the whole blind squirrel finds an acorn maxim dictate who you hire.

    Thus, a good place to start in ascertaining who to hire is by looking at who are the board certified lawyers in that field. Does that mean a non-board certified lawyer isn't excellent? No, but unless you get the opportunity to talk with a few different members of the local Inns of Court chapter in Tallahassee you're not going to get a really good opinion as to who you should hire.

    Good response Poop. I know there are lawyers on this board that is why I asked. I don't know their areas. I guess another question, are you technically a lawyer if you are not board certified?

    Since Tradition is in HR and it is an HR issue, He would likely know which lawyer he would not want showing up at his door. :)

    I welcome any and all information.

    Yes, you are a lawyer if you are not board certified.

    Please explain to us Laymen. So if you have a degree you are considered a lawyer? or can anyone be a self proclaimed lawyer? Maybe I am confusing Board Certified with passed the bar examine.

    You have to be a member of the state bar. To become a member of the state bar you must undergo an exhaustive background investigation for fitness and then pass a two day exam (it is the most stressful thing I've ever done).

    In the old days, you could become a lawyer without being a member of the state bar and without going to law school. Now, to my knowledge, there is no state where you can a lawyer without being a member of the state bar. Last time I looked, Wisconsin still permitted people to become lawyers without attending law school if they person had served a multi-year apprenticeship under another lawyer.

    It's an additional certification above and beyond mere licensure. Board Certification means that you've demonstrated sufficient expertise in a particular area of law as determined by other experts.
