Board Certification

Less than half of 1% of all lawyers in Florida are Board Certified Criminal Trial
Experts, and Terence (“Terry”) M. Lenamon is one of them.

Established in 1982, Board Certification is the highest level of evaluation by the Florida Bar. Certified attorneys are recognized for their skilled proficiency in various areas of law, professionalism and ethics in practice, and their competency and experience in their practice of law.

Board Certification helps consumers identify specialists in the areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida.
Board Certified Florida bar members are the only Florida attorneys allowed to identify or advertise themselves as “Board Certified,” “Specialist,” “Expert” or to use the letters “B.C.S.” on business cards or letterhead, in legal directories or in advertising.

A lawyer who is a member in good standing of The Florida Bar and who meets the standards prescribed by the state’s Supreme Court may become board certified in one or more of the 24 certification fields.

Minimum requirements for certification are listed below; each area of certification may contain higher or additional standards.

  • A minimum of five years in law practice
  • A satisfactory showing of substantial involvement in the field of law for which certification is sought
  • A passing grade on the examination required of all applicants
  • Satisfactory peer review assessment of competence in the specialty field as well as character, ethics and professionalism in the practice of law
  • Satisfaction of the certification area’s continuing legal education requirements

Board certification is valid for five years, during which time the attorney must continue to practice law and attend Florida Bar-approved continuing legal education
courses. To be recertified, requirements similar to those for initial certification must be met. Not all qualified lawyers are certified, but those who are board certified have
taken the extra steps to have their competence and experience recognized.

“The Florida Bar’s board certification program sets high standards for lawyers who
aspire to further their professionalism credentials. Attorneys who earn Florida Bar board certification have demonstrated their expertise and commitment to
excellence in the practice of law.”
