What is a certified attorney specialist?

The attorneys who have graduated from an accredited law school, cleared an intensive examination, and attended continuing legal education courses as required by the Supreme Court of Ohio, are given the license to practice law in Ohio.

The attorneys who give a large part and time of their practice to a specific field of the law may choose to go beyond these requirements, in order to earn specialty certification.

The meaning of this is stated more clearly in the following points:

·A substantial involvement on continuous basis in a particular field of law has been shown by the attorney, meaning they must devote at least 25 percent of their practice to an area of law

· Submission of five individual attested references evidencing their competency in the specialty field

·They should have earned a minimum 36 hours of intermediate or advanced continuing legal education credits in the specialty field during the past three years as part of the continuing legal education credits required by all attorneys

· They should be under a good standing with the Supreme Court of Ohio.

· Maintaining a minimum professional liability insurance coverage, to manifest financial responsibility.

Attorneys who are holders of specialty certification must be recertified at least every seven years and must earn a minimum of 12 continuing legal education credits in the specialty area every two years.

Who certifies attorneys as specialist?

A Commission established by The Supreme Court of Ohio on Certification of Attorneys as Specialistsidentifies specialists and

Set minimum standards necessary for earning a specialist certificate.

To earn an approval from the court, agencies providing ongoing education for lawyers may submit their certification programs to the court. Once approved and accredited by the Supreme Court of Ohio, these agencies can then offer their certification programs to Ohio attorneys who wish to become specialists in those particular fields of law. The largest certifying agency in Ohio is The Ohio State Bar Association

What are the specialty areas among the areas of law as approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio?

The areas of law approved for specialty certification cover the administrative agency law; appellate law; business bankruptcy law; business law; commercial and real property law; civil trial advocacy; consumer bankruptcy law; creditors' rights/debt collection; criminal trial advocacy; elder law; estate planning, trust and probate law; family relations law; federal taxation law; insurance coverage law; labor and employment law; residential real property law; and workers' compensation law.

Some of these areas may yet be pending to have accredited available specialty programs, and some have been combined. Future additions of other fields of law may be done in the Supreme Court's list.

How to know if an attorney is a certified specialist?

Business cards, letterhead or advertisements must be checked for a special designation that reads "certified by the Ohio State Bar Association" or another reputed agency. Directly asking the attorneys you are contacting, if they are a certified specialist or not is another way.
