Why Hire a Board-Certified Attorney?

Highly Qualified to Handle Your Family Law Case

Family law matters aren't just simple procedures or paperwork to be filled out - in these matters, someone's life is at stake. One wrong move could cause the loss of custody of a child, cost tens of thousands of dollars, or force the sale of a hard-earned business. You wouldn't hire a doctor straight out of medical school to perform brain surgery, and the same standard should hold true with family law representation. Hire excellent representation for your case. If you are facing a family law matter, retain a Westlake Village divorce lawyer from the offices of Richard Ross Associates.

Our firm has represented countless clients in cases ranging from divorce to domestic partnership and from child support to domestic violence. One of the many reasons why you should choose our firm is that Attorney Richard Ross is a Board Certified Family Law Specialist with the California Board of Legal Specialization. Many attorneys practice in family law, but few have met the criteria or undergone the rigorous testing to become certified by the Board. By choosing to hire Attorney Ross, you can have the personalized counsel and representation of one of the most skilled and experienced family law attorneys in the county.

What does it take to become Board Certified?

An attorney who carries the designation of Certified Family Law Specialist has undergone a rigorous certification process and has met specific qualifications. A board-certified lawyer has:

  • At least 5 years of experience practicing family law
  • Acted in the role of principal attorney in the completion of more than 30 family law cases
  • Fulfilled a minimum of 45 hours of continuing family law legal education
  • Completed a legal specialization examination, similar to a mini bar exam focusing on family law
  • Received peer recommendations from other attorneys who work in family law

In addition to all of these requirements for becoming board certified, a Certified Family Law Specialist must undergo re-examination every five years. When choosing a family law specialist, a client can be assured that they are choosing an attorney who is current with the latest laws and is well respected within the family law community, which is comprised not only of fellow family law attorneys but also judges. Richard Ross Associates can provide an attorney in whom you can place your trust and confidence. Speak with a member of our support staff today to set up your initial consultation!
