CALIFORNIA CERTIFIED FAMILY LAW SPECIALIST
How is a Certified Family Law Specialist different from a General Practice Attorney? A Certified Family Law Specialist must be certified by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. The California Certified Family Law Specialist must pass an extensive written examination on the subject of family law, be approved by a peer and judicial review process, and show proficiency in the area by demonstrating extensive experience handling a sufficient number of family law cases with varying degrees of complexity. Marshall W. Waller, lead litigator of Feinberg & Waller, is a California Certified Family Law Specialist, so certified by the Board of Legal Specialization, State Bar of California. In addition, he has written a guidebook for other attorneys who are studying to become California Certified Family Law Specialists.
Not every family law attorney can claim this credential; it is somewhat similar to a Board Certified surgeon. To become a California Certified Family Law Specialist, Marshall W. Waller had to meet the following requirements: engaging in the practice of family law for a minimum of 25% of his practice during the past 5 years; being an active member of the State Bar of California; passing a written exam; demonstrating a high level of experience in family law by meeting specific task and experience requirements; completing at least 45 hours of continuing education in family law; and, being favorably evaluated by judges and other attorneys familiar with his work.
