Certification is one of the most important steps in a lawyer’s professional life. As part of their commitment to maintaining high standards in their practice, partners Mitch Panter, Brett Panter and David Sampedro have all achieved board certification by the Florida Bar.Continuing education is extremely important, especially for our partners. They are passionate about their careers and about helping people, and they do everything in their power to maintain their high standards of professionalism and knowledge. Board certification is the highest level of evaluation for competency. Only 7 percent of eligible Florida Bar members are board-certified. A board-certified lawyer must be in good standing with the Florida Bar and meet the standards of the state’s Supreme Court.Board certification recognizes an attorney’s special knowledge, skills, proficiency in law and professionalism in practice. Lawyers with certification have been peer-reviewed for competence, as well as character, integrity and professionalism. Lawyers who are board-certified must satisfy their certification area’s continuing legal education requirements for recertification every five years.Being certified means we are measured not only by our own standards, but by the objective standards provided by the board and the Florida Bar. Our clients can rest easy with the knowledge that our competence and experience have been evaluated and recognized as impeccable.
