Dorene Kuffer, the Senior Partner of the Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer, PC, is now officially a Certified Family Law Specialist in New Mexico.

Legal Specialization is a program identifying and certifying attorneys who have special competence in specific areas of practice. New Mexico's Legal Specialization program, specifically, is designed to improve the quality of legal services to the public and to provide opportunities and advantages to Board Certified Specialists.

Certified last December, becoming a specialist involved very specific criterion. Kuffer had to have worked as a licensed New Mexico attorney full time for a minimum of five years, have continued legal education (CLE) in approved courses or programs dealing exclusively with family law, and shown her qualification through peer reviews with references from other attorneys and judges, all the while practicing and being substantially involved in the practice of family law.

Lastly, Kuffer also needed to have substantial involvement and special competency in a family law practice, which must be more than 33.3% focused on family law. The Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer, PC, practices 98% family law full time.

Becoming a board certified specialist encourages attorneys to strive toward excellence and recognizes those attorneys who have met the rigorous standards. Those who become certified, after all, attain a respected position within the legal profession, one that provides expertise usually not found in legal generalists. It signifies a milestone of achievement. The procedure of becoming a board certified specialist is available to all qualified attorneys, without regard to ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or age.

"It’s an honor to be recognized by my peers, the judges and the State Bar in receiving this certification," said Kuffer. "Although I’ve been practicing for 30 years, this Certification of Specialization is confirmation I am recognized as an expert in Family Law. Maintaining the Certification is evidence I am staying in the forefront of the practice of Family Law."
