FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) announced in early 2017 Carl David Ceder received Board Certification in Criminal Law for the 2016 examination and application process. Carl David Carl D. Ceder practices criminal law and DWI defense in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex (and all surrounding counties), with a particular emphasis on Dallas and Collin County. Board Certification is a voluntary designation program certifying Texas attorneys in 22 specific areas of law. Board Certified attorneys must be licensed for at least five years, devote a required percentage of practice to a specialty area for at least three years, attend continuing education seminars, pass an evaluation by fellow lawyers and judges and pass a 6-hour written examination.

“This program is important for the public and for attorneys in our state. We’re focused on enhancing the quality of legal representation in an increasingly competitive marketplace. I’ve been involved with this program for more than 30 years and am continually impressed with TBLS members’ accomplishments,” said David Dickson, Chairman of the TBLS Board of Directors.

Carl David Ceder is a 2003 graduate of The Red McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin earning his Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Finance in less than 3 years. He is a 2007 graduate of The University of Houston Law Center, receiving his Juris Doctor Degree (JD) in 27 months. Carl David Ceder has practiced criminal defense literally since the first day he obtained his law license. He has been the owner/operator of The CEDER LAW FIRM since 2009, was licensed by the State Bar of Texas in May of 2008.

He is very proud of many of the successful results achieved as an attorney for his clients, and takes pride that his entire practice has been devoted to defending the citizen accused. Carl was fortunate enough in having been able to try a criminal jury trial, resulting in a “Not Guilty” verdict, literally within weeks of obtaining his license. He has remained focused on achieving positive results for all those he has represented ever since. Achieving this "Board Certification" designation is especially satisfactory for him, in that it is reflective of the culmination of years of dedication, hard work, and a continuous commitment to his craft in trying to be the best advocate possible for those he represents in court.

The State Bar website lists the statistics as of 2016 that there are approximately 98,671 individuals licensed to practice law in the State of Texas. Among these, only 857 are “Board Certified in Criminal Law,” meaning less than 1% percent total of all licensed attorneys in Texas are “Board Certified in Criminal Law” by The Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Thus, only a very small minority of individuals hold this prestigious designation, and it is a very high honor and the “Gold Standard” of achievement for attorneys practicing criminal law.

Board Certification is offered in 22 specific areas of law to attorneys. Initial certification is valid for five years. To remain certified attorneys and paralegals must apply for recertification every five years and meet substantial involvement, peer review and continuing legal education requirements for their specialty area.
