Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 04, 2013
California Family Law Attorneys of Yanez & Associates launched a video titled, “What is a California Certified Family Law Specialist?”. The founding attorney Bettina Yanez explains in the video how the title of “Specialist” is awarded to an attorney.
Attorney Yanez states that attorneys cannot refer or advertise themselves as specialist/experts without first being certified by an authorized organization, such as the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.
A family law attorney who becomes a Certified Specialist has typically put in years of real practice and has also successfully passed an examination that tests the attorney's aptitude.
