Tampa, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2016 -- Stann Givens, the founding attorney at Givens Givens Sparks has been re-certified in marital and family law through 2021. He has held board certification in these fields since 1991.
More than 100,000 attorneys practice law throughout the state of Florida, but only about 4,800 have earned board certifications – a little over 300 of those are board certified in marital and family law.
The Florida Bar began certifying attorneys in 1982 in order to help the general public choose a suitable attorney. The certification process is entirely voluntary, but attorneys must have practiced law for at least five years, shown a substantial involvement in their field, pass a stringent examination, undergo a series of peer review assessments, continue to educate themselves in their chosen field, and receive approval from the Florida Supreme Court in order to qualify.
“Stann’s leadership in the Tampa family law community is celebrated,” said Robert Sparks, managing attorney at Givens Givens Sparks. “And his continued dedication to the community has solidified his excellent reputation with his clients and peers alike.”
Stann has worked to raise the bar for excellence in the fields of marital and family law ever since he first started practicing more than four decades ago. Through his tireless efforts, Stann has earned national recognition as one of the top lawyers in Florida and the United States, and was voted as 2016’s Family Law “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers in Tampa, FL. He has also been voted to the list of "Best Lawyers in America" since 1998, and has been included in the list of “Super Lawyers” since 2006 among numerous other awards.
