Tampa, Florida, Bankruptcy and Consumer Law Attorneys
Many lawyers handle bankruptcy and other consumer debt issues. But only a few — like G. Donald Golden of The Golden Law Group — go on to receive Board Certification in Consumer Bankruptcy from the American Board of Certification.
What separates a board-certified bankruptcy lawyer from the pack? A lot. To achieve and maintain board-certification, an attorney needs to:
- Dedicate at least 75 percent of his or her practice to bankruptcy law. Bankruptcy must be the overwhelming focus of the attorney's career.
- Pass a rigorous, two-day exam covering all areas of bankruptcy law.
- Litigate (as lead counsel) at least 20 disputes related to bankruptcy that had to be settled in court.
- Take 60 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses specifically on the topic of bankruptcy law. These classes help lawyers stay up to date on new developments in the law. Lawyers who are not board certified only need 30 hours of CLE credit to maintain their license to practice.
In short, the board-certified bankruptcy lawyer focuses almost exclusively on bankruptcy, has demonstrated comprehensive knowledge of bankruptcy law, has extensive experience handling bankruptcy disputes in court, and stays current with new developments in bankruptcy law.
Board-certified bankruptcy attorneys are recognized experts and specialists in this area of law. They are not general practitioners who dabble in bankruptcy law.
