WHY CHOOSE A BOARD-CERTIFIED LAWYER
Tampa, Florida, Bankruptcy and Consumer
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 attorneys are recognized experts
and specialists in this area of law. They
are not general practitioners who dabble in
