Under Florida law, you are not allowed to call yourself an expert in an area of law unless you are board certified. To be board certified, you need to take 60 continuing legal education credits devoted solely to bankruptcy in a 3 year period, which is twice as many credit hours as what general attorneys need to take. You also need to pass a rigorous exam to prove that you are worthy of being considered board certified.
