What is a Family Law Specialist?

Williams Law Group limits its practice exclusively to helping individuals with their family law issues. Both of the attorneys at the Williams Law Group are certified as specialists in the field of family law by the North Carolina State Bar. This certification lets you know that your case is being handled by an attorney competent to handle complex family law cases. See Below taken from the North Carolina State Bar website regarding specialization:

“The Board of Legal Specialization was created in 1983 by the North Carolina State Bar and began certifying North Carolina lawyers as legal specialists in 1987. The Board was established to create a method by which qualified North Carolina lawyers might become certified as specialists in designated areas of the law. The goals of the legal certification program are twofold.

First, the program assists in the delivery of legal services to the public by identifying to the public those lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill, and proficiency in a specific field. By identifying these lawyers, members of the public can more closely match their needs with available services.

Second, the legal specialization program seeks to improve the competency of members of the bar by establishing an additional incentive for lawyers to participate in continuing legal education and to meet other requirements of specialization.

The North Carolina State Bar Specialization Program conforms to the standards set forth by the American Bar Association. The legal certification program in North Carolina is one of only 18 state legal certification programs in the United States.”
