Becoming a Board Certified Specialist is no easy task. It literally takes years of practice, dozens of hours of family law continuing legal education (CLE) courses, peer recommendations, a lengthy application process, and finally, a comprehensive test on all areas of Family Law. To find a single Board Certified Specialist at a law firm is rare due to how much work goes into earning the certification.
Yet, M|B Law Partners Kate Bowles Miller and Nick Cushing are both Board Certified Specialists in Family Law. Their entire practice is dedicated to family law clients, and both have been recognized by numerous other awards groups and organizations for their dedication to family law.
“Being a family law practitioner is not something you should undertake unless you are committed to helping your client through one of (if not the most) difficult times in their life. You will become involved in their family life, their finances, and their life plan,” remarks Kate Miller. “I cannot imagine being a family law attorney and practicing other areas of law at the same time.”
If you are in need of a family law attorney, please read this resource provided by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization: https://www.nclawspecialists.gov/for-the-public/the-benefit-of-hiring-a-specialist/. In it, you will find an explanation from the Board itself about why it is so important to choose a Board Certified Specialist for your divorce or family law case if given the chance.
For example, a Board Certified Specialist must complete continuing education in their specialty practice of choice, not only to earn the title but also to maintain it. Every five years, the title is taken away unless the Specialist is able to keep up their continued education and prove their skill in the specialty field. This routine of constantly learning the law keeps a Specialist on the top of their abilities for their clients. On the other hand, a non-Specialist may have no idea about how family law has changed in their state since they left law school.
