What It Means to Have a Certified Family Law Specialist Represent You

When it comes to choosing a family law attorney, you will find there are many that claim to have experience in the field. While this may be true, unless they specialize in the practice, they may not be as qualified to represent your case as much as they say. As a certified family law specialist, Matthew Sheasby is recognized by the state of California as an expert in matters of family law and divorce.

How Does One Become a Certified Specialist in Family Law?

In order to become a specialist in any field of law, one must go through rigorous training and show exemplary knowledge and skill. The state awards specializations to specific attorneys who have gone beyond the norm to better learn their craft and area of practice. Certified specialists also continue to improve their skills and knowledge in the field of family law.

In order to become a Certified Specialist, one must do the following:

  • Continue education in family law and fulfill requirements
  • Pass an exam on the subject
  • Exhibit knowledge, skill, and expertise in family law
  • Have positive references from peers familiar with the attorney’s work

Why You Need a Certified Specialist On Your Side

While other attorneys may claim to be experts in family law, only individuals who are certified specialists can say that. When looking for a family law lawyer, you want to make sure you have the best representation out there.

A certified specialist in family law can:

  • Protect clients from legal traps
  • Help navigate the complicated waters of divorce
  • Negotiate and mediate divorce and custody plans
  • Offer advice and knowledge that is current
  • Be the legal support you need to get through a divorce
