What Is Board Certification?
The State Bar of Texas recognizes attorneys who have a “special competence” through the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. There are strict requirements for receiving recognition. Board-certified attorneys work across a variety of case types in their practice area, maintain ongoing education standards, pass examinations and have at least five years of practice in their specialty area.
Brian Jensen has been board-certified since 1982. Specialists have participated in the preparation and trial of significant civil cases. They are familiar with the negotiation and pretrial process, as well as with rules of evidence, procedure and other substantial law involved in those civil cases.
Board certification is for a period of five years, after which time an attorney may apply for re-certification. A board-certified attorney will be re-certified as long as the attorney continues to remain in good standing, meets the requirements of continuing legal education and continues to demonstrate substantial involvement in his or her field of specialty.
