It means an attorney has had extra in-depth training to understand the complexities of the adoption statute. An attorney who isn’t board certified in adoption law may lack the unique skills and experience that come from this added level of training. For this reason, board certification provides an extra measure of protection for birth mothers and adoptive parents. It’s your assurance that the attorney is an expert, not just a general lawyer. Board certified attorneys are the only Florida lawyers allowed to identify or advertise themselves as specialists or experts in the field of adoption law.
