Board Certification. What You Need to Think About

Posted on May 18, 2019 in Board Certification


Steve Oberman was one of the forefathers of our NCDD Board Certification Process and remains integral to its yearly success. Never shy to comment, here's what Steve Oberman wants YOU to think about:

"You Should NOT Become Board Certified as a DUI Defense Specialist if you don't want to:

Receive additional respect from judges and your peers;

Become a better lawyer;

Be recognized for your accomplishments by the NCDD, the media and others;

Want more clients to retain you;

Charge the fees Board Certified lawyers can demand.

Board certification is far from an easy process, but it is attainable and the Board Certification Committee of the NCDD is here to assist you—whether you are a member of the NCDD or not. You may become the first or join other lawyers in your state to become Board Certified, but why not make this a priority in your professional life?

At the very least, take 10 minutes to contact someone who is Board Certified. Ask about the qualifications. Ask whether they have regretted preparing for the exam or working to achieve this designation. Check out our rules right here.

I assure you that you will not regret it."

Steve Oberman is Board Certified by NCDD, Past Dean of NCDD and Past Chair of the Board Certification Committee. Learn more about Steve right here. To learn more about the only ABA approved Board Certification Exam in the area of DUI defense, click here.

The NCDD Blog is for our members to comment on matters of general interest in the field of DUI Defense and to ask general questions concerning the topics posted. NCDD does not monitor or control answers from the various lawyers (many of whom are regarded as among the best in the country) who may respond and the answers or comments they provide are solely their own. Responses to questions and comments are not legal advice: they are only the opinions of the lawyer providing the answer or making the comment. No attorney client relationship is formed between the person who posts a question or comment and any attorney who posts an answer or comment. The NCDD Blog is not for the purpose of soliciting legal advice for any specific case and should not be relied upon for that purpose. No lawyer can provide advice for a specific case without far more information than can be included in a blog post. Furthermore, the NCDD Blog is not to be used in any form, for any marketing, advertising or solicitation by any author. If you need legal assistance or advice, consult a lawyer in your state. You can find NCDD member lawyers in your State listed under "Find an Attorney" in the menu to the left or at the top of the page. No opinion expressed by an attorney or other person on the NCDD Blog represents the opinion or views of the NCDD.
