Why I Became Board Certified

Posted on April 24, 2019 in Board Certification


I became board certified to prove to myself, to the profession, and to the public that I was an elite lawyer. In an era of hype and phony pay-for-play credentials, the NCDD board certification program stands alone as test as test of DUI defense knowledge, and courtroom skill. There's are two reasons why fewer than 60 lawyers in America have achieved board certification: the requirements for eligibility to take the exam are stringent, and the exam itself is very difficult. Accredited by the American Bar Association, it is the only credential that is officially recognized in my home State of Wisconsin, allowing me to lawfully say that I am a Specialist. The recognition that I received for becoming board certified has dramatically enhanced my career, reputation, and my practice.

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.
