On December 8, 2016, Mr. Rubin was a guest on the South Florida News and Talk IHEART radio network show “Legal News and Review”. Mr. Rubin discussed the Florida Bar’s Board Certification Program and how it is a benefit to both the public and the lawyer who becomes Board Certified. The Board Certified lawyer must meet the high certification standards approved by the Florida Supreme Court, which include the Bar’s thorough evaluation of the lawyer’s character and reputation, and the lawyer’s objective examination of subject area knowledge. The Board Certified lawyer is re-evaluated by the Bar every five (5) years to ensure that the lawyer maintains her expertise and retains a reputation for and history of excellent professionalism and ethics.
Presently, there are 27 certification areas of substantive law, and about 5,000 certified lawyers in Florida, or about 5% of Florida Bar membership. For more information about the Certification Program, and to find a Board Certified lawyer, go to the Florida Bar’s website at www.floridabar.org.
