what is board certification?

Looking for an attorney to create your will or help administer an estate after your loved one has passed is not an easy process. With countless lawyers to select from, why not choose one deemed an expert?

Attorney Carl Goode is board-certified as an estate planning and estate administration specialist – an accomplishment difficult to obtain.

In order to be awarded board certification, an attorney must have practiced in a certain area of law for a number of years and must possess advanced, intricate knowledge in that area. The attorney must have positive reviews from peers and also pass a rigorous exam.
