Attorney Brett A. Duker Achieves Board Certification

   July 29, 2021 - Principal Attorney Brett A. Duker has been conferred the status of Board Certified in Construction Law by the Florida Bar. Duker is one of seventy six attorneys in the state to earn Florida Bar board certification, which recognizes attorneys’ special knowledge, skills, and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice. Board certified lawyers are “Evaluated for Professionalism and Tested for Expertise.” 

   Florida’s legal ranks currently feature over 5,000 board-certified attorneys, offering expertise in 27 areas of law. With just one in 20 Florida Bar members able to call themselves “board certified,” it clearly is a crucial component in the career of any attorney looking to emerge from the crowd.

   As the legal landscape grows increasingly competitive, board certified lawyers are able to use their status to set themselves apart from peers. And a growing number of Bar members are exploring board certification to help stand out in what they see as a crowded landscape.

Minimum standards for construction law certification, provided in Rule 6-24.3, include:

  • Practice of law for at least five years;
  • Substantial involvement in the specialty of construction law – 40% or more – during the three years immediately preceding application;
  • 45 hours of approved construction law certification continuing legal education in the three years immediately preceding application;
  • Peer review; and,
  • A written examination.

Congratulations Brett!
