What does it mean to be a Board Certified* Criminal Law Specialist?
Rule 7.4. of the Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct provides direction for any lawyer who wants to become a “specialist” in an area of law:
- A lawyer shall not state or imply that the lawyer is a specialist in a particular field of law, unless:
- The lawyer has been certified as a specialist by an Independent Certifying Organization accredited by the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 30; and,
- The certifying organization is identified in the communication.
