Not all attorneys are certified in a particular area of law, in fact, most are not. Less than 10% of the attorneys in Arizona have a certification. So, what does it mean to be certified? Arizona allows attorneys who have proven experience in a particular area of law to achieve the status of a specialist. An attorney must meet a set of standards not required by other attorneys to be called a specialist. These standards can be even higher for criminal law attorneys.

Additional Criminal Law Certification Standards Include:

  • Admission to the practice of law for 7 years.
  • Admission to the State Bar of Arizona for 2 years immediately preceding submission of the application.
  • The devotion of at least 50% of a full-time practice to the specialty area.
  • Substantial involvement in the certification area for 4 of the 6 years immediately preceding submission of the application.
  • Additionally, peer review is conducted and a written examination must be passed.
