The Florida Bar announced it is adding standardized Board Certification in Condominium and Planned Development Law to its current roster of 26 defined areas of law. This is positive news for Eisinger, Brown, Lewis, Frankel & Chaiet, P.A.
which has focused its practice in these well-defined areas of law for more than 20 years.
The Florida Bar’s application filing period begins this summer and since Eisinger Law has a demonstrated history of proficiency in these specialized areas of law, several of the firm’s attorneys are already in the process of applying.
Conditions of Board Certification necessitate that each practice area has set standards that have been approved by the Supreme Court of Florida and incorprated into the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. The standards include specific practice or experience criteria, passing an examination, advanced continuing education, and supportive peer review which sufficiently assesses qualifications such as competence, skill experience, professionalism and ethics.
The application process is extremely comprehensive but Eisinger, Brown, Lewis, Frankel & Chaiet’s attorneys are exceedingly experienced and qualified. In addtion to representing the interests of condominium and homeowners’ associations
and co-ops in South Florida and statewide for the past three decades, managing partner Dennis J. Eisinger is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida’s School of Law, teaching a class on condominium and community development law. Partner, Jed L. Frankel has represented numerous clients, including community associations
, before administrative, trial court and appellate panels across the State. Frankel is “AV” rated by his peers and is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Florida Bar.
“Board Certification is a strong indicator of our firm’s expertise and principal way we can best serve our clients and ensure our attorneys remain at the forefront of this specialized and continuously evolving area of law,” said partner Jed. L. Frankel.
Accordingly to The Florida Bar, a lawyer who is board certified is recognized as “having special knowledge, skills and proficiency in the practice area and good character, ethics and a reputation for professionalism in the practice of law.” Board certification establishes an independent measure of competence, professionalism and peer acknowledgment and we anticipate it will also become a valuable referral resource within the legal community. Once a lawyer achieves Board Certification they may use the initials B.C.S. after their name to indicate they are a Board Certified Specialist.
