Why Choose Board Certified?

Mark of Excellence

Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment.
Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law.

A Distinguished Few

There are more than 100,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. Only 7,400 are Board Certified.

Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest public commitment to excellence in their area of law.

The process is voluntary and can only take place after an attorney has been in practice for five years, with a minimum of three years of experience in the specialty area.

Moreover, Board Certification is not a one-time event. It requires an ongoing involvement in the specialty area which is periodically substantiated with references from peers in that field. It also requires annual professional refreshment through TBLS approved continuing legal education course work to stay abreast of current trends in law.

A Specialist in Criminal Law

Mike Trent is Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is an expert in the field of criminal law. It’s what he does. If you need to entrust your liberty and your future to an attorney, make sure they are Board Certified in Criminal Law like Mike.

Do I Need A Lawyer?

Criminal defense lawyers are accustomed to hearing this question, and unfortunately, it often comes too late. If you are wondering whether you need a lawyer, then you probably do!

If you are under investigation for a criminal offense: if someone has reported you to the police: if law enforcement or private investigator has contacted you, asking questions or requesting to meet with you, you need a lawyer. Do not talk to a police officer or detective alone! Know your rights! You have the right to remain silent. Exercise it! Be polite, but firm. If someone in law enforcement wants to speak to you, tell them you want to cooperate, but you need to speak to your lawyer first. DON’T TALK TO THE POLICE. CALL MIKE!
