Board Certification

What is Board Certification?


Board certification in Texas is a program by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization recognizing  attorneys who demonstrate expertise in a specific area of practice.  Achieving and maintaining Texas Board Certification is an ardous task and a true achievement.  Less than 10% of all Texas Attorneys are board certified in any area of specialization; and only 2% of all Texas Attorneys are board certified in personal injury trial law.   Paul B. Rosen is Board Certified in personal injury trial law.
