What Does It Mean to Be Board Certified?
Attorney Scott Richardson has been certified by the Florida Bar in criminal law since 1996. Board certification is a process that recognizes an attorney’s specialized knowledge, skills, and proficiency in a given area of law, as well as that attorney’s stellar professionalism and professional ethics in their practice.
Board certification is not available to just any attorney who passes the Florida bar exam; it’s an honor awarded by the highest legal authority in Florida, The Florida Bar. In order to obtain certification, the attorney must pass a comprehensive exam that tests their knowledge, skills, and expertise in a given specialty. Even after establishing a high watermark in those areas, the certification is only awarded to lawyers who pass a rigorous peer-reviewed process evaluating their character, professionalism, and ethics.
Board certification is limited to elite practitioners in a given field of law, worthy of the privilege of calling themselves an “expert.”
What Does It Mean to Be a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers?

In order to be granted fellowship in the organization, criminal defense lawyer Scott Richardson had to be deemed among the top one percent of all lawyers in the State of Florida.
