It’s Official: Enoch Kever Attorneys Melissa Lorber and Shelby O’Brien Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization
After meeting stringent standards,
Melissa Lorber and Shelby O’Brien
were inducted by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law on February 10, 2017.
There are over 100,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas, but only 7,400 have earned the right to be publicly recognized as Board Certified specialists in one of twenty-two select areas of law.
The Board Certification process is rigorous and thorough with ongoing requirements after initial certification. An applicant must, among other requirements, provide extensive, relevant experience documentation and pass a comprehensive, daylong, specialty area examination.
The Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) was established in 1974 by the State Bar of Texas to “promote the availability, accessibility and quality of the services of attorneys to the public in particular areas of the law… and advance the standards of the legal profession.”
