Certified Family Law Specialist

To be certified by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California, an attorney must:

  1. Be an active member in good standing of the State Bar of California;
  2. Pass a written examination covering California Family Law;
  3. Have substantial experience in the field of Family Law;
  4. Complete specified approved legal education requirements applicable to the Family Law field; and
  5. Be favorably evaluated by judges and other attorneys concerning his or her knowledge, ability and experience in the practice of Family Law.

Certification by the Board of Legal Specialization is for a five year period. Recertification for additional five year periods does not require further examination but does require continuing compliance with other listed standards.

Certification gives lawyers the opportunity to make their experience and practice specialty known to the public and other attorney attorneys. By continued compliance with the listed requirements, a Certified Family Law Specialist maintains and improves his or her knowledge and competence in the Family Law field.

Only attorneys certified by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California may represent themselves as Family Law Specialists certified by the State Bar of California.

My experience with Shawn Bunyard of Tavis and Bunyard was completely positive. He returned my e-mails and phone calls promptly. He was professional in court, while being thoughtful and respectful of my needs. He is a man of integrity and I would recommend him to anyone.
