About The Firm

Board Certified Attorney

A Board Certified Attorney is an attorney who has demonstrated special competence in a particular field in which the Texas Board of Legal Specialization has certified their competence. It means that the State Bar Association says that “they know what they are doing!”. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization was created by the Supreme Court of Texas and the Board members are appointed by the President of the State Bar of Texas. The Board, in turn, administers the program through which an attorney may demonstrate their special competence in a particular area of law practice.

It is important to remember that in the entire state of Texas there are only approximately 145 attorneys board certified in Consumer Bankruptcy Law. A Board certified attorney will indicate their standing by including that accomplishment in their letterhead, their advertising, and by displaying their certification prominently in their office. This certification is valid for five years. After that time the attorney must be recertified. In order to become a Board Certified in Bankruptcy, an attorney must have 1) Been licensed to practice law for at least five years;2) Practiced Bankruptcy Law for at least five years;3) Devoted a minimum of 30 percent of their law practice to Bankruptcy Law;4) Handled a wide variety of bankruptcy law matters to demonstrate experience and involvement;5) Attended bankruptcy law continuing legal education seminars regularly to keep their legal training up to date;6) Have been evaluated by fellow lawyers and judges;7) They have to have passed a day long written examination.

Finally a lawyer who is Board Certified in consumer bankruptcy must have represented non-business debtors and creditors in all areas of bankruptcy including consumer debtor/creditor relations affected by bankruptcy.

Mission Statement of Davis Law Firm

We represent individuals and small businesses in Dallas and Ft Worth Chapter7, Chapter 13 and 11 Bankruptcy Cases.

In our office each person who answers any call for information on bankruptcy is not only familiar with process, price, and procedure, but is acutely aware of the emotional impact and enormity of the decision each potential client is facing. Seldom does anyone make the decision to file personal bankruptcy without incurring sleepless nights, depression, and feelings of inadequacy.

One of the factors we stress is that we know the decision to consider filing bankruptcy did not come easily. We also understand how the dread of answering the phone or opening the mail can be when facing such an ordeal. Illness, loss of employment or divorce will often be the cause of financial instability.

With this attitude, we take care in explaining the bankruptcy process from decision to discharge. By focusing on a particular area of law, we can better represent our clients and provide them the peace of mind and resolution for which they desire.
