Yesterday the North Carolina State Bar announced 2015 Board Certified Legal Specialists, and Steve Black has received his specialization in Real Property Law – Residential Transactions. It’s really a big deal. The NC State Bar began certifying lawyers as legal specialists in 1987. The requirements for legal specialization include being substantially involved in the practice area for at least 5 years; a required number of continuing legal education credits in the specialty area; satisfactory peer review; and a successful score on a written 6-hour examination. There are only 7 Board Certified Residential Real Property Specialists in Charlotte and 4 in Greensboro! Our firm has a total of 5 Board Certified Legal Specialists, which we are told by the State Bar is one of the highest numbers in the state.
