What Is Board Certification?
An attorney who is board certified in a specific area has met the experience requirements set forth by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for taking the written examination in that practice area. Further, they have obtained a sufficient score on the written examination. The examination consists of three hours for essay questions and three hours for multiple-choice questions. Less than half of all first-time applicants pass the board certification examination.
William B. Doonan was allowed to sit for the board certification examination in October 2014 after being licensed in November of 2009. His past experience in many contested cases and jury trials helped him meet the eligibility criteria for the examination.
