Houston Criminal Defense Attorney John Floyd Announces Board Certification in Criminal Law

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - In an effort to better serve clients of the John T. Floyd Law Firm, Houston Criminal Lawyer John Floyd has become Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Board Certification in criminal law means a lawyer has substantial relevant experience, demonstrated special competence and passed vigorous testing in this difficult area of law. As a member of this very special group, Mr. Floyd is among the rarified ranks of some 858 Texas attorneys who are Board Certified as Criminal Law experts. Considering that there are more than 70,000 licensed attorneys who practice in Texas, this is an exceptional achievement and much earned mark of excellence.

With Board Certification John Floyd can expressly hold himself out as a "specialist" in the field of criminal defense work. In fact, board certified lawyers are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to publicly assert that they are specialists in any given area of law.

"Given the bad reputation some attorneys have garnered in recent years, it is a distinguished honor that I can join the other board certified lawyers in promoting a high level of professionalism and expertise within the criminal bar. It took years of criminal defense work in the trenches of both state and federal courts to achieve this Board Certification," says Mr. Floyd.
