Board Certification Is a Sign of Professional Excellence

Berks County Attorney Scott C. Painter strongly believes in certification and can be relied upon to help clients solve their issues and achieve their goals. Attorney Painter has taken the steps to earn board certification in elder law, his specialty area of law. Legal specialization increases an attorney’s ability to best serve the public. All lawyers must be licensed to practice. Board certification, however, is voluntary, and is an indication of the attorney’s diligence and pursuit of excellence. Lawyers who pursue board certification strive to meet the highest standards of practice in their field. An attorney who has attained board certification from an accredited group has demonstrated that he or she meets or exceeds levels of professional excellence in a specialty area of law.
