It requires one to reach certain performance requirements and obtain peer references attesting to your ability and character as an attorney and as a person. Then, on top of that, there is a grueling exam. Nowadays, some lawyers can simply purchase awards – not this one. You earn it. I feel very satisfied.”
The Texas Board of Legal Specialization provides these requirements and credentials: (1) Practice law fulltime for at least 5 years as an active member of the State Bar of Texas; (2) At least 3 years of Personal Injury Trial Law experience with a yearly minimum 25% substantial involvement with Personal Injury Trial Law matters; (3) Tried at least 10 Personal Injury Trial Law cases that met substantive requirements; (4) Qualified vetted references from judges and lawyers in the area; (5) Complete 60 hours of TBLS approved continuing legal education in Personal Injury Trial Law; (6) Meet all of the TBLS Standards for Attorney Certification; and (7) Pass a comprehensive 6-hour examination Personal Injury Trial Law.

Ferguson added, “While this is an individual accomplishment, it would not have happened without our law firm. Honestly, this is a testament to our firm, not me. They nurtured me, they mentored me, and gave me the opportunity to succeed.” For The Ferguson Law Firm, Tim Ferguson is the fifth lawyer to attain board certification.
