The Florida Bar has offered its congratulations to Mr. Wooten and all of the other attorneys who were in the inaugural class of Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyers and who have maintained their Certification for 25 years. Mr. Wooten was among those who in 1983 became certified by The Florida Bar in one of their first two areas of certification, civil trial and tax law.
Certification is the highest level of evaluation by The Florida Bar of competency and experience of attorneys in the areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida.
According to Florida Bar President John G. “Jay” White, III,
“Florida’s board certification program is one of the leaders in the nation in maintaining the highest standards for excellence and professionalism while adding practice areas for greater public access to legal specialists. The program is predicated on experience and integrity, the foundations that are inseparable from our work as lawyers to advance the administration of justice.”
