There are lawyers. There are family law attorneys. And then there are attorneys certified in family law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.
Attorney Dorie A. Rogers has 30 years of experience in family law. This is a testament to her dedication to the needs of these clients. But the requirements for certification go far beyond just practicing law. Aside from taking and passing the regular bar exams and other requirements for a license to practice law in California, attorney Rogers has:
- Passed the Family Law Specialist Bar Exam
- Experience and rigorous training in all areas of family law
- Participated as lead counsel in all facets of family law trials
- Been recommended by judges and other attorneys
She serves as minor's counsel by Court appointment and is actively involved in all areas of family law, including serving in organizations dedicated to family and children's well-being. Only a small percentage of lawyers are certified.
More than most areas of law, family law has evolved in recent decades, and continues to evolve. It is, more and more, a highly technical field. Make no mistake, retaining a certified family law attorney is money well-spent, and will save you trouble and expense in the long run.
"In terms of the potential breadth and complexity of issues which they face, family practitioners work in one of the most, and perhaps the most, exacting and demanding areas of concentration in the law. Under California's community property laws, every item of marital property presents a host of challenging issues. Not only must the family practitioner worry about the characterization and valuation of each asset, he or she often must consider future tax consequences involved in various items of community property. On top of that, support and customer issues involve different considerations, in which a human relationship- as distinct from a discrete event-is the subject of the litigation."
