Why Choose Calloway Norris Burdette Weber & Baxter-Thompson, PLLC?
Board Certified Probate Attorney in Dallas
Four of our lawyers, Mr. Calloway, Mr. Norris, Ms. Burdette, and Ms. Baxter-Thompson
are Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate Law by the Texas Board
of Legal Specialization. Mr. Weber is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law.
As explained by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization on its website:
Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment.
Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney
has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well
as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law.
There are more than 70,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. Only
7,000 are Board Certified.
Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves
as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only
attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation
sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment
to excellence in their area of law.
The process is voluntary and can only take place after an attorney has
been in practice for five years, with a minimum of three years' experience
in the specialty area.
Moreover, Board Certification is not a one-time event. It requires an ongoing
involvement in the specialty area which is periodically substantiated
with references from peers in that field. It also requires annual professional
refreshment through TBLS approved, continuing legal education course work
to stay abreast of current trends in law.
