About Me

Forrest Welmaker is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Saying one is specialized in personal injury law is one thing--being Board Certified is entirely different.  Achieving Board Certification means an attorney has achieved special recognition by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for substantial experience and specialized training in his or her chosen field--just as Forrest Welmaker has.  To you, it means your case will receive expert attention.  If you are considering hiring an attorney that is not board certified, ask him or her why they are not board certified.  Keep in mind one important thing.  It does not cost you any more to have the best qualified lawyer working on your case.
