A lawyer certified as a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer is a lawyer recognized by the Florida Bar as a practitioner, considered to have advanced knowledge and skills in that particular field of law.

Jeffrey S. Shapiro is an AV Rated® (HIGHEST POSSIBLE RATING)
. An AV® certification mark is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories - legal ability and general ethical standards. The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings help prospective clients identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for a specific task at hand. Lawyer Ratings serve as an objective indicator that a lawyer has the highest ethical standards and professional ability and are used by clients to justify their hiring decisions. A rating's third party validation of ethics and legal ability provides that extra level of confidence that the right lawyer or firm has been selected. By combining a rating with a review of other data in a lawyer's Professional Biography - such as practice areas, bar memberships, professional affiliations, education and clients - a person can be certain he or she has made the right choice for that particular legal matter.
