Please join us in congratulating Douglas Dykes for attaining his civil trial board certification with the Florida Bar. Board certification is The Florida Bar’s highest level of evaluation of expertise, competency, professionalism, and ethics. Board certification recognizes an attorney’s special knowledge, skills and proficiency, which enables consumers to identify highly qualified specialists in 24 areas of law. And since all personal injury cases are civil cases, this accomplishment is particularly impressive as Doug joins just four other board certified civil trial attorneys in the Panama City, Florida area.
In the words of Florida Bar President Gregory Coleman, “Board certification is one of the highest recognitions a lawyer in Florida can receive. The very difficult testing and extensive background peer review to confirm professional conduct is such a high standard that just seven percent of our eligible membership has achieved this level of recognition. All board certified attorneys should be extremely proud of their accomplishment.”
