Why Hire A Board-Certified Attorney?

W. Tyler Moore is a sixth-generation Texan with more than 40 years experience practicing law in the Lone Star State. Following 27 years in a successful, Brazos Valley-based practice, he relocated W. Tyler Moore, PC, to Houston.

With certification as a specialist in both civil trial law and family law from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, our founding attorney has credentials that few other attorneys can match. Our firm's practice includes assisting business clients to resolve complex disputes — our extensive trial experience is often the difference in a case outcome. We also help families in the Houston metro navigate tough family-related legal problems such as divorce, child custody and property division.

Who Can Use The Term Specialist?

Only board-certified attorneys earn the right to be called specialists in a certain practice area. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) has granted this right to less than 10 percent of the almost 100,000 lawyers licensed to practice in the state of Texas. Even fewer hold dual certification.

What Are The Requirements Of Board Certification?

Board certification is voluntary and shows that a Texas lawyer "has substantial relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law." The TBLS generally requires the following:

  • An attorney has been in practice for a minimum of three years in the specialty area.
  • Verification of this experience and peer recommendations
  • A difficult written examination

To continue to hold a certification, an attorney periodically needs to demonstrate ongoing involvement in the specialty and offer peer references.
