Board Certified Criminal Trial Specialist Richard Eisenberg Serving Sarasota and Manatee Counties

Mr. Eisenberg is one of only a handful of criminal defense attorneys in all of Sarasota County who has been recognized by the Florida Bar as a Board Certified Criminal Trial Specialist. There’s a reason why there are so few board certified criminal defense attorneys. That’s because the Florida Bar’s requirements for board certification are so difficult to achieve! Only lawyers who have been recognized by the Florida Bar as “Board Certified” are ethically entitled to call themselves an “Expert” or “Specialist” in their area of the law. Board certified lawyers have met The Florida Bar’s highest standards for special knowledge, skills, and proficiency. It is the highest pinnacle an attorney can reach in recognition for legal expertise and gives the public objective standards by which to evaluate attorneys.
