Many legal problems.  We have the right solution for you!

Some states have recognized the need for select attorneys with a high degree of knowledge and experience in a particular area of law to apply to the State Bar to be recognized as an Expert or Specialist.

To help you in your selection of an attorney, we have gathered a select number of these attorneys who are certified experts or specialists to help you with your legal issue.

Anchor 1

Experts/Specialists Have:


  • High degree of knowledge.

  • High degree of skill.

  • Complete knowledge of the law.

  • Successfully passed a written and/or oral test overseen by the State Bar.


You need to have surgery. Would you have a general practice family doctor perform the delicate surgery, or would you want it done right and seek out a spine surgeon who is a specialist to perform the surgery? 

You get the point! 

You can hire any attorney, but you should consider hiring a certified expert/specialist. These attorneys are dedicated and have demonstrated a high degree of knowledge and competence in the area of law that they are certified under. 

Are All Attorneys Experts?

Only a small percentage of all attorneys are certified experts. Some attorneys falsely advertise that they are experts or specialize in a certain areas of law. This is unfortunate, because the client thinks that they are hiring a real expert with superior knowledge of the law, but they are not. In these cases, the very foundation of the attorney/client relationship is built on a lie. Don’t be a victim of their false claims.


In states that actually allow attorneys to advertise that they are experts or specialists, the attorney must apply to the State Bar and meet all of the strict requirements and take a test(s) in order to even be considered an expert/specialist. For example, in Nevada, only around 1% of all licensed attorneys have successfully been designated as experts/specialists.


In order for an attorney to be listed on this website, the attorney MUST be certified by the State Bar as an expert/specialist. This means that each attorney on this website has successfully passed all requirements of the State Bar to become one of the select few to be named as an expert/specialist.

A True Story

Ray F. was told by his former worker's compensation lawyer that he did not have a case and Ray was told to leave his office.  Determined to find out if he had a case or not, Ray contacted Attorney Joel Santos, a certified worker's compensation expert in Reno, Nevada.  Attorney Santos accepted Ray as a client because he did, in fact, have a case under Nevada law.  All that was needed was lots of hard work, correct knowledge of the law, and gathering enough evidence to make the insurance company concerned to go to hearing.  The case was settled for a considerable sum of money.  Here is what Ray had to say:

"I came to Attorney Joel Santos because I did not think I had a case.  We worked together for quite a while and there were a lot of issues involved.  We came to a great ending and resolved my issue with worker's comp.  Joel's persistence and expertise finally brought the case to a conclusion.  We came to a very equitable and happy conclusion.   I am very happy the way it turned out."  Ray F. - client.
