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.

A True Story
"I was contacted by a gentleman on a Nevada worker's compensation case. He said that an attorney (who is not an expert) told him that he did not have a case. He asked me to review his case. After my review, I told the gentleman that he actually did have a case and I showed him where there was a Nevada Supreme Court case that supported his issue. With a lot of hard work, I was able to obtain a settlement for the gentleman for over $700,000.00."
