What Does It Mean to Be Board Certified by the Florida Bar?
How Our Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Help You
Attorney Mark Horwitz is board-certified as a criminal trial specialist by the Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). Fewer than 1 percent of all Florida attorneys are board-certified in criminal law, and even fewer are certified by the NBTA.
How Is Board Certification a Reflection of an Attorney’s Skill?
In order to obtain the initial certification by the Florida Bar and the NBTA as a Specialist, the attorney must pass a written examination, show that she/he devotes a substantial portion of her/his practice to criminal defense and has a substantial number of trials. In addition, the attorney must be considered ethical, professional and competent by his peers.
- The attorney must continue to meet ongoing requirements because certification is reviewed every 5 years. Click on the links below if you would like to review the specific requirements that a certified specialist must accomplish.

In other words, an attorney can be board-certified only if he or she is knowledgeable in an area of law, has significant experience and is respected by other lawyers and judges. When you hire a board-certified attorney, you can expect to be represented well.
Mark Horwitz is a board-certified criminal defense lawyer who specializes in criminal trials. He is also a former federal prosecutor with more than 30 years of criminal law experience under his belt.
