AUSTIN (February 17, 2016) − Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) announced Chris Harris, J.D., received Board Certification in Family Law. Harris currently practices in Williamson and Travis Counties as Co-Founding Partner of Harris & Schroeder, PLLC in Leander, Texas.
The legal specialization program certifies qualified Texas attorneys in 22 specific areas of law. Attorneys who are Board Certified must:
- Be licensed for at least five years;
- Devote a required percentage of practice to a specialty area for at least three years;
- Attend continuing education seminars;
- Pass an evaluation by fellow lawyers and judges; and
- Pass a six-hour written examination.
“An attorney has to do something extra to get certified and then they have to continue to work and acquire knowledge in their specialty area to remain certified. You could say it is a life-long commitment,” said Hal Moorman, Chairman of the TBLS Board of Directors.
In addition to his TBLS Family Law Certification, Harris is a member of the Texas Bar College. The Texas Bar College is an honorary society for attorneys who have gone above and beyond in their Continuing Legal Education (CLE).
Chris Harris, J.D., represents clients in complex property division and high-conflict Family Law matters, including divorce, child custody & support, adoption, and pre- and postnuptial agreements.
