Louis Bratton is a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer and has been so since 1989. Additionally, he writes and grades a portion of the state wide Board Certification Examination. It is his strong belief that Plaintiffs should look for and hire a Board Certified attorney. Achieving Board Certification means an attorney has achieved special recognition by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for substantial experience and specialized training in his chosen field. A Board Certified Attorney goes through a rigorous investigation by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization wherein the Texas Board contacts Judges before whom the attorney has practiced, as well as fellow lawyers who have been on the opposite side of cases, to check the character and skill of the attorney seeking certification. Once the background investigation is completed and the State Board of Legal Specialization is satisfied with the experience, reputation, and ethical behavior of the attorney, he must take a lengthy and difficult examination. Upon the successful completion of the examination, the attorney becomes Board Certified. A Board Certified Attorney has to maintain this level of excellence by attending additional continued legal education courses each year far exceeding the requirement of the average licensed attorney. Further, a Board Certified Attorney has to be re certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Louis Bratton, along with his partner Barham Bratton, bring experience, dedication and Board Certification to the investigation and prosecution of your case.
