Established in 1984, The Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists is a professional organization of Board Certified family law attorneys and Board Certified family law paralegals.

For those seeking highly qualified representation in a family law matter, TAFLS provides a convenient source for information about Board Certified family law attorneys.

As stated by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, “Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment. Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law.

Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of law.”
