On June 1, 2013, Attorney Shahzad Ahmed, of NeJame Law/ NeJame, LaFay, Jancha, Ahmed, Barker, Joshi & Moreno, P.A., was awarded Board Certification in Immigration and Nationality Law. Currently, there are less than 70 lawyers board certified in Immigration and Nationality Law in Florida.
According to the Florida Bar, “Board certified lawyers are evaluated for professionalism and tested for expertise. This designation places them among the only group of Florida lawyers who may use the terms “specialist,” “expert” or “B.C.S.” for Board Certified Specialist when referring to their legal credentials.”
Further, “Board certification evaluates attorneys’ special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice. Florida offers 24 specialty areas for board certification, more than any other state. Of the lawyers eligible to practice law in Florida, 6 percent – more than 4,600 Florida lawyers – have earned board certification.”
