Pleasant Hill, California (EastBayDaily) — California attorney Carl R. Gustafson has been certified as a bankruptcy specialist by the State Bar of California. Currently, fewer than one half of 1% of the state’s attorneys are certified specialists in the area of bankruptcy.
The certification process is rigorous and requires bankruptcy attorneys to meet a multi-phase criteria. Specifically, attorneys who are certified as bankruptcy specialists have passed a written examination, demonstrated a high level of experience in the field, completed over 45 hours of continuing legal education during the past 3 years, and been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.
Gustafson, who works primarily out of Lincoln Law’s Pleasant Hill office, believes the certification illustrates the firm’s larger commitment to obtaining great results for clients. “Each person at our law firm is committed to doing everything we can to help clients who are facing difficult financial times,” said Gustafson. “The specialist certification illustrates one more way we are dedicated to being the best bankruptcy attorneys and achieving positive results for our clients.”
