Board Certified Specialist Attorney in Idaho
Before an attorney in Idaho can advertise that he or she is a "certified specialist" in any area of the law, the attorney must first earn certification as a specialist under Section X of the Idaho Bar Commission Rules. The Idaho State Bar does not certify attorneys as a specialist. Instead, it approves other organizations to certify attorneys as a specialist in specific areas of the law.
Organizations that want to become approved for specialty certification must file an Application for Accreditation with the Idaho State Bar. The organization must also pay a $200 application fee for each specialty area.
