2015 marks the 40th year of the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, which certifies attorneys in 21 areas of law and paralegals in six areas.
On June 19, in conjunction with its anniversary, the State Bar’s Annual Meeting, and the Rusty Duncan Advanced Criminal Law Course in San Antonio, TBLS held a reception to recognize attorneys who have been board certified since its 1974 inception, including 35 lawyers certified in criminal law.
Gary McNeil, executive director of TBLS, and Stanley G. Schneider, attorney with Schneider & McKinney in San Antonio, commended the lawyers and presented plaques to each of the 13 criminal law attorneys who attended the event.
