Hanszen Laporte announced that Jeffrey L. Dorrell has received Board Certification in Civil Trial Law. Mr. Dorrell currently practices in Houston, TX where he is a Partner at Hanszen Laporte, LLP.

Board Certification is a voluntary designation program certifying Texas attorneys in 21 specific areas of law. Board Certified attorneys must be licensed for at least five years, devote a required percentage of practice to a specialty area for at least three years, attend continuing education seminars, pass an evaluation by fellow lawyers and judges and pass a 6-hour written examination.

“An attorney has to do something extra to get certified and then they have to continue to work and acquire knowledge in their specialty area to remain certified. You could say it is a life-long commitment,” said Judy Lenox, Chairman of the TBLS Board of Directors.
