What Does it Mean To Be Board Certified?

Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment.  Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law. There are more than 70,000 attorneys licensed to practice in Texas. Only 7,000 are Board Certified.  Of all the lawyers in Collin County, there are only 2 who are certified as specialists in Consumer Bankruptcy Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and only one who is certified by the American Board of Certification in Consumer Bankruptcy Law.

To Be Board Certified the Attorney Must:

  • Been licensed to practice law for at least five years;
  • Devoted a required percentage of practice to a specialty area for at least three years;
  • Handled a wide variety of matters in the area to demonstrate experience and involvement;
  • Attended continuing education seminars regularly to keep legal training up to date;
  • Been evaluated by fellow lawyers and judges;
  • Passed a 6-hour written examination.

What Advantage Comes From Working With The Standing Chapter 13 Office

The Standing Chapter 13 Trustee is appointed to represent creditors as a whole in the Chapter 13 process.  The policy objective of this office is efficiency.  It is much more efficient to have a trustee appointed to represent the interest of creditors rather than having individual creditors all involved in the nuances of the case.  One of the main jobs of the trustee is to advocate for the highest payment possible in a Chapter 13 case.  On the other hand, the Debtor(s) attorney wants to make their clients payment as low as possible.

Mr. Arnove has years of experience as the Staff Attorney for The Standing Chapter 13 Office.  This experience has given Mr. Arnove a unique expertise in recognizing factors and situations that will enable your payment to be as low as possible.  He knows how to accurately reflect this information in the schedules and required documents to the Court.  In addition, he is comfortable in adversary situations against the Standing Chapter 13 trustee when there is a disagreement.
