Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

D. Todd Smith Talks Social Media in TBLS Interview

In the July 2014 issue of Certification Matters, the Texas Board of Legal Specialization featured an interview with D. Todd Smith, an attorney Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law. Smith discussed the professional benefits to connecting via social media, the social media tools he finds most useful, and the one takeaway he would pass along to legal professionals using these communications platforms.

According to the TBLS website, Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment achieved by only 10 percent of all Texas lawyers. Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law and special competence in that area.
