Tharrington Smith's Family Law Team

Jill Jackson and Alice Stubbs Newly Certified Family Law Specialists

Alice Stubbs and Jill Jackson were certified as specialists by the Board of Legal Specialization of the North Carolina State Bar on November 9, 2006.

The Board of Legal Specialization was established by the North Carolina State Bar to create a method by which qualified North Carolina lawyers might become certified as specialists in designated areas of the law. The legal certification program in North Carolina is one of only 18 state legal certification programs in the United States.

The legal specialization program identifies to the public those lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill, and proficiency in a specific field. To be certified as a specialist, a lawyer must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be an active member in good standing with the North Carolina State Bar for at least five years.
  2. Devote at least 25% of his or her practice to the specialty during the past five years (substantial involvement).
  3. Attend continuing legal education (CLE) seminars in the specialty.
  4. Be favorably evaluated by other lawyers and judges (peer review).
  5. Pass a written examination in the specialty practice area.

Ms. Stubbs and Ms. Jackson join the ranks of three other family lawyers at Tharrington Smith who are Board-certified family law specialists: Carlyn G. Poole, Jaye Meyer, and Lynn P. Burleson.
