Three Assistant District attorneys received notification this past weekend that they passed the board certification exam. Applicants who wish to be recognized as criminal law specialists by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization are required to submit a lengthy application detailing their trial, plea and other relevant experience. They also must submit numerous references from defense attorneys, judges and other colleagues affirming that they should receive this recognition.
Nancy Hebert, Kelly Blackburn and Cindy Pulcher sat for the exam in October, and were notified that they had passed the exam on Sunday. There are sixteen attorneys in the Conroe area that have obtained Board Certification in criminal law; seven of those sixteen are Assistant District Attorneys.
“I continue to push our prosecutors to obtain board certification,” stated District Attorney Brett Ligon. “We believe that the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office is the best in the state. Having so many Board Certified attorneys shows our commitment to hiring and retaining some of the best legal minds in the field.”
