William Frank Carroll Appointed to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization

July 25, 2016

William Frank Carroll, Dallas-based senior counsel in Dykema’s Financial Services Litigation group, was appointed by the President of the State Bar of Texas for a three-year term as one of the 12 members of the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

The Texas Board of Legal Specialization certifies attorneys as specialists in 22 categories and is the only certification authority in Texas. Of the 90,000 lawyers licensed in Texas, only 7,200 are Board Certified. 

Prior to his most recent appointment, Carroll had served the Board of Legal Specialization for eight years as Chair of the Civil Trial Exam Commission, which writes, administers and grades the Civil Trial Exam for those seeking certification in that area.

Carroll himself is Board Certified in both Civil Trial Law and in Civil Appellate Law. Less than 100 attorneys in Texas have both certifications.
