That’s a good question. To become a certified specialist in any area, including probate, you have to do three things: You have to get letters of reference from experienced attorneys and judges attesting to your ability. You have to fulfill certain practice requirements about how many cases of each type you’ve handled and attest to that. You have to also pass an exam. Then after you become a certified legal specialist, you have to participate in continuing education and stay up-to-date and stay fresh on current law and get recertified every five years.
