Shutts & Bowen LLP is pleased to announce that Daniel Nordby, a partner in the firm’s Tallahassee office, has earned Board Certification from The Florida Bar as an expert in the area of Appellate Practice, making him the only attorney in Florida to hold concurrent board certifications in both Appellate Practice and State & Federal Government & Administrative Practice.
“As the only attorney double board certified in both Appellate Practice and State & Federal Government & Administrative Practice, I look forward to applying my unique expertise to benefit my clients,” said Daniel.
Daniel is one of only 215 attorneys to be Board Certified in Appellate Practice. Board certification is the highest level of recognition by The Florida Bar for the competency and experience of an attorney in a specific practice area. Through board certification, The Florida Bar recognizes an attorney’s special knowledge, skill, proficiency, professionalism, and ethics. Becoming board certified is an extensive process, with certification in appellate practice requiring the attorney to handle at least 25 appellate actions and 5 appellate oral arguments in the five years preceding application and to maintain a substantial involvement in the specialty of appellate practice.
“Dan’s board certification in Appellate Practice is a tremendous professional achievement and distinguishes him as an expert in not just one, but two specialties,” said Benjamin Gibson, Vice Chair of the Appellate Practice Group.
Daniel is a member of the Appellate Practice Group and focuses his practice on high profile, high stakes matters of law and public policy, particularly in the areas of constitutional, appellate, and administrative law. Daniel draws on his prior service in the public sector when representing businesses, individuals and governmental clients on their most challenging legal issues.
