  7. Why Seek Certification? Joni Armstrong Coffey Board Certified City, County & Local Government Attorney • Certification serves both prospective clients and counsel seeking to refer legal matters to an expert. • Certification provides an objective measure that a corporate executive, hiring partner, government official or other leader may justifiably rely upon when selecting a lawyer and explaining the choice to stockholders, clients, citizens or others to whom the leader is accountable. • Certification enhances the stature of a law firm or office, as tangibly demonstrated by lower malpractice insurance rates for certified lawyers. • Certification demonstrates commitment for practitioners who vary their practice styles from the traditional mode, and helps validate the commitment of a lawyer who chooses to work alternative hours, or from home, to accommodate health, family or other personal demands.
