Two Members Celebrate 25 Years as Board Certified Specialists

Mike Godwin and Paul Livingston

Schell Bray PLLC is proud to announce that Mike Godwin and Paul Livingston were recently recognized by the North Carolina State Bar for 25 years of being Board Certified Specialists in Estate and Probate Law.

Board certification is a notable accomplishment.  Within the North Carolina legal community, board certification means that a lawyer has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated and tested proficiency in that practice area.  There are more than 25,000 active lawyers licensed to practice in North Carolina and only 826 are board certified specialists.  There were 92 lawyers in the initial class who passed the exam and became board certified specialists when the program began in 1987.  Of that number, 59 have maintained their certification for the last 25 years.

We congratulate Mike Godwin and Paul Livingston on their achievement of this honor.
