Southlake Lawyer Constance Mims Becomes Board Certified in Texas Family Law

Holding the Title of Senior Managing Attorney at the Beal Law Firm, Mims Is Now Recognized as a Family Law Expert; The Foundation of the New Honor Is Mims' Nine Years of Divorce and Custody Experience, Including Three as a Family Law Paralegal

FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - January 16, 2014) - The Texas Board of Legal Specialization states that in the entire State of Texas, with over 70,000 licensed lawyers, only 7,000 -- fewer than 10% -- hold the distinction of Board Certified. Texas Attorney Constance Mims received word just days ago that she is a member of that elite group -- she is now Board Certified in Family Law.

Mims is the Senior Managing Attorney of the Beal Law Firm, a firm with eight lawyers and three offices, which practices exclusively in the area of Family Law. With over six years of practice and three years of experience as a family law paralegal, Mims has dealt with child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, alimony, and divorce issues on almost a daily basis for over nine years.

As the Board's website explains, "Board Certified lawyers earn the right to publicly represent themselves as a specialist in a select area of the law. In fact, they are the only attorneys allowed by the State Bar of Texas to do so. This designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of law."

Already admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, and a longtime member of the College of the State Bar, which recognizes attorneys who pursue excellence through voluntary attendance of continuing legal education programs, Mims' other honors include back to back Client Distinction Awards from Martindale-Hubbell.

At the Beal Law Firm, Mims provides the strength that fellow Board Certified Attorney Eric Beal has relied on for years. "Constance came to work with me six years ago. She was highly recommended by one of the area's top mediators, Bobby Mann, and has been the person I have relied on 24/7 to build this practice and provide the highest quality service to all of our clients."

Beal continued, "Constance Mims is simply one of the finest attorneys I've known in almost 30 years of work and study in the law. Her Board Certification is well-deserved."

The journey to become Board Certified is described by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as "rigorous and thorough" and includes a minimum number of years of practice, a minimum number of years of substantial involvement in an area of law, the completion of a considerable number of approved Continuing Legal Education courses, at least 10 qualified, vetted references, the documentation of extensive and relevant experiences in the field, and a comprehensive, daylong, specialty area examination.

Mims is a 2002 graduate of Texas Christian University and a 2007 graduate of Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, which is now known as Texas A&M University School of Law. While at TCU, Mims majored in Political Science and was a Mary I. Gourley Scholar.

The Beal Law Firm has offices in Southlake, Fort Worth, and Dallas-Highland Park, Texas, and provides representation throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and elsewhere in the state, on all family law matters.
