TAMPA, FL – Tampa-based labor and employment law firm Johnson Jackson PLLC announced one of its Partners, Christopher Bentley, has earned the recognition of being Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by The Florida Bar. This certification signifies Bentley is among a small percentage of attorneys in the state of Florida who practice labor and employment law and have demonstrated excellence in the field with special knowledge, skills, and proficiency to be properly identified to the public as being board certified.

Bentley says about the recognition, “At Johnson Jackson, we pride ourselves on being experts in labor and employment law. One way to demonstrate this is by becoming board certified – something that is achieved by only a small percentage of attorneys. It was important for me to achieve this status and show our clients that I’ve exceeded the levels of professional excellence
in our field.”

To become board certified, Bentley passed a written examination, underwent peer review, and met the minimum educational standards of 60 hours as required by The Florida Bar. Currently, there are 177 total attorneys in the state of Florida who have achieved the status of being Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law, or approximately .23-percent of all licensed attorneys
in the entire state.

“Obtaining Board Certification in Labor and Employment is an incredible achievement,” says Johnson Jackson Shareholder, Erin Jackson. “As The Florida Bar explains, Board certified lawyers are ‘Evaluated for Professionalism and Tested for Expertise.’ Chris has consistently demonstrated specialized knowledge and proficiency in the practice of labor and employment law. He is dedicated to the defense of his clients and conducts himself with the utmost professionalism.

”Earlier this year, Bentley was named to Super Lawyers Magazine’s 2021 list of Florida Rising Stars, an honor bestowed upon 2.5-percent of attorneys in the state of Florida.
