DALLAS, TX—Clouse Brown PLLC attorney Camille Avant has earned her Certification in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization – a designation that fewer than 700 attorneys in Texas can claim.
In order to meet the standards for qualification, an attorney must have practiced law in Texas for at least five years, with at least three years of labor and employment law experience. Each of those three years must have included a minimum of 25 percent of substantial involvement in labor and employment law matters. In addition to relevant experience, candidates seeking certification need to provide references from other attorneys and judges, participate in 60 hours of approved labor and employment CLE courses, and sit for a six-hour exam. Following initial certification, re-certification is required every five years.
Ms. Avant’s practice includes defending clients before state and federal courts and administrative agencies. She also represents and counsels employers and employees in all aspects of employment law.
