STUART, Fla. – Jennifer L. Williamson, a partner at Crary Buchanan, has received board certification in real estate law from the Florida Bar. This special qualification reflects high standards for a lawyer’s education and competency.
“Jennifer’s achievement benefits clients of Crary Buchanan seeking the highest quality of legal counsel,” said managing partner Mike Crary. “The certification reflects the knowledge, experience and professionalism she exhibits every day in her practice.”
Williamson is the fourth attorney at Crary Buchanan to become board certified. Stephen Beres is board certified in wills, trusts and estates, Jim Bowdish in civil trial law and Linda Weiksnar in civil trial as well.
Only about 2 percent of Florida’s lawyers are board certified. Attorneys must demonstrate experience and expertise, and pass an examination in a particular area of law.
“I wanted to be better trained and more knowledgeable in real estate law,” said Williamson. “With board certification, Crary Buchanan clients know my level of competence in this specialty, plus my character and ethics.”
Williamson graduated cum laude from Boston University School of Law. While at Boston University, she was an articles editor for the American Journal of Law and Medicine, an Edward F. Hennessey Scholar and a Paul J. Liacos Scholar.
Williamson was born, raised and now resides in Okeechobee. She graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a bachelor’s degree in health services. Williamson also holds masters’ degrees in business administration and health administration from Georgia State University.
