After serving on the Guardianship Certification Board since 2006, Ford + Bergner Managing Partner Don D. Ford III was appointed to the Judicial Branch Certification Commission by the Texas Supreme Court.
The 9-member JBCC will combine the certification, registration, licensing, and compliance functions for court reporters, professional guardians, process servers, and licensed court interpreters. The JBCC replaces the Guardianship Certification Board, Court Reporters Certification Board, and the Process Server Review Board, and transfers the Licensed Court Interpreter program to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Members of the JBCC include 5 judges from around the State, 3 lawyers, and one court reporter. Mr. Ford was appointed to the Commission because of his expertise in guardianships and his experience on the Guardianship Certification Board.
