The Benefits of Hiring a State Bar Certified Attorney in Worker’s Compensation Law
There are a lot of attorneys throughout the state and country who claim to “specialize” in workers’ compensation law. However, many are not State Bar certified specialists.
In order to become one, a lawyer must undergo a rigorous vetting and testing process. It is a difficult status to obtain, which is why you can be confident in having a state bar-certified workers’ compensation attorney on your side if you are experiencing issues with your benefits.
To become a state bar certified in workers’ compensation law, a lawyer must:
- Pass multiple written exams
- Been in practice for several years
- Devote a significant part of his/her practice to the specialty (i.e. workers’ compensation)
- Receive favorable evaluations from judges and lawyers
- Complete at least 45 hours of continuing education
- Be in good standing with the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board
