In March 2014, three more Martin Law partners took the Workers’ Compensation Certification exam held for the second time by the Pennsylvania Bar Association. We are proud to announce that all three, John Dogum, Amit Shah and Joseph Conlan, have been certified as a specialist in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Section on Workers’ Compensation Law as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Only 181 attorneys in the entire state of Pennsylvania have been certified as a specialist in workers’ compensation and Martin Law continues the tradition of highly knowledgeable attorneys –with six total workers’ compensation specialists! Three attorneys, George Martin, Joe Huttemann and Al Carlson, became certified in 2013.
The exam is meant to recognize attorneys in the specialty of workers’ compensation and allow them to stand out from attorneys whom dedicate just a small percentage of their practice to workers’ compensation matters.
The certification process requires that attorneys sit for a four-hour exam, after proving that they have actively practiced law for more than five years and dedicate at least half of their practice to workers’ compensation claims. The hope is that this process will allow for better legal representation in workers’ compensation claims by allowing the public to know that a specific attorney is well-qualified to represent them.
