5/14/15 – Matt Wilson Section Chair Farewell
May 14, 2015
(Philadelphia, PA) – Martin Law partner, Matthew L. Wilson, conducted his final section meeting as Chair of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Pennsylvania Bar Association on May 7. The section, under Matt’s leadership, engaged in several major projects this past year including a Bench-Bar Think Tank that included 14 judges and 14 attorneys, as well as numerous Centennial celebrations. In a letter to the section Wilson said, “As Chair, I quickly learned that nothing is achieved without the support, hard work and guidance of many other people. This is my attempt at thank you.”
Wilson has practiced exclusively in Workers’ Compensation for a quarter of a century. For a dozen years, he has served as a contributing author to the “bible” of the practice, “Workers’ Compensation Practice & Procedure,” a 900-page textbook distributed at the biannual Pennsylvania Bar Institute conference of the same name. Additionally, he has served since 2009 on the state bar section subcommittee that formulated the groundbreaking certification standards unveiled in 2012 and actively participates in their ongoing implementation. He is also a member of the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Associations as well as the Workplace Injury Litigation Group. He was inducted into The College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in 2011.
