Two Prince Law Office attorneys — Thomas Beveridge and Karl Voigt — have been certified as specialists in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Law Section.
Both lawyers successfully completed the certification process by submitting a variety of documents showing that at least 50 percent of their legal practice is in the specialty field of workers’ compensation, that they have practiced in the field for more than five years, and that they actively participate in Mandatory Continuing Legal Education in workers’ compensation law and related fields. Both lawyers also passed the challenging certification examination that focuses on workers’ compensation law and rules and leading case law.
In 2012, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court approved the PBA Workers’ Compensation Law Section as the first bar association entity in Pennsylvania to certify lawyers in the area of workers’ compensation law.
Because of their successful completion of the certification process, they will be permitted to use the following language when communicating about their certification to clients and to the public: “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.”
