In May 2013, Ron Calhoon was certified as specialist in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Law Section.
He successfully completed the certification process by submitting a variety of documents showing that at least 50% of his legal practice is in the specialty field of workers’ compensation, that we have practiced in the field for more than five years, and that he actively participated in Mandatory Continuing Legal Education in workers’ compensation law and related fields. We also passed the certification examination that focuses on workers’ compensation law, rules, regulations 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.
Only those attorneys obtaining this certification are permitted to claim to be “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.”
