Attached is a Press Release from the PA Bar Association regarding the recent PA Supreme Court Order which approved certification for Workers Compensation Attorneys in Pennsylvania. The need for such certification arose as Attorneys are not permitted to advertise that that they "Specialize" in a certain area of the law unless they are certified. Once certfication occurs injured workers should be able to choose attorneys who "specialize" in representing injured workers in Workers Compensation cases and receive appropriate legal representation.
