Specialty Certification Information

Certified in Workers' Compensation -

Florida Bar Board Certification in Workers' Compensation - Under Rule 6-11.2, the term "Workers' Compensation" is defined as "the analysis and litigation of problems or controversies arising out of the Florida Workers' Compensation Law" under Chapter 440 of the Florida Statutes.

In Florida, workers' compensation attorneys often go to trial to prosecute or defend a claim which can include a claim for attorney's fees.

Attorneys also participate in rule nisi petitions and hearings for the enforcement of a workers' compensation order.

Many of these hearings and trials take place within the jurisdiction of the Florida Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims.

Workers' Compensation attorneys in Florida also handle appeals in federal workers' compensation matters, Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act matters, and other circuit court actions.

Florida Lawyers certified as specialist in Workers' Compensation by the Florida Board of Legal Specialization have demonstrated substantial involvement in this area of the law.
