The specialist

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , at 10:02 pm by Tom Jacobson

I am pleased to announce that the Minnesota State Bar Association has certified me as a Labor and Employment Law Specialist.  The certified specialist designation is earned by leading attorneys who have completed a rigorous approval process, including an examination in the specialty area, peer review, and documented experience. Certified attorneys have demonstrated superior knowledge, skill and integrity in their specific field and can use the designation of specialist to advertise their credentials.

This Certification program is administered by the MSBA and has been approved by the State Board of Legal Certification.  The MSBA has been accredited as an independent professional organization for certifying attorneys as Criminal Law Specialists, Real Property Law Specialists, Civil Trial Law Specialists and Labor and Employment Law Specialists. This achievement has been earned by fewer than 3% of all licensed Minnesota attorneys.   More information about Certified Legal Specialists is at http://www2.mnbar.org/certify.

With over 16,000 members, the MSBA is the state’s largest and most influential voluntary organization of attorneys, providing continuing legal education and public service opportunities for lawyers, and assistance to the legal system.

    You were too humble when you omitted mentioning that you are the only attorney in Central MN that is a Certified Labor and Employment Law Specialist! Just a little plug from your proud and loving wife! 🙂
