Galfand Berger attorney, Michael McGurrin, has been “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.”
This distinction did not come about easily. It required hard work and commitment.
Mike successfully completed the 2015 certification process by passing the certification examination that focuses on workers’ compensation law, rules and cases. In addition, he submitted a variety of documents showing that at least 50 percent of his legal practice is in the specialty field of workers’ compensation, that he has practiced in the field for more than five years, and that he actively participates in Mandatory Continuing Legal Education in workers’ compensation law and related fields.
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. Mike was one of only 20 lawyers who earned certification in 2015!
Mike’s practice area includes Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, Employment Discrimination and Labor Law. He is a member of the National Employee Lawyers Association, the AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee, the American Association for Justice(AAJ), and the Pennsylvania Bar Association. Mike is a frequent lecturer on Workers’ Compensation, Employment Discrimination and Labor Law issues.
