Certified Labor And Employment Law Specialist

Attorney Tom Jacobson is a Certified Labor and Employment Law Specialist.

The certified specialist credential must be earned. Attorneys who are certified specialists have met the exacting standards established by the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) and approved by the Minnesota State Board of Legal Certification. Fewer than three percent of all registered attorneys in Minnesota are certified specialists in their field.

As noted by the MSBA, the Certified Legal Specialist designation is one way for the public to identify those attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in their specialty area and to find an attorney whose qualifications match their legal needs…. Certification programs serve a public function by enhancing public access to qualified practitioners. These programs provide assurance that the specialist has been found to possess the expertise, experience, and knowledge necessary to provide quality service…. The designation “Certified Specialist” provides the professional with a time-honored method of informing the public and their peers that their specialty qualifications have been tested, documented, and certified by an accrediting organization.

MSBA certified specialists are tested, documented and audited annually to ensure that they are maintaining certification standards.
