HAZLETON (May 20, 2013) —- Two attorneys at the Hazleton law firm of Laputka, Bayless, Ecker & Cohn, P.C. have been certified as specialists in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Law Section.

Bart E. Ecker and Jeffrey C. Majikas successfully completed the certification process by submitting a variety of documents showing that at least 50 percent of their practice is in the specialty field of workers’ compensation, that they have practiced in the field for more than five years, and that they actively participate in Mandatory Continuing Legal Education in workers’ compensation law and related fields. Ecker and Majikas also passed the certification examination that focuses on workers’ compensation law and rules and leading case law.

Because of their successful completion of the certification process, Ecker and Majikas are among the first group of Pennsylvania attorneys permitted to use the following language when communicating about their certification to clients and to the public: “Certified as specialists 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.”

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. Ecker and Majikas are the first two lawyers certified from the Greater Hazleton Area , appearing among four Luzerne County attorneys named in the PBA’s May 20, 2013 announcement.

Founded in 1953, Laputka, Bayless, Ecker & Cohn, P.C. , has provided outstanding legal representation to clients for a wide range of legal issues for six decades. Ecker, whose father was a founding member, concentrates primarily in workers’ compensation. Majikas has practiced with the firm since 1992, focusing on workers’ compensation and social security disability law.
