I am also a member of the Workers Injury Law Group and the American Bar Association. I was sworn in as a member of the Bar of the United States Supreme Court in 2006. I have been selected as a Super Lawyers/Rising Star from 2005-present. From 2010-2011 I served on the Worker's Compensation Centennial Committee.
