DGC Attorney in Long Beach, Brandon Thorson, as of December 28, 2021, has earned his Certificate of Specialization in Workers’ Compensation Law from the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization.

Becoming a Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law with the State Bar of California is a process which can only be undertaken every two years.

The process begins with a comprehensive exam lasting 6 ½ hours.  There are eight essays to write in a morning session lasting 4 hours, and 75 multiple-choice questions to answer in an afternoon session lasting 2 ½ hours.

In addition, applicants must submit written evaluations from judges and other attorneys, along with at least 45 MCLE hours.  Subsequently, a final decision on certification generally takes six months.

Certified Specialists are recognized as Statewide authorities on issues of importance within their specialization and are identified as such when interviewed by media.  Only specialists can be searched by practice area on the California State Bar website.
