What is the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers?

The College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers stands as a distinguished organization that honors attorneys who have made a significant contribution to the education, practice, and policy of workers’ compensation law. Established to recognize the outstanding achievements of professionals in this field, the College aims to foster excellence and integrity among workers’ compensation practitioners.

Membership to the College is not automatic; it is a testament to the dedication and expertise of an individual. Candidates must meet stringent requirements which include:

  • A minimum of twenty years in the practice of workers’ compensation law
  • Demonstrable commitment to ethical standards, professionalism, and community service

The College does more than celebrate outstanding professionals. It also plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of workers’ compensation law by promoting scholarly work and research as well as encouraging the exchange of ideas between legal professionals. This exchange of ideas leads to improvements in both the legal framework and the administrative proceedings that govern workers’ compensation law. Furthermore, it ensures a more equitable system for workers who have sustained injuries on the job.

The honor is another example of Mr. Evensen’s continued commitment to excellence in the law and dedication to helping his clients navigate difficult legal issues.
