His certification required him to pass a written exam, demonstrate substantial involvement in workers' compensation, fulfill enhanced educational requirements and undergo a rigorous peer evaluation.
Bob has argued before the Supreme Court of Ohio and has lectured on several workers' compensation issues. He is currently Of Counsel to Elk & Elk representing injured workers before the Bureau of Workers' Compensation and the Industrial Commission of Ohio.
