Three Attorneys Named MSBA Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists

The Minnesota State Bar Association has announced that Ronald B. Hocevar, Scott County Attorney's Office; Neil G. Nelson, Scott County Attorney's Office; and Joseph P. Tamburino, Caplan and Tamburino; have been named MSBA Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists. This certification program is administered by the MSBA and approved by the State Board of Legal Certification.

To become a certified specialist an attorney must complete a rigorous approval process, including an examination in the specialty area, peer review, and documented experience.  Certified attorneys have demonstrated superior knowledge, skill, and integrity in their specific field and can use the designation of MSBA Board Certified Specialist to advertise their credentials.  

The MSBA has been accredited as an independent professional organization for certifying attorneys since 1989. Specialization in Civil Trial Law, Criminal Law, Labor and Employment Law, and Real Property Law has been achieved by fewer than 3% of all licensed Minnesota attorneys.  More information about Certified Legal Specialists is at http://www2.mnbar.org/certify

With over 16,000 members, the MSBA is the state's largest and most influential voluntary organization of attorneys, providing continuing legal education and public service opportunities for lawyers, and assistance to the legal system.
