Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Bullivant Houser Bailey PC, a nationally recognized law firm with offices in Washington, Oregon and California, is pleased to announce that Marilyn Raia and Norm Ronneberg have been awarded designation as Certified Specialists in Admiralty and Maritime Law by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

This legal certification program is the first for admiralty and maritime lawyers west of the Mississippi. To earn the certification, the bar imposes a rigorous application process based on experience handling maritime cases (e.g. trials, transactions, etc.) and 45 hours of legal education and/or teaching experience. According to Firm President, Jess Millikan, "We've always known that Norm and Marilyn are tremendously skilled admiralty practitioners; we're pleased that now the State Bar's specialist certification can give them public recognition for their expertise."

California attorneys who are certified as specialists have demonstrated a high level of experience in the specialty field, fulfilled ongoing education requirements and been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work. Only these attorneys can advertise or identify themselves as "certified" specialists in California. The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization certifies attorneys for specialization or recognizes certification by an accredited organization.
