 Craig H. Livingston and Frank DiMarzio are both Certified Workers’ Compensation Law Attorneys. To qualify for certification, an attorney must be at least a five-year member of the NJ Bar and have completed numerous continuing legal education courses. In addition, the attorney must show a substantial involvement in the preparation of litigated matters, and demonstrate primary responsibility for a large number of trials in the New Jersey Workers Compensation Courts.

Less than 1% of New Jersey's attorneys are certified by the Supreme Court as having the credentials and experience required for this distinction, and even fewer of that number are petitioner's attorneys who represent the injured worker! The application for Certification requires attorneys to list at least 120 workers compensation claims that have been settled or handled to conclusion within the three years immediately preceding the application. Most petitioner's attorneys simply do not handle that many cases so the overwhelming majority of Certified Workers' Compensation Attorneys are respondent attorneys who represent the employers. Craig Livingston and Dennis Baptista are two of fewer than 40 such petitioner’s attorneys who represent injured workers in New Jersey to have been so certified.

Further requirements include an unblemished reputation. Applicants must submit a list of other attorneys and judges who can attest to their character and ability. Finally, the applicant must pass a full day's written examination covering various aspects of workers compensation law practice.

The Certification program provides a useful consumer guide to identifying attorneys with specific legal experience in handling Workers Compensation matters. Certified attorneys may retain the distinction for only seven years before applying for recertification, at which time they must satisfy another set of requirements, insuring they have retained their competence.
