“A national CLE for workers compensation can be difficult to organize because workers’ compensation laws are so state specific. But there are some trends that effect all practitioners and federal laws that impact the workers’ compensation practice that you can and should discuss at a national level,” Rehm said.
“ I appreciate the support of the firm in being able to serve AAJ in this capacity. I am also thankful to AAJ staff for their help in organizing the CLE. I would also like that thank my colleagues Robert Riojas, Deb Kohl and Aida Carini for taking the time to write papers and present on the CLE.”
Congratulations to Jon Rehm for being awarded an Excellence Award from the New Lawyers Division of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) for the second straight year. Jon’s award was for his continuing efforts to help elect federal candidates who favor workplace safety, workplace fairness and consumer rights. Attorneys who are AAJ members and admitted to the practice of law for less than 10 years may participate in the New Lawyers Division, according to the AAJ web site.
Jon’s service to AAJ was part of the reason he was selected by the board of the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys (NATA) as one of their two delegates to AAJ. As an AAJ delegate, Jon will represent the interests of Nebraska trial attorneys at AAJ. Jon was also appointed to the NATA board because of his work as the editor of the NATA journal, The Prairie Barrister. Last fall, Jon started a section of the Barrister that focuses on recent decisions so that Nebraska trial lawyers can be up to date on case law. Jon personally summarizes workers’ compensation and employee’s rights cases so that his clients and the clients of Rehm, Bennett & Moore can benefit from understanding the latest developments in the law. Jon is also active in social media. You can follow him on Twitter at @JonRehmEsq and, in addition to blogging on our firm blog, he also maintains a personal blog at http://nebraskaworkplacelawyer.wordpress.com/.
