Tom Kieselbach Presented the 2017 Class of Fellows at The College of Workers Compensation Lawyers Annual Induction Dinner

Tom Kieselbach  presented the 2017 Class of Fellows  at the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Induction Dinner in Phoenix on March 18, 2017.  Thirty attorneys and judges from twenty states were honored. The College was created to honor lawyers and judges nationally for their excellence.  Fellows must possess the highest professional qualifications and ethical standards.  Fellows have to demonstrate scholarship, advocacy skill, civility, and the respect of their peers.

The College honored Franklin Roosevelt’s Secretary of Labor, Frances Perkins, as a Workers Compensation Legend. Secretary Perkins was instrumental in creating Social Security and implementing the New Deal. She is the third individual to be honored as a Legend by the College.  Her grandson accepted her Award.

Tom was selected as a Charter member of the College in 2007. He is currently on the Board of Governors and serves as Chair of the Nominating Committee.  Mark Kleinschmidt was selected as a Fellow in 2011, but unfortunately was not able to attend the Induction Dinner.

The College’s annual meeting and Induction Dinner are held in conjunction with the ABA/WC annual seminar.
