Boetcher Earns Workers’ Comp Specialist Designation

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Martin J. Boetcher, a partner at Harrington, Hoppe & Mitchell, recently achieved board certification by the Ohio State Bar Association as a specialist in workers’ compensation law.

Boetcher’s practice includes representing employers and companies involved in workers’ compensation and employment matters. He also represents companies, private and public organizations in other legal matters.

“This certification is a mark of excellence in this field and a distinguishing accomplishment,” said Kevin P. Murphy, chair of HHM’s management committee. “It reflects Marty’s expertise and strong commitment to meet the highest standards possible. The requirements for this designation are extremely stringent, and only a small percentage of lawyers who practice workers’ comp law achieve it.”

The bar association’s specialist designation requires an advanced course of ongoing legal education, a rigorous written exam and favorable evaluations by other lawyers and judges, as well as measurable involvement in the specialty area.

Boetcher has practiced law for more than 30 years with HHM and its predecessor firms. In addition to specializing in workers’ compensation law, he represents employers in many facets of employment dispute including civil lawsuits, wrongful discharge claims, retaliation claims, discrimination claims and other day-to-day issues dealing with company policies. His work with workers’ compensation claims covers both self-insured and state fund employers. 

Boetcher received his juris doctor degree from the University of Akron School of Law. He is a member of the state bar association’s Labor and Employment and Workers’ Compensation sections. He earned a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering from The Ohio State University.
