Bob Bernstein Named President-elect of American Board of Certification
Robert S. Bernstein‘s newest credential is one more piece of evidence that proves his commitment to superior industry-wide standards. The managing partner of Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. was named president-elect of the American Board of Certification (ABC).
Bernstein will hold this title for one year, during which he will serve on the executive committee and assist the president. In December of 2005 he will automatically become president of the Board.
The ABC is the premier American Bar Association-approved certifier of bankruptcy and creditors’ rights lawyers.
“I am honored to take on this responsibility,” says Bernstein. “By overseeing the certification of attorneys, the ABC plays an important role in upholding high standards and uncompromising ethics throughout our industry.”
Bernstein is no stranger to the American Board of Certification. He served as treasurer for the past two years. Previous to that, he was the chair of the Standards Committee, which reviews attorneys’ applications to become certified.
Bernstein currently serves as chair of the Professional Responsibility Committees of both the Allegheny County Bar Association and the Commercial Law League of America.
Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. is a family-owned and managed law firm in Pittsburgh, PA, with a thirty-five-year history of providing expert counsel to clients throughout the country in the areas of creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, retail and commercial collections, lease enforcement, and mortgage foreclosure.
The firm is deeply committed to taking a leadership role in the legal field. This commitment manifests in the awards and accolades its lawyers regularly win-Bob Bernstein’s recent designation as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer being just one example.
“Keeping our industry strong, professional, and ethical is important to me personally,” asserts Bernstein. “But these issues are even more important to our clients. That alone is reason enough for me to accept the ABC position.”
