AS SPECIALIST IN SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY LAW

                                                
Raleigh attorney Cynthia M. Currin was recently certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a specialist in Social Security Disability.  She is one of 33 lawyers statewide to achieve this distinction.  Ms. Currin, a partner in the Raleigh firm of Crisp, Page & Currin, L.L.P. since 1983, concentrates her practice in the areas of social security disability and electric law.  She received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1977.  She received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1980.  Ms. Currin is also a member of the following:  North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers, North Carolina Bar Association, American Bar Association, American Association of Justice, Wake County Bar Association and North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys. 

Ms. Currin is available for consultations on social security disability issues.  Over the past 27 years, she has successfully represented hundreds of clients with social security disability claims.   

The North Carolina State Bar certifies lawyers as specialists in designated practice areas as a service to the public.  The program assists members of the public in the selection of legal counsel by identifying lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill, and proficiency in certain areas of law.  The program also gives lawyers a credible way of making their expertise known to the public and other lawyers.  

To be certified as a specialist in a practice area, a lawyer must have been in practice for at least five years, devote a significant part of her practice to the specialty area, attend continuing legal education (CLE) seminars in the specialty, be favorably evaluated by other lawyers and judges (peer review), and pass a written examination in the specialty practice area.  For more information about the North Carolina Legal Specialization program, and to view a list of legal specialists by practice area, please visit the Legal Specialization website at www.nclawspecialists.org or call the State Bar at 919-828-4620.
