Deuterman Law Group attorney Christine Burnside has earned the status of Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability law. This designation is a testament to Burnside’s expertise, her performance on behalf of clients and her reputation in the legal community.
The N.C. State Bar, through the Board of Legal Specialization, determines which attorneys statewide become board-certified specialists. To become legal specialists, attorneys must have practiced for a minimum of five years. They also must undergo peer review by other attorneys and judges, participate in continuing legal education in the subject matter and pass a board exam.
The N.C. State Bar offers this certification as a service to the public to help them identify lawyers who are most qualified to represent them. Board-certified attorneys have demonstrated special knowledge, skill and proficiency in a particular area of the law. In North Carolina, only 42 attorneys are board-certified specialists in Social Security Disability law.
The Deuterman Law Group is proud to have another attorney achieve board certification.
Christine Burnside’s colleague and husband, Ben Burnside, is also a Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability law. DLG president and founder Dan Deuterman, as well as associate attorneys Casey S. Francis and Zach Marquand are Board Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation.
At the Deuterman Law Group, Burnside focuses her practice on Social Security Disability cases, helping clients secure the benefits they have been denied.
Burnside graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007, and she earned her juris doctor from the UNC School of Law in 2012. She was admitted to the N.C. State Bar later the same year.
Burnside is a member of North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA), and the Greensboro Bar Association (GBA).
