The dedicated lawyers at Rechtman & Spevak are committed to the service of both their community and the law. To increase their personal knowledge and help further the ethical practice of law in Georgia, David Rechtman and Jaret Spevak participate in a number of professional associations. These associations all seek to protect the rights of Georgia citizens and promote the fairness and justice of our legal system.
Atlanta Bar Association
The mission of the Atlanta Bar Association is to maintain professionalism and the fair administration of justice in the Atlanta area. It offers members ample opportunities to get involved in both legal groups and community outreach programs. Both David Rechtman and Jaret Spevak are active members of this local legal group. Mr. Rechtman served as Chairman of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Atlanta Bar Association from 2000 to 2001. Mr. Spevak has been an active member of the Workers' Compensation Section since 1995.
The largest voluntary bar association in the Southeast, the Atlanta Bar Association offers professional, social, financial, charitable, and civic programs to citizens. The association also provides courses to promote the continuing education of state lawyers in many different practice areas. This focus on skills enhancement fosters a community of professionals who serve their communities with knowledge and integrity.
State Bar of Georgia
Our attorneys are both also active members in good standing with the state bar association. Both Mr. Rechtman and Mr. Spevak have been affiliated with the group for over 20 years. Established initially as the Georgia Bar Association in 1883, this professional organization fosters ethical conduct among its members and addresses the legal needs of the state. It seeks to uphold "the principles of duty and service to the public; to improve the administration of justice; and to advance the science of the law."
The State Bar of Georgia offers a wide range of services to Georgians, including referrals, ethics information, arbitration, professionalism programs, and more.
Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group
Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG) is a national organization which aims to support the interests of employees who are injured or fall ill due to work-related events. The group assists legal representatives to advocate for the rights of the injured through research and community education. Attorney David Rechtman is a member of this organization.
Additionally, senior partner Mr. Rechtman was recognized by WILG as a “2016 Top Injured Workers Attorney” for his work. Each year, WILG acknowledges lawyers around the country, citing those who “demonstrate the most outstanding leadership skills, maintain an excellent reputation, and have a sincere passion for the practice of representing injured workers.” 2016 marks the third time Mr. Rechtman received this recognition for his outstanding professional merit as one of America's leading attorneys representing injured workers.
Georgia Trial Lawyers Association
Mr. Rechtman is an active member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, a group dedicated to ensuring the citizens of Georgia understand their rights to a fair trial and that those rights are protected by the state. The association's members seek to preserve our nation’s justice system and demand on behalf of their clients that all Georgians have full and free access to the courts.
Mr. Rechtman and other members of the association are not afraid to head to trial to protect the rights of citizens and defend the integrity of the civil justice system in Georgia.
