Attorney Casey T. Day
Casey Day joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2018 as a workers’ compensation attorney with a strong history in workers’ compensation law for both the defense and plaintiff sides. She also has past experience in employment and labor law matters.
Casey received her J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law at Chapel Hill, and a B.A. in Political Science and Economics, also from University of North Carolina. Her passion for helping level the playing field between employees and their employers began in law school. As co-founder and president of the Labor and Employment Law Society at UNC School of Law, Casey coordinated a presentation on the unique challenges that employees face when social media overlaps with the workplace. Additionally, one of the first cases she handled in school was a pro bono matter where she represented an employee in a claim for unpaid wages. She also represented the State of North Carolina in prosecuting an employer for an OSHA violation which created an unsafe work environment. Since that time, she has had a passion for advocating for employees to try to help them receive the benefits to which they may be entitled.
“After being involved in all levels of workers’ compensation litigation from both the plaintiff’s and defense perspective, I know my true passion lies in helping individuals. Nothing beats the reward of helping an injured worker fight for the benefits that they potentially need and deserve. I understand that there are more than just the facts of their case, but that the process can also take a real emotional toll on both the individual and their family. My goal as an advocate for the injured worker is to really listen to their questions and concerns and to guide them through the workers’ compensation process. It is important to me that my clients feel heard and that they know that I am prepared to fight for their interests.”
Casey is licensed in North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina. She is a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Educational Association, , Injured Workers’ Advocates, and Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. Casey has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America on the “Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch” 3 list in 2021 and 2022 and by Super Lawyers on the “Rising Star”4 list in 2022 for Workers’ Compensation Law – Claimants.
