Matthew Healey, an attorney at the Law Offices James Scott Farrin and a 2017 Best Lawyers in America* workers’ compensation attorney of the year for the Raleigh area, was a speaker at the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) Continuing Legal Education Seminar, September 16th, at NCAJ headquarters in Raleigh.
The all-day event, which was held at NCAJ headquarters in Raleigh, focused on “Quirky Issues in Workers’ Comp.”
Healey, who is a long-time member of the NCAJ, spoke on the topic of “How to Pay Back Medical Providers in Settled but Denied Claims.”
“The NCAJ puts on some of the best CLE programs in the state of North Carolina, and it was a privilege to be a part of this program. The issue of paying medical providers in denied claims is extremely important. Because the law in this area is a bit unsettled, it was the perfect topic for a fruitful discussion among legal peers,” Healey said.
Healey joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2015 and was recently selected by his peers to be among the 2017 Best Lawyers in America* in the field of workers’ compensation law, the fifth consecutive year Healey received this award. Healey was also listed in the publication as Raleigh’s workers’ compensation “Lawyer of the Year”* for 2017, a designation he had previously received in 2015. Additionally, North Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine has listed Healey as a “Super Lawyer”** since 2014, and “Rising Star”** from 2010 to 2013.
The North Carolina Advocates for Justice is a nonpartisan association of legal professionals dedicated to protecting people’s rights through community, education, and advocacy for over 50 years. Healey has been a CLE speaker with the NCAJ for nearly eight years.
