Our Workers' Compensation Lawyers
So you want to try to get a great workers’ comp result.
Then you should have great people working on your case. At least that’s what we believe.
We’re your team – and we act like it.
Maybe that’s why our firm has been recognized by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® as one of the “Best Law Firms” for workers’ compensation for the greater Raleigh area3 in 2021.
So who’s on the team?
- Several former defense attorneys and paralegals for insurance companies.
We’ve worked for the “other side,” so we know what you’re up against.
- More than half of our workers’ comp attorneys are NC State Bar Board Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation law.
This is the highest level of specialization available in NC, and only a small percentage of NC attorneys can make that claim.
- Two former North Carolina Industrial Commissioners
The North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) is the impartial agency that administers and enforces workers’ compensation laws.
- A former North Carolina State Senator
He was elected to serve the seventh district of North Carolina for four terms.
- Several recognized experts in workers’ compensation
Several of our attorneys have more than 10 years of experience. Some speak at seminars for other workers’ compensation attorneys. Others have written books about other areas of law, and two have collected several awards for workers’ compensation, including “Best Lawyer”4 for 2021 and “Rising Star”5 for 2013. One was named “Super Lawyer”6 three times since 2014 and “Lawyer of the Year”7 for Raleigh twice in 2015 and 2017.
- Attorneys who give back
Attorneys who join our side do it because they want to be advocates. This takes a certain mindset and special heart for service. And service to others is not something we take lightly. Of our 13 workers’ comp attorneys, 12 are members of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
