Atlanta Workers' Compensation Attorney

Advocating for the Rights of All Georgia Employees

Are you thinking "I had an accident at work, what are my rights?"

Getting injured on the job is scary. Not only do you have to worry about your long-term health and mobility, but you also have to worry about missing income, paying medical bills, and supporting your family.

To make matters worse, you may have heard horror stories of friends and co-workers whose workers’ compensation claims were denied for paperwork errors or other seemingly insignificant reasons.

Atlanta Workers' Compensation

Unfortunately, all these concerns are real. Under Georgia’s workers’ compensation system, it has become more and more difficult for injured workers to collect the benefits they need and deserve. The good news, however, is that working with an attorney can make a world of difference.

My Personal Workers' Compensation Experience Informs My Professional Practice 

Before becoming a lawyer, I had the opportunity to work as a commercial fisherman in Alaska, which is statistically among the deadliest occupations in the United States. After suffering a serious hand injury in a work-related boating accident, I experienced the frustrations and uncertainties of being out of work and trying to navigate the bureaucracy of the workers’ compensation system.

Years later, as a workers' compensation lawyer, I spend my days ensuring others don't have to go through a similar debacle. I'm proud to help Georgia's workers in all industries. I help workers who suffer serious neck and back injuries. I help individuals receive compensation for injuries suffered due to repetitive motions.

I help you. I have enormous respect for individuals who work hard—at any job—and I fight to help all injured workers collect the benefits they are entitled to under Georgia law.
