For nearly five decades, our firm has developed and maintained one of the largest and most knowledgeable workers' compensation practices in the Southeast. With more than 40 attorneys practicing in workers' compensation, we represent multiple insurers, self-insureds and servicing agents in the defense of workers' compensation claims. We have a long-standing reputation throughout the State for providing the highest quality and most effective representation in workers' compensation defense cases.
Our firm’s name has become synonymous with the practice of workers’ compensation with the initial publication of Georgia Workers’ Compensation Law and Practice
, by James B. Hiers, Jr. and Robert R. Potter, which is now in its fifth edition, and supplemented annually along with Todd A. Brooks. Our team of attorneys represents clients in every corner of Georgia and appears regularly before each of the states' 25 Administrative Law Judges and the State Board of Workers' Compensation.
We also sponsor educational seminars to make sure that our clients are kept abreast of the changes in this ever expanding area of practice. We encourage our clients to allow us to come in to their workplace to provide assistance and advice in the correct handling and administration of workers’ compensation claims.
Members of our Workers' Compensation practice group contribute to the legislative process each year, both by serving on committees appointed by the State Board of Workers' Compensation and as lobbyists for clients at the state legislature. Experts in their field, many of our attorneys specializing in workers' compensation defense have served as chairpersons for workers' compensation seminars given throughout Georgia, including the Georgia Self Insurers Association, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, and the Institute of Continuing Legal Education. We are also very active in organizing and presenting the annual seminar sponsored by the Georgia State Board of Worker's Compensation, as well as the Georgia portion of the Multi-State Breakout Seminar during the annual Florida Workers' Compensation Institute.
