Ann M. Joiner is a partner at Swift Currie with more than 10 years of experience practicing primarily in the area of workers’ compensation defense. Ann has significant experience representing employers, self-insureds and third-party administrators in numerous workers’ compensation claims throughout the state of Georgia. Ann represents clients in the waste removal, retail and food and beverage industries, to name a few.
Ann values developing meaningful relationships in her practice. In addition to her relationships with her clients, Ann also has personal relationships with the claimants’ attorneys. Litigation is by nature adversarial but she believes being civil and professional with opposing counsel garners fruitful results.
Ann is committed to being a trusted partner with great relationships with her clients, and she ensures that she is available whenever they need her. Ann’s clients trust her and know she is dedicated to solving their legal issues promptly.
Ann has lived in numerous locations in the Midwest and the South and has had to adapt to different personalities and perspectives. She translates her adaptability into her work life by creating tailor-made strategies for each matter she handles. No two cases are the same. Therefore, she treats each case as a new challenge.
Ann frequently presents to employers and insurers on workers’ compensation defense strategies, light duty return to work issues and employer compliance with statutory rules.
