Overview

Attorney Dustin S. Thompson exclusively represents employers, self-insurers, insurers and third-party administrators in workers’ compensation claims. Dustin was raised in rural Camilla, Georgia and worked several jobs, from a watermelon farm to a policy think tank, before becoming an attorney at Swift Currie.

Dustin has represented a wide spectrum of employers throughout Georgia in workers’ compensation claims, ranging from mom-and-pop businesses to Fortune 500 companies. He has experience representing employers and insurers in the construction, retail, restaurant, sanitation, manufacturing, trucking, farm and food processing industries to name a few. The years of experience, relationships and knowledge garnered through helping those diverse clients successfully litigate and deal with either their first workers’ compensation claim or their 1,000th claim has allowed Dustin to develop an effective and successful workers’ compensation defense practice.
