Preston Holloway defends workers’ compensation claims on behalf of employers, insurers, self-insureds and third-party administrators throughout Georgia.
For more than 10 years Preston has represented clients in the insurance, construction and quick-service restaurant sectors. He is also experienced in handling workers’ compensation challenges that are unique to staffing agencies. For example, he works with those whose employees can disproportionately hail from troubled backgrounds, who lack training needed to meet heavy-duty job requirements and who receive insufficient supervision.
Preston advises clients to manage risk and resolve disputes in a quick and economical manner, including weighing the costs of litigation against posturing for a favorable settlement. He is experienced in all phases of dispute resolution, having deposed a wide range of witnesses, including medical professionals. In addition to defending claims at the hearing level, he also realizes the value that alternative dispute resolution can have in certain matters.
Before beginning his legal career, Preston studied broadcast journalism and honed many of the skills necessary to effectively understand and litigate workers’ compensation claims, including investigation, research and the ability to leverage that information to communicate a compelling narrative.
His priority is to positively position his client in the legal matter, and to that end, he ensures they are well-informed throughout the case to best understand their legal options.
Preston brings a service-oriented approach to his practice, providing adaptive and organized legal counsel in the most challenging of cases.
