I’m kind of an old-school type of guy. When I took my bar exam in February 2007, I hand-wrote my essays, opting to sort through my thoughts on pen and paper rather than relying on a computer system to catch my mistakes. In law school, you have to become somewhat of a writer, as you’re assigned term papers and mock briefings. That skill comes in handy when you begin practicing and are continually writing and corresponding with clients, even if you do so through the help of a legal assistant. About five years ago, I decided to take both the writing and legal skills I had learned in law school and write two booklets for clients. I wrote “Fatal Mistakes Victims of Accidents Make In Georgia” and “9 Common Mistakes that can Destory your Workers' Compensation Case.” When I finished writing these materials, I remember the sense of relief I felt at actually completing these tasks. It’s a fun personal achievement to tack onto my career. From a practical standing, these 40-page booklets were great pieces of marketing material. But from a personal standpoint, I believe these topics and the information I write about are vital to workers and everyday people. For example, in my experience, many people believe they can handle their workers' comp claims on their own. Because workers’ compensation is so readily available to all workers, it’s not something many people think about hiring a lawyer for, and honestly, I hope you never need my expertise to navigate workers’ compensation. Yet, from my years of experience and continued education, I know the various pitfalls workers can fall into when filing a claim with the insurance company. For example, insurance adjusters work for the company specifically to save the insurance company money; they don’t work for the best interests of the people the company serves.
But I work for you. I offer my legal advice and expertise to help workers get the
money they are owed from insurance companies. I work for everyday workers, and I have so much knowledge to share with those I help. These booklets bring the knowledge I possess to a level that
everyone can relate to, giving my readers the agency to seek the help and the compensation they deserve to move on with their lives after an injury. I’ve been meaning to put on my writer’s cap again and write another booklet for Georgians. I have tremendous experience with workers’ compensation cases, and I’d love to detail additional expertise in a booklet as well as update the one I already wrote. The only problem is finding some time in my busy schedule to actually to write this booklet. Thankfully, one thing has changed since law school: I’ve submitted to writing on the computer.
