Summary  of  Workers  Comp  Experience I  have  been  practiciing  law  in  Catawba  County  for  24  years.    During  that  period  of  time  I  have  represented  many  individuals,  employers,  and  insurance  carriers  in  workers  compensation  matters,  too  many  for  me  to  accurately  estimate.    I  have  argued  a  number  of  cases  before  the  Full  Commission  and  the  NC  Court  of  Appeals.        I  am  currentlly  mediating  between  3  and  5  cases  per  week  in  addition  to  maintaining  an  active  workers  compensation  practice.    At  this  point  in  time,  I  conduct  about  90%  of  those  mediations  in  my  office  due  to  time  constraints.    I  have  on  occasion  traveled  to  nearby  towns    to  mediate  cases.
