Summary  of  Workers  Comp  Experience I  have  practiced  law  since  1966  with  the  law  firm  of  Battle  Winslow,  Scott  &  Wiley,  in  Rocky  Mount,  N.C.  During  most  of  that  time  I  was  responsible  for  almost  all  of  the  firm's  workers'  compensation  cases.  For  twenty  to  twenty-five  years  workers'  compensation  case  constituted  about  50%  of  my  practice,  primarily  representing  Employers  or  Insurance  Carriers,  but  occasionally  representing  an  Employee,  and  I  appeared  in  hundreds  of  case  before  the  Commission  in  almost  all  of  the  northeastern  counties  of  N.C.  The  balance  of  my  practice  has  primarily  consisted  of  bodily  injury  civil  litigation. 

I  have  been  certified  by  the  N.C.  Administrative  Offices  of  the  Courts  to  conduct  mediated  settlement  conferences  in  Superior  Court    cases  since  1977  and  have  mediated  more  than  60  Superior  Court  cases.

I  intend  to  cut  back  my  litigation  practice  over  the  next  few  years,  and  would  like  to  do  more  mediation.
