Summary  of  Workers  Comp  Experience I  have  practiced  workers  comp  law  in  NC  since  1992.  I  have  represented  several  hundred  plantiffs  and  represented  plaintiffs  in  over  two  hundred  mediations.    I  average  attending  approxmately  four  to  five  mediations  a  month.  Approximately  90%  of  my  cases  that  go  to  mediations  settle  at  mediation  or  within  a  few  weeks  threrafter.  I  enjoy  the  process  and  believe  that  I  can  effectively  serve  as  a  mediator  and  help  the  parties  settle    their    cases.  I  understand  workers'  compensation  law  and  understand  the  issue  in  the  cases  and  how  an  effective  mediator  can  greatly  assist  the  parties  in  resolving  the  case  or  at  least  narrowing  the  issues  for  trial.
