RE: Appointment of Deputy Commissioners

I am pleased to announce the appointment of three Deputy Commissioners of the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Each of these individuals already has a distinguished record of service to the State and contributions to the workers’ compensation system. 

Adrian A. Phillips holds a B.S. degree from Bennett College and earned a J.D. degree from North Carolina Central University in 1993.  She is currently employed as an Assistant Attorney General in the Tort Claims Section of the Department of Justice and assigned to the Industrial Commission. She previously prosecuted Medicaid fraud cases for the Department of Justice. Phillips also has served as an Assistant District Attorney in District 9A (Caswell and Person Counties) from 1994 through 1998.


Nancy Warren Gregory holds B.A. and J.D. degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has completed Duke University’s Private Adjudication Center’s mediation training and is a member of the Wake County and North Carolina Bar Associations.  She currently serves as an Agency Legal Specialist at the North Carolina Industrial Commission. She was previously an associate with the law firm of Yates, McLamb & Weyher, L.L.P., practicing primarily in the area of workers’ compensation.

George R. Hall, III holds his B.A. degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and obtained his J.D. degree from the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law in Lansing, Michigan in 1995. He is a member of the Wake County Bar Association.  He joined the Industrial Commission in April 1999 as an Agency Legal Specialist. He was named a Special Deputy Commissioner in November 2000, and is currently serving in both positions. Halls’ appointment will result in his assignment to the Deputy Commissioner Section on a full-time basis.

We welcome these highly qualified Deputy Commissioners.
