I joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2003 and became a shareholder with the Firm in 2008. I am a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law. I received my J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law, and my B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Prior to joining the Firm, I worked at the North Carolina Industrial Commission as a Special Deputy Commissioner.
I enjoy the opportunity to help people. The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin Workers' Compensation Department allows me to practice substantive law while helping people, representing them to get the proper medical care and disability benefits to which they may be entitled.
In addition to being a Board Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law, I am a member of the national organizations American Association for Justice and the Workplace Injury Litigation Group, as well as the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. I was also appointed by North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue to a two-and-a-half year term on the North Carolina Commission for Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services.
