About me

I am a North Carolina Board Certified Workers' Compensation Specialist and have been an attorney in North Carolina for 35 years.   My partner, S. Janson Grimes and I founded the law firm Grimes and Teich in 1979.   With the addition of attorney Scott M. Anderson a few years ago, we became Grimes Teich Anderson LLP.   Our firm now serves clients in 8 offices in North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina.  Our main priority has always been to help protect the rights of the injured whether they are hurt on the job, in other types of accidents or because of bad drugs and defect products.  We also represent clients with employment law issues including, but not limited to, discrimination and FMLA concerns.  Grimes Teich Anderson also represents veterans with veterans' law issues.
