About J.

Learn J.’s areas of practice.

I'm tremendously blessed to be called to represent working South Carolinians who've suffered the misfortune of being injured at their jobs.  It's very fulfilling to be able to help people when they need help the most. 

I am one of three former Commissioners of the Sout Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission who works at Mickle and Bass, LLC. I was appointed to the Commission by Governor Jim Hodges and served on the Commission from 2002 to 2008. Governor Hodges chose me to serve as the Commission’s Chairman from 2002-2005. 

I have practiced law in personal injury firms throughout South Carolina. Over the years of my personal injury practice, I have dedicated myself to representing individuals injured at work, as well as victims of auto wrecks and other accidents. Working out of the firm’s Myrtle Beach office, I remain dedicated to protecting the rights of my clients against the abuse of insurance companies.

Very Professional, Courteous and Extremely Helpful
I have had the pleasure of having Alan Bass as my attorney for several years. My first case will Alan was for a shoulder injury that I sustained and subsequently needed several surgeries to fix. Without Alan's expert advise and help my shoulder would not be in as good of shape as it is today. So naturally when I was involved in a serious traffic collision that caused me to injure my back the first person I thought of going to was Alan. After almost 4 years and a major back surgery I can honestly say that Alan and his staff has worked tirelessly for me and my case to ensure that I received all the necessary treatment to get me back to as close to normal as I could get. I know that my current case that was just recently settled with my back was very challenging at times especially due to the circumstances surrounding it but through it all Alan remained positive and extremely helpful. I have been honored to have Alan and his staff stand behind me and fight for me and my rights. My family and myself both think extremely highly of him and firm. I work in an very dangerous field and the chance of injury is always around the corner. If I ever find myself in the need for the type of representation that Alan has provided he would be my first and only choice to take on my case. I highly recommend Alan and his firm to represent anyone with a workers comp case to not only remain professional throughout the process but to genuinely show they care and make sure that your needs and rights are protected as they fight every step of the way for you. Thank you Alan for all you have done and continue to do for me and my case.

Excellent Staff!
Mr. Bass and his entire staff were professional, courteous, prompt, and knowledgeable during the entire process. Mr. Bass was always prompt on returning calls and keeping me updated on the progression of my case. I would not hesitate to recommend or use Mr. Bass and his team again in the future.

Very professional and does great work!
Mr. Bass did an amazing job with my workers comp claim that I had with the state after my injury. He was very professional throughout the duration of my claim and always made sure to get back with me in a timely manner. From start to finish I can't say enough about how pleased I was with Mr. Bass and his staff. I was involved with a very unprofessional law firm before I came to Mr. Bass and my not so pleasant situation became very good after I hired him. I will and have HIGHLY recommended Mr. Bass to my friends and colleges that ask about hiring a lawyer!
