About me

Fred Conklin has practiced in the area of workers' compensation law for 14 years. Before he became a workers' compensation attorney, Mr. Conklin worked as an operations manager for a trucking company, and later for a national labor contracting firm.  He received his undergraduate degree in Business and Economics from West Virginia Wesleyan College, and attended law school at Michigan State University where he received his Juris Doctor, cum laude.  He has been licensed to practice law since 1999.  Mr. Conklin has a passion for his work and helping others, and he prides himself on his dedication to each and every client.  He feels strongly that no client is more important than another, and that each case requires focus and attention regardless of the issues at hand.  Mr. Conklin serves clients throughout the state of Georgia.
