    I represent vessel owners, stevedores, employers/businesses, and insurance companies including (but not limited to) matters arising under the Jones Act, Death on the High Seas Act, general maritime law, and the Longshore & Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and its extensions.

  2. Employment and labor
    25%
    i represent employers, large and small, in a host of matters including HR matter/training, risk reduction/prevention, compliance, EEO/EPLI matters, OSHA matters, DOL-WHD matters, transactional matters (contracts, licenses, leases, and personnel handbooks and policies), benefit questions, and terminations. I also defend employers against claims and litigation brought under the ADA, FMLA, ADEA, HIPAA, GWCA, LHWCA, OSHA, and other state and federal laws

  3. Litigation
    20%
    I represent employers, insurers, self-insurers, businesses, construction companies/contractors, medical clinics/providers, and non-profits in defending and prosecuting claims before all Alabama and Georgia state and federal courts in such areas as torts/premises liability, contracts, collections, business/commercial disputes, and insurance coverage matters.

  4. Insurance
    15%
    I represent insurers, policyholders, and brokers in coverage disputes and litigation, compliance matters, and subrogation claims before all Alabama and Georgia state and federal courts and administrative agencies. We also offer coverage opinions and prepare reservation of rights letters for when a defense is tendered despite reservations concerning coverage.

  5. Workers compensation
    15%
    I represent employers, insurers, and self-insurers in claims in both the Georgia State and US Longshore (LHWCA/DBA/USDOL - federal) forums. My practice reaches far beyond mere defense of claims to coverage opinions, insurance policy defenses, compliance, and risk reduction/prevention.

I am a Partner with Levy, Thompson, Sibley & Hand, LLC.  Our firm is a full-service law firm for employers, insurance companies, business, medical clinics/providers, non-profit entities, financial institutions, and brokers.  We represent our clients in all areas pertinent to their business.

 

We do NOT represent employee/claimants and/or personal injury plaintiffs.  

 

Professionally, the most important thing to know about me is that I am very dedicated to my clients and my work.  It is my chief goal to ensure that my clients recieve, bar none, the best possible service at fair and marketable rates.  Personally, the single most important thing to know about me is that I am a dedicated and unashamed Christian who loves his wife and family dearly.
