The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is pleased to welcome NC Workers’ Compensation Attorney Ryan Bliss to the firm’s Workers’ Compensation Department.
Bliss has experience working on both sides of the Workers’ Compensation law, having worked on the defense side prior to joining the firm. In addition to Workers’ Compensation, Bliss’ experience in law encompasses several areas including family law, real estate, trust and estates.
Bliss enjoys working on the side of the law that helps injured NC workers because he values the relationships that develop. Bliss is able to develop strong, meaningful relationships with his clients while helping them navigate the complicated Workers’ Compensation system.
“It is important to me to represent people who are most affected by an injury from simply doing their job,” said NC Workers’ Compensation Attorney Ryan Bliss. “Representing faceless companies with lots of red tape on the defense side was not the reason I became a lawyer.”
Bliss received his J.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Law, and his bachelor’s degree in English from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC, where he graduated magna cum laude.
“I’m proud to be part of a team with such a great reputation in helping injured NC workers,” Bliss said.
Bliss joins a team of 5 other NC Workers’ Compensation Attorneys who have a wealth of experience helping injured workers in North Carolina. Several have experience on both the defense and plaintiff’s side of Workers’ Compensation law. In addition, the Workers’ Compensation team includes a former Deputy Commissioner and a former Special Deputy Commissioner of the North Carolina Industrial Commission . The Workers’ Compensation department also has three attorneys who are North Carolina Board Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation law.
