Meet Attorney Karen J. Robertson

Workers’ Compensation Attorney in Macon GA

Georgia attorney Karen Robertson devotes all of her practice to representing injured workers. At the McArthur Law Firm, Karen is the firm’s principle workers’ compensation attorney in Macon GA. Karen ensures injured workers receive the full amount of benefits to which they are entitled under workers’ comp law. Additionally, Karen reviews potential clients’ situations to see if they have a third party workers’ compensation claim. A third party personal injury claim offers additional monetary recovery beyond regular workers’ comp benefits. There is no charge to meet with Karen for her to review your claim. Additionally, there is no obligation to hire the workplace injury lawyers at the McArthur Law Firm after this consultation.

Karen is a graduate of Mercer Law School, where she served on both the Moot Court Board as well as the Student Bar Association. Karen went to work defending insurance companies for the better part of four years before switching gears and joining the McArthur Law Firm. As a former workers’ comp defense attorney, Karen is then uniquely able to foresee the strategy of the other side and prepare her clients’ workers’ comp cases accordingly.

Though she now calls Georgia her home, Karen is a proud graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a North Carolina native. She is a member of the Macon Bar Association, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, and a member of the Order of Barristers. In 2014, Karen was selected as one of the Top 40 Lawyers under the age of 40 in the state of Georgia.
