Carl joined Constangy after spending many years as the Lead Administrative Law Judge for the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation's Metropolitan Atlanta office. As a Judge for eight years, he presided over thousands of trials and cases.

Previously, Carl was a trial attorney handling a variety of legal matters, including employment discrimination, medical malpractice and toxic torts. Specializing in complex cases, he has extensive experience as a certified mediator.

Carl believes preventative measures are as important as zealous representation in meeting the ultimate needs of his clients. In that regard, he actively counsels his clients on the proper steps to take in order to avoid litigation or to prepare for litigation before it arises. He has always believed in counseling and being available for consultation on employment matters and policies before litigation arises. He enjoys lecturing to a wide audience -- including attorneys, adjusters, insurer, employers and self-insurers -- on matters of effective trial preparation and presentation.
