Jack Bailey, Jr. one of six Louisiana attorneys named to College of Workers Compensation Lawyers

The College of Workers Compensation Lawyers has inducted Jack Bailey, Jr., as one of only six Louisiana attorneys named to the fellowship.

Jack Bailey, Jr., exclusively represents north Louisiana and Shreveport/Bossier City with this recognition.

The College of Workers Compensation Lawyers was established to honor those attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their practice in the field of workers compensation. Members are nominated for the outstanding traits they have developed in their practice of 20 years or longer; representing plaintiffs, defendants, serving as judges or acting for the benefit of all in education, overseeing agencies and developing legislation.

The membership voted the inductees on their highest professional qualifications and ethical standards, character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership. They have a commitment to fostering and furthering the objectives of the College and have shown considerable evidence of scholarship, teaching, lecturing, and/or distinguished published writings on Workers Compensation or related fields of law.

“This is an honor to be nationally recognized for my 40-year fight for injured workers in the courts and legislature. Most lawyers will not elect to help an injured worker, and it is indeed these injured workers who deserve the best possible representation by a top trial lawyer. This type of honor helps to recognize how much I care about justice for the workers of my community,” said Jack Bailey, Jr.

• A Fellow stands out to newer attorneys as a model of professionalism in department and advocacy
