Casey S. Francis, an attorney with the Deuterman Law Group in Greensboro, has been certified as a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, two prestigious associations of trial lawyers.
Membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is limited to attorneys who have obtained million dollar verdicts, awards or settlements for their clients. Fewer than 1 percent of U.S. attorneys are members.
To qualify for the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an attorney must have secured a verdict, award or settlement worth $2 million or more on behalf of a client.
Francis is a board certified specialist in workers’ compensation law at the Deuterman Law Group. Since joining the firm in 2011, she has been the lead attorney on cases involving Spanish-speaking clients, with a focus on representing undocumented workers in their claims.
“Casey works really hard on behalf of her clients, and our peers in the legal field consider her an expert in these types of cases. She has successfully argued cases before the N.C. Industrial Commission, the N.C. Court of Appeals and the N.C. Supreme Court,” said firm President Dan Deuterman. “It’s no surprise to me that she has earned these professional honors.”
Francis is a magna cum laude graduate of N.C. State with bachelor’s degrees in Spanish and International Politics with a minor in Middle Eastern Studies. She earned her juris doctor with honors in 2011 from the UNC School of Law.
Francis is a member of the N.C. Advocates for Justice Executive Committee for Workers’ Compensation and is serving a three-year term as a member of the N.C. Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Section Council. She is past vice president and founding member of the N.C. Association of Women Attorneys’ Piedmont Triad Chapter.
