Workers’ Compensation

Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Lissa F. Klein is a Partner in Hall Booth Smith’s Atlanta office. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History in 2004.  She received her Juris Doctorate degree from South Texas College of Law in 2007.

Ms. Klein focuses her practice on the defense of employers, insurers, and self-insurers throughout the state of Georgia, including many of Georgia’s largest employers. She has extensive experience representing her clients at all administrative and state appellate levels, including obtaining successful results for clients before the Trial and Appellate Divisions of the State Board of Workers’ Compensation.

Ms. Klein assists her clients in developing and implementing risk management procedures which reduce exposure before on-the-job accidents have a chance to take place. She also frequently presents educational seminars where she advises on the latest developments in workers’ compensation law.
