Valerie Johnson and Leto Copeley attended the annual convention of the Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group (WILG), where their former law partner Hank Patterson was presented with the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award. Hank was recognized for his tireless efforts to make the American workplace safer and to get injured workers the benefits that enable them to keep paying their families’ bills while they are healing from their injuries. The conference featured workshops on medical treatment for workplace injuries, the cost of health care, and tactics for enforcing workplace safety.
At the convention, Valerie was appointed Continuing Legal Education Co-chair. Valerie will help to plan the educational offerings for the lawyers attending the 2014 convention.
