Michelle M. Teed
The key to building a strong workers’ compensation defense is to quickly learn an industry and identifying opportunities to ask thoughtful questions that will move a case forward. I work with clients to discern the appropriateness of treatment to ensure providers are acting in accordance with an employer’s best interests and the applicable workers’ compensation statutes.
