CHARLOTTE — Charlotte attorney Trey Collier was recently certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a specialist in workers’ compensation. He is one of 163 lawyers statewide to achieve the specialist certification.

The State Bar certifies lawyers as specialists in designated practice areas.

The program also gives lawyers a credible way of making their expertise known to the public and other lawyers.

To be certified as a specialist in a practice area, a lawyer must have been in practice for at least five years, devote a significant part of his practice to the specialty area, attend continuing legal education seminars in the specialty, be favorablly evaluated by other lawyers and judges, and pass a written examination in the specialty area.

Collier, founder of Collier Law, concentrates his legal practice in the area of workers’ compensation.

A graduate of Woodberry Forest School, he earned his bachelor of arts with a double major in history and political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He graduated with honors from the University of Campbell School of Law. Collier has been admitted to the North Carolina Bar and practice before the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

A native of Salisbury, Collier has appeared before the deputy commissioners of the N.C. Industrial Commission, the Full Commission, the N.C. Court of Appeals and the state District and Superior courts. He has spoken on a wide array of topics related to workers’ compensation law in North Carolina.
