Greensboro attorney S. Camille Payton of Ward Black Law was recently inducted as a Fellow of the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers. This national organization honors those attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the field of workers’ compensation. Nominees are selected based on the outstanding traits they have exemplified in their practice of twenty years or more. The Fellowship in the College recognizes the attorney’s continued commitment to maintain the “highest standards of professional conduct and scholarly pursuits; absolute integrity with clients, opponents, colleagues and the bench; to excellence in the presentation of law and fact; and to a demeanor which manifests respect for the legal process and its participants.”
“It is an incredible honor to be recognized by this esteemed organization,” said Payton, who has been practicing law since 1993. “I not only believe in being the strongest advocate for our clients but also representing our industry with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism.”
Payton currently serves as the Board Chair of Legal Aid of North Carolina and has previously chaired the North Carolina Bar Association’s Workers’ Compensation section with more than 500 attorney members from across the state. She also served as an editor for the North Carolina Workers Compensation Forms Manual, a publication which is widely used by Workers’ Compensation attorneys in every county in North Carolina. A native of Kinston, North Carolina, she graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and the University of Texas School of Law before practicing law in Greensboro. Payton, a shareholder at Ward Black Law, focuses her practice on workers who have been injured on the job.
