WILG describes its Top Injured Workers’ Attorney program as “an invitation-only, professional recognition program comprised of America’s leading attorneys representing injured workers.”
Founded in Columbia in 1956 by Isadore Lourie, the firm stands ready to help people who have been injured – people who need a lawyer who won’t back down, and is prepared to fight for them in court.
Growing up in Georgetown, S.C., Tish Dozier Alleyne saw family members work hard in the mills and factories of the Lowcountry town. She also saw how companies at times failed to return that loyalty when workers were injured. What she saw motivates her in her work. She is the first in her family to graduate from college, and she hasn’t forgotten where she comes from. For her, practicing law is more than a job. It’s a form of public service.
In addition to her recognition by WILG, Tish is also an elected member of the executive board of Injured Workers’ Advocates, a nonprofit association with similar goals of protecting and advancing workers’ compensation law on the state level in her home state of South Carolina.
“I deeply appreciate this recognition,” she said. “What we do in the area of workers’ compensation is something that matters deeply to real people and their families, and we will not let them down.”
