Paul has been practicing personal injury and worker’s compensation law in Macon, Georgia for the last thirty-two years, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Although he still has an active practice, since 2010 he has focused on assisting parties in resolving disputes through the mediation process. Paul has extensive training and experience as a mediator having conducted over twelve-hundred mediations throughout the State of Georgia over the last nine years. He is registered as a mediator and arbitrator with the Georgia Supreme Court’s Commission on Dispute Resolution, as well as with the Macon and Houston Judicial Circuit’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Program.
