Shawn M. Wollam is one of central Ohio’s most well-respected and competent workers’ compensation trial attorneys, committed to fighting on behalf of injured workers.
He began his legal career as an Assistant Attorney General practicing in the workers’ compensation section of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. He handled litigation at all state court levels, including county common pleas courts, the Tenth District Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Ohio. He represented large state agencies at all levels, handling both administrative hearings and court appeals, conducting jury trials, negotiating settlements and managing a large case load.
Since 2007, Shawn has practiced as a workers’ compensation attorney, diligently representing injured workers in hearings before the Industrial Commission of Ohio and in court appeals at the common pleas and appellate levels. He has tried numerous cases to successful jury verdicts. His tenacity and work ethic have made him a well-known name in courthouses across Ohio.
Shawn also represents disabled individuals in Social Security disability claims, handling hearings before Administrative Law Judges in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. By applying the skills he learned in workers’ compensation trials, he has persuasively presented cases for disability and effectively cross-examined medical and vocational experts who testify at hearings.
Shawn earned a B.A. in political science from Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio in 2001. He received his Juris Doctorate degree from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law in 2004. He is a member of the Ohio Association for Justice and the Ohio State Bar Association.
