Heidi Hosmer is an Atlanta native. She joined J. Franklin Burns, P.C. in 2019 after working for many years doing insurance defense work in Atlanta. Mrs. Hosmer was born and raised in Atlanta. She received a B.A. in Anthropology, with minors in French and Economics, in 1998 from Emory University and a Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2001.
Mrs. Hosmer has practiced law since 2001, focusing solely in workers’ compensation. She began her career as a staff attorney and certified mediator at the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation where she mediated hundreds of cases, assisted in writing opinions and performing legal research and worked with Administrative Law Judges in the Atlanta office of the State Board. She spent over 13 years practicing workers’ compensation defense law at 2 big Atlanta defense firms, so she knows how Employers and Insurance companies approach and handle workers’ compensation cases, and knows many of the attorneys and doctors involved in these claims.
Representing injured workers is a cause near and dear to Mrs. Hosmer’s heart, having had family members who have been through the Georgia Workers’ Compensation system personally after suffering on the job injuries.
