Dallas D. Jones

 	Dallas D. Jones

Mr. Jones is the firm’s former Managing Partner and past Chair of the Workers' Compensation Practice Group. The focus of his practice is identifying innovative ways to enable employers to navigate the overlap of workers’ compensation claims and the myriad of employment laws that can create complications in the claims process. He has authored numerous articles in an effort to educate employers and claims handlers on how to limit the costs associated with employers’ workers’ compensation programs. Mr. Jones is a frequently-invited speaker, locally and nationally, regarding all aspects of workers’ compensation and the overlap of related employment laws.

Mr. Jones was raised in the rural Sandhills of Nebraska, where he worked with his father, a small-town carpenter. Through that experience, he gained an early appreciation of the impact that the workers’ compensation system has on Nebraska’s employers and employees. In an effort to improve and modernize the system so that Nebraska employers remain competitive and Nebraska employees are fairly compensated, he devotes substantial time working with other leaders in the workers’ compensation system to bring about Legislative and Court Rule changes.
