Suzanne H. Jebaily
Suzanne H. Jebaily, the wife of senior partner Ronald J. Jebaily, started working at Jebaily Law Firm in 2002 to fill in as temporary paralegal. Suzanne had no plans on becoming a lawyer at that time. But the work, which involved a significant amount of writing to support the firm’s Workers’ Compensation cases, appealed to her.
Suzanne says a career highlight was her involvement in writing an amicus brief in the case of James v. Anne’s Inc.That case, which was decided by the Supreme Court of South Carolina in 2010, changed a policy of the state Workers’ Compensation Commission. The court ruled that the Commission has the authority to prorate an injured worker’s award over his or her lifetime in order to minimize an offset in social security disability benefits.
