Board Certified Attorney Bios

We’ve talked in past blogs about what it means to be a Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist, and if you’ve read those posts, you know it’s no small feat. We take great pride in our attorneys who have achieved Board Certification, and so we thought we’d introduce the 8 Board Certified attorneys we have here at Oxner + Permar: 


Todd Oxner- Todd is one of the founders and managing partners of Oxner + Permar. On top of being board certified, he is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He is most proud of being able to help injured workers from step one all the way through their workers’ comp claims.


Chip Permar- Another one of the founders and managing partners of Oxner + Permar, Chip is a native of Greensboro. He also is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates forum. Chip is an alumni of NC State university where he double majored in Political Science and History.


Joel Davis- In addition to being Board Certified, Joel is AV rated — the highest peer reviewed rating a lawyer can receive based on their ethical standards and legal ability. He also spends his time participating in food drives, volunteering for Urban Ministries, and working on projects with the Knights of Columbus.


Justin Wraight- Originally from New York, Justin graduated from Elmira College with a degree in Mathematics. Having spent considerable time volunteering in a Legal Aide’s office, he saw first-hand a lot of the struggles his clients went through. This experience inspired his decision to go into workers’ compensation law.


John Landry Jr.- John brings outstanding experience with general law practice to the Oxner + Permar team. Previously, he defended insurance companies and employers, so he knows what it’s like to work for “the other side.”


Kristin Henrikson- Kristin is licensed in both North and South Carolina, and as such has represented clients in both states. Wanting to represent the interests of injured workers, she joined the Oxner + Permar team in 2009.


Megan Callahan- Megan has always been driven by her desire to help others. Her undergraduate degree from NC State is in Sociology, which she said has allowed her to connect with and understand others.


Oxner + Permar has more Board Certified members than any other firm in the state. To find out more about our team, feel free to contact us or visit our website.
