Biographical Notes:
design element
Hon. Patricia Killingsworth served as a judge at the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation from 1987-1996. During her tenure as Chief Judge and Trial Division Director she initiated the alternative dispute resolution program at the Board, where she served as a mediator in addition to her judicial and administrative duties. In addition to her initial ADR training in 1993 with Dispute Management of Orlando, she received advanced mediation training at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law in 1999, and, most recently, master mediation training with the American Institute of Mediation (August 2010).

Judge Killingsworth has been in private mediation practice for over 15 years with BAY and has expanded her practice to include ADA and employment disputes in addition to workers compensation and personal injury litigation, with particular emphasis on catastrophic injury claims. She has now mediated well over 2500 cases, and maintains a resolution rate of better than 90%.

Judge Killingsworth has been active in the ADR community in Georgia throughout her career, and has written numerous articles and spoken at many seminars throughout the State regarding both workers' compensation and alternative dispute resolution issues. She continues to teach workers' compensation law at Georgia State University College of Law, where she has been an adjunct professor since 1990.
