|Farewell To Willie Hall|
By Pauline Grant - April 25, 2005
Veteran workers' compensation claims professional Willie Hall, who was a resident of Los Angeles, died last Wednesday, April 20th, in her sleep.
She had been working up until day's end Tuesday, April 19th, as a contract examiner at FARA in Long Beach, and was in law school and planning to take the bar examination this coming July at this time of her untimely death.
Willie started her career in the late 1970s at R.L. Kautz in Century City where she was hired as a work comp examiner. She made her way up the professional ladder to become the Regional Claims Manager of Pacific National from 1991 to 1993, and then from 1993 to 1998 she was Regional Claims Manager of Cal Comp & Fire Insurance Company in their Woodland Hills office.
By late 1998, Ms. Hall had become Cal Comp's hearing representative and had started getting interested in going to law school and becoming a lawyer. Someone told me that Steve McNamara, a partner in the law firm of McDermott & McNamara, in Los Angeles made the comment once that when Willie graduated from law school he wanted her to give him a call to talk to him about coming to work as a work comp defense lawyer for his firm.
While making her way through law school since the year 2000, Willie worked as a temporary adjuster at A.I.G., Sedgwick CMS and finally at FARA in Long Beach.
Willie will be greatly missed by the work comp claims community for her knowledge, skill, and human presence in a world that appreciated her talent.
