We are proud to announce that Nicholas “Niko” Pothitakis was elected president of the Iowa Association of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers (IAWC) at their annual meeting on October 22, 2014. He follows in the footsteps of the previous IAWC president Jim Peters of Cedar Rapids. The IAWC is a group of Iowa attorneys who are actively engaged in workers’ compensation law on behalf of injured workers, employers, and insurance carriers. As stated on their website, it is their objective “to promote the administration of justice, provide continuing legal education in the area of workers' compensation law, and enhance the effectiveness of the workers' compensation laws and their administration.”
Niko has been a member of the IAWC since 2005 and has previously served as the vice president of the organization. As president, it will be his duty to preside at all meetings of the IAWC and its Board of Governors. He will also be responsible for directing the affairs of the Association with the advice and consent of the Board of Governors. Mr. Pothitakis feels it is a great honor to serve in this organization with a group of such highly distinguished lawyers.
