Early in his legal career, Mr. Bliss worked as an insurance defense attorney at a prominent law firm in Raleigh.

A native of Syracuse, New York, Mr. Bliss graduated from North Carolina State University magna cum laude in Raleigh in 2005, and he obtained his Juris Doctor from The University of North Carolina School of Law in Chapel Hill in 2008. He has published an article in Trial Briefs Magazine on workers' compensation law as it relates to undocumented workers, and he has conducted lectures and seminars across his region on a variety of legal topics.

Active in his legal community, Mr. Bliss is a member of the North Carolina State Bar and the Durham County Bar Association, and he served as workers’ comp communications chair for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice in 2018.
