I truly appreciate your time, effort, understanding, work ethic, and most of all compassion. There have been many times where I was extremely frustrated with Workers' Comp and the games they play. The staff always got right on it and resolved the situation quickly for me. I am grateful this firm is so well in sync with each other!

Closed my case quickly and doubled the settlement the insurance company first offered me. The staff was professional and I never had an issue getting someone on the phone.

From injured worker to your advocate!

How a work injury inspired me to get you the benefits you need.

My own work injury

Before becoming a New York Workers' Compensation lawyer, I suffered a hand injury at my brewery job and was unable to continue working.

A helping hand

A Workers' Compensation lawyer offered me a job during that difficult time so I could make ends meet.

Inspiration strikes!

This generous act inspired me to pursue a career in law so I could help others in similar situations.

Delivering for you

Today I run my own practice, doing everything in my power to get you—the injured worker—the treatment and benefits that you need during your own difficult time!

Get peace of mind and
the benefits you deserve

Don’t leave your Workers' Comp claim to chance!

Below are just a few of the things my team and I do to help you feel confident and supported as we work to get you the the treatment and benefits you need:


Leave The Work To Us

My team and I will not only explain every step of the process to you, but also handle everything needed to file your claim from start to finish.

This includes filling out all the forms, getting evidence, talking to the insurance company, and speaking at hearings.

You can count on us to take care of everything.


Maximize your benefits

Most of our clients end up getting much more in benefits than they would if they tried to handle things on their own. Sometimes as much as 2x-5x more.

How? By making sure their benefits are calculated correctly and doing everything I can to get them extra money, including fighting with the insurance company.


Get the treatment you need

There are many things that can stand in the way of getting the medical treatment you need, like picking the wrong doctor, sharing too much information with the insurance company, and missing your IME appointments.

I'll advise you throughout the process to make sure your treatment gets approved.


Stay Updated Every Step of The Way

I am available to answer your questions, return your calls, and give you honest answers.

One of the top complaints I hear from injured workers who have worked with other attorneys is that they were not responsive.

You can trust me to communicate with you clearly and make sure you always feel informed on your case.


Be treated with fairness and respect

As your lawyer, I'll be committed to treating you with fairness and respect, and I'll also ensure that the insurance company, doctors, and your employer do the same.

You can count on me to be an experienced advocate on your side, protecting your rights and making sure you get treated fairly by everyone involved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some of the most common questions I get asked

Is my employer going to fire me for filing a workers' comp claim?

You can’t be fired for filing or participating in a Workers' Comp claim. New York Workers' Compensation law protects you against discrimination

How long does it take to get my benefits?

Generally, once you report your injury to your employer and file a Workers' Compensation claim, your employer's insurance company has 18 days to either accept or deny your claim.

If your claim is accepted, you may begin receiving benefits shortly after. However, if your claim is denied it could take months, but usually no longer than a year.

Overall, the length of time it takes to receive benefits in New York can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case, so call us at 212-406-8989 to get a better idea of how long it will take for you to start receiving benefits.

I work off the books and get paid cash, am I entitled to workers' compensation?

Yes. Even if you are paid in cash and off the books, you are entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits if you are injured on the job.

I’m an undocumented immigrant, am I entitled to workers' compensation?

Yes. Undocumented immigrants are just as eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits and personal injury compensation as legal residents and U.S. citizens.

Can I sue my employer?

In New York you cannot sue your employer for work-related accidents, just as you're protected by Workers' Comp insurance, so are they.

The trade-off for not being able to sue is you get quicker and easier access to benefits regardless of fault.

Can I use my private health insurance instead of filing a workers' comp claim?

No, because for your private insurance to cover a work-related injury you would have to lie to your doctor about how the injury was sustained. This can cause serious issues for you if the lie is discovered. You should always use workers' comp for work-related injuries.

This can be considered fraud if the lie is discovered, so you should always use Workers' Comp for work-related injuries.

Do I get to choose my own doctor?

In New York you get to pick your own doctor. As long as your doctor accepts Workers' Compensation and is coded by the board, you can treat with them.
