Our Practice

We provide knowledgeable and strong counsel to people with unresolved legal issues involving:

  • Workers' compensation claims  — We work with injured workers at all stages of the benefits claims process, preparing and filing your initial application, and representing you in hearings or proceedings before administrative agencies. We handle all types of on the job accidents. Call us and tell us what happened.
  • Social Security benefits  — If you cannot work for a year or more because of an accident or illness, we will help you determine whether you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI and/or SSI) benefits
  • Seriously Injured Workers may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits at the same time and in addition to State workers' compensation benefits. If you have an open workers' compensation claim and have been unable to work for a year or more, give us a call for more information about possible SSDI or SSI benefits for you and your family. Do not delay filing for SSA benefits until the end of your workers compensation case!

We handle all Workers' Compensation and Social Security claims on a contingency basis. We never send you a legal bill. You pay fees only after you win in an amount approved in advance by a judge.
