Both of our attorneys have a background that includes defending insurance companies. We have seen first hand what type of tactics they employ to avoid paying workers that rightfully deserve to be compensated. Our attorneys have since then spent their time standing up for workers to give them all the tools they need to take on employers and insurance companies that are not treating them fairly. Together our attorneys have more than 32 years of combined experience fighting as advocated of workers compensation. Our outstanding service has been recognized not just by our clients but even judges in the court rooms where we are on almost a daily basis. The high level of our legal capability has also gained us an AV rating as demonstration of our extensive proficiency in workers compensatinon related legal issues.
