Attorney Levin was first immersed in the field of workers' compensation assisting with public policy studies of various states' systems. He developed a deep respect and interest in the philosophy of workers' compensation from there, and decided to put his knowledge to good use, representing injured workers as they are most in need of representation.
Unlike many other workers' compensation specialists, Attorney Levin has had experience studying the workers' compensation systems of numerous states, allowing him the unique opportunity to understand how other states work. Though each states' laws may be similar, each has developed its own unique interpretations of the law. Understanding why other states have come to conclusions about their laws has given Attorney Levin the experience to find persuasive arguments with Massachusetts cases.
Attorney Levin has also handled cases on both sides, representing at different times employers and their insurers as well as injured workers. Representing and working with insurance carriers has given him a unique understanding of how they operate, knowledge of their strategies, and how best to obtain a favorable outcome from them.
As a solo practitioner, Attorney Levin is able to respond personally to his phone calls and speaks directly with his clients. This allows for callers to have their questions answered very quickly with expert advice. He also responds quickly and personally to emails.
Attorney Levin has been a specialist in the field of workers' compensation since 1994. He was first employed by Workers' Compensation Research Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. There he collected data from states around the country on how they implemented their own workers' comp laws and how they helped injured workers. After attending Northeastern University for a degree in political science, he furthered his studies by enrolling in New England School of Law while working for several Boston law firms.
Attorney Levin has experience working on both sides, and he understands how insurance companies function. This is imporant experience to have when trying to work out a settlementor when to determine whether a client is being treated fairly. Reaching the best outcome for the injured worker or disabled individual is his ultimate goal. He enjoys helping his clients make the best decisions for their situations. Attorney Levin's down-to-earth approach, thorough knowledge of workers' compensation laws, and decades of dedicated experience can put you at ease in the midst of personal recovery or lifestyle change due to debilitating conditions.
