Insurance companies want to limit or deny benefits, especially in cases in which damages are significant. We know the tactics insurance companies use, and we know how to neutralize those tactics to fight for the compensation you deserve.

We understand the frustration and confusion that comes when an insurance company denies your claim. Fortunately, I know how insurance companies work—I used to represent them. Now I use that knowledge and experience to represent injured workers. My background has made me a more effective advocate for injured workers because I know the tactics insurance companies use to deny and reduce worker’s compensation benefits.
When you choose me to represent you, you are choosing any attorney who is intimately familiar with the insurance company’s playbook. I will use this knowledge to your benefit. Oftentimes, we are able to gather the evidence necessary to convince the insurance company to offer a fair settlement of your claim without the necessity of a hearing. However, if the insurance company is unwilling to offer a reasonable settlement, we will take your case to a worker’s compensation judge to fight for the full compensation you deserve.
If you’ve been injured on the job, or if your claim has been denied, I invite you to call us to schedule a free consultation.
