Quality Legal Defense

High Quality Counsel & Defense

Our firm originated with the workers compensation defense practice and has blossomed since. We are distinctive in that handling of each case is deeply rooted in the goals and expectations of the client. Excellent handling requires an in-depth appreciation of the employee's relationship with the client. This means that it is not enough to settle cases quickly and for value, although these are key goals in case handling. We consider the entire employment relationship, including disability aspects, return to work, and its overall value.
