Workers' Compensation Law

If you have suffered a workplace injury, you may be entitled to benefits within the Workers' Compensation system. Only an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney can properly advise you of your rights following your on-the-job accident.

Keep in mind that it’s illegal for your employer to punish or fire you for being injured at work or for filing a Workers’ Compensation claim. If you think your job may be at risk for filing an injury claim, contact an attorney. Also, keep in mind that there are deadlines involved when filing a claim, so it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney to ensure your rights are protected.

In addition to being highly experienced in Workers' Compensation law, our attorneys keep abreast of the ever-changing laws impacting employees, and are on the legislative frontlines, helping to ensure that the rights of the state's injured workers are protected.

Activism is Key

Language Is Not a Barrier

Client Testimonials

"Twice I have turned to attorney Richard Felton when choosing an advocate, and twice I have been rewarded for making the right choice.

Mr. Felton is a true professional, a cogent advisor who has a facile understanding of the law from the worker's point of view and who is then able to interpret even the most complex legal perspectives clearly and patiently for his clients."

I was recommended to Attorney Adam Dombchik by other lawyers who described him as an expert in the field of Workers' Compensation. They were right. He handled my case in a very efficient, professional way. He did a great job, and I'm very happy with the outcome. I would recommend Adam to anyone who wants the best.
Robert LaBau
I am very grateful to Amy Leung for all of her work on behalf of my case. It has been a long, difficult struggle; Amy’s support and expertise have helped me so much. I don’t think I would have made it without Amy and her team.
Dr. Carol Otis
Attorney Joanna Sacavitch was very responsive to my needs, which put me at ease. My life became better the day I walked into her office.
Police Officer Tim Magdaleno
From the moment I spoke with Attorney Erika Vargas, and after a deep breath and a huge sigh, a feeling of confidence and calm came over me regarding my legal representation. She clearly understands my Workers’ Compensation injuries and explains my options in a way that makes me confident that I am being represented by one of the best.
