Having worked with this law firm since a brutal compensation accident in 2007 here's what I can say. Throughout my entire ordeal these individuals, everyone I encountered were professional, knowledgeable and most importantly compassionate. They continually advocated for my interests and we're phenomenal in helping me navigate the horrific worker's compensation laws of New York. My employer and insurance company lied right from the beginning. Everyone was superior in their support, and were always available to answer any questions, or just to listen and allow me to express my frustration. They were proactive and kept ahead of my insurance company, even scheduled hearings to advance my case when the insurance company wasn't paying. Tim, my attorney from Syracuse became my friend. He's a no holds barred tell it like it is in plain language kinda guy. He was realistic and definitely knows his way around the nightmare system of the NYS workers compensation system. They were able to negotiate a settlement for my case and for that I am thankful. Without hesitation when I asked that they go back to the table to negotiate a higher settlement, enough to cover their nominal fees they did and we're successful. In the end I am compensated fairly in my opinion, and now have the ability to navigate and manage my own health care without any insurance company telling me or my physicians what to do. I'm thankful for all the professional people who took the time to get my case settled. Without hesitation I would recommend this law firm.
