My father, Lawrence Klein, was a pioneer in the field of workers' compensation. I began my apprenticeship at the age of fifteen, working summers in his growing law practice. For more than thirty years, I've carried on my father's tradition of bare knuckle street fighting for justice for New York's working men and women. I have taught pro bono workshops for many local unions and Teamsters, including asbestos workers, hazardous waste carters, drivers of baked goods and dairy products, EMS paramedics, butchers and meat-wrappers, the Municipal Police Benevolent Association, and the Mason Tenders Training Fund, SEIU 1199 and Locals 108 and 79, DC 9, Painters and Allied Trades. I have also conducted free legal workshops for La Colmena - Staten Island, El Centro Del Inmigrante, The National Day Laborers Network, The Workers' Justice Project, the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, the New York City & Vicinity Carpenters Latino Association, the Chinese Community Center in Manhattan, the Flushing Workers Center and Chinese Staff & Workers Association, Obreros Unidos De Yonkers Y Caridades Catolicas, The Latin American Workers Project, Parents in Action and the Workers Education Resource Center acting in collaboration with the New York City Comptroller's Bureau of Labor Law, and the Mexican Consulate. I have taught at Mount Sinai Hospital, Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx, and New York - Presbyterian Hospital.

My father would often say that family is the most important thing in life. In addition, he taught me to regard all the people in my life as family: my friends, co-workers, employees, and in particular, my clients. And although he was a highly regarded figure in the world of workers' compensation, and maintained a thriving practice, he was always true to his word, never giving less than the best of his time and attention.

Of all the satisfactions practicing workers' compensation and social security disability laws, the greatest by far is when a client takes the trouble to give me a special thank-you. A birthday card, a home-made gift at Christmas-it might just be a small note of gratitude, but at those times I am reminded why, since 1991, I come to work each morning.

I was born near Nanjing, China, in a steel industry town, so I know first-hand that the dreams and aspirations, frustrations and successes of the working man and woman are the same all over the world. After studying Economic Statistics at the Shanghai University of Finance & Economics I became intrigued by the American judicial system. After completing law school in China, I attained a Masters of Law at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Steven Davis : I concentrate on fighting for the rights of injured men and women with Workers' Compensation cases, and on Social Security Disability cases, as well. After establishing the law firm of Davis & Shatkin, I moved on to become Partner at the widely-known Jacoby & Meyers, where for twenty-five years I held numerous high-level management and litigation positions in both the Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury departments-as the Negotiation Attorney in the New York Personal Injury Unit, I negotiated many millions of dollars for our clients.

Alan Quig
NYS Licensed Workers' Compensation Representative

Alan is a passionate and zealous advocate for our clients, who has many years of experience appearing before judges at hearings. We are especially lucky to have Alan representing our clients at hearings, because he began his career working for the Special Funds Conservation Committee, and for the Hartford Insurance Company. This means that he knows well how insurance company lawyers think, so he can anticipate their strategy.
