"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." -- Partner Leslie G. Tilles
Our hearts go out to the people who have struggled with this terrible virus, and to those who have lost their lives or loved ones to it.

We are thrilled to announce that firm partner David Klein has been selected as a Top 10 Worker's Compensation Attorney by Attorney and Practice Magazine for 2020.
The owner of a small, struggling restaurant in the Bronx came to us for help when he was sued by his employees for more than $200,000.00. The problem was, these claims were largely false and unsubstantiated. Rather than face us at trial, the plaintiffs settled for only $25,000.00- just over 10 percent of the monies they originally sued for.
We recently represented the owner of a trucking/delivery company. A driver claimed to suffer serious injuries while employed by our client. However, our trucking/delivery client had a contract with a larger company, which made us no more than a contractor of the larger company where all workers were concerned.
At our firm, we believe that helping clients secure workers' compensation and Social Security benefits is only the beginning. Our attorneys and staff regularly advocate for workers' rights outside our office as well.
I'm proud and gratified to report that I have succeeded in negotiating over $3,300,000.00 in a personal injury/workers' compensation lawsuit and settlement for one of my clients.
