What do you like most about your job?

The best part about my job is helping to protect injured workers. It is important to fight for hard-working people and obtain protected benefits. When clients feel they are protected and have confidence in their attorney, there isn’t a better feeling. One of the most rewarding parts of the job is when injured workers receive proper medical care and compensation so they can rest easy.

What do you like Least?

Regrettably, although an injured worker is entitled to many protections under the law, insurance carriers try to cut every corner to not have to supply those benefits. Many injured hard-working men and women feel intimidated by these large insurance carriers and do not give push back. It is important to know that this is why we are here to help and secure protected benefits.

How would you describe your approach to a case?

It is important to start off with building a report with the client. Once a report is established, it is necessary to move the case along so that the claimant can get necessary medical care and compensation. It is important for my clients to know that I am always ready to push for what is necessary. My goal is to obtain the best results for my clients in the present moment and at the end of a case.
