Barna and her paralegal provide a client-centered, assertive approach which has yielded favorable results for the Firm’s clients.

Through meticulous preparation and litigation planning, many cases are won before they enter a courtroom. “Olivia’s expertise in representing employers, self-insureds, and carriers in workers’ compensation matters is unrivaled,” says Managing partner Greg Lois. “I’m proud of what Olivia has accomplished for her clients and we are excited to see her progress her career at LOIS.”

New York Workers’ Compensation Defense at Lois Law Firm

We represent insurance carriers, self-insured employers, third party claim administrators, and employers before the New York State Workers' Compensation Board. We handle cases from cradle-to-grave. We want to be by your side, moving cases aggressively to closure from the start of litigation all the way through to settlement.

We only assign one attorney and one paralegal to each case. This means that your team members always have one contact to go to for any questions. We do not have 'hearing attorney' or a 'negotiation attorney' or 'appeal department' or anything else! All of our attorneys handle all of those roles – meaning cases are not 'passed around' as they move through the litigation process. Your risk professional or adjuster always knows who is assigned – because the attorney does not change.
