You don’t need a Firm, you need an attorney. That relationship is powerful when it is working well. And when it isn’t – when your attorney is not communicating with you, not asking the right questions, or not being aggressive enough – the relationship has failed. You deserve a partner, not a vendor.
We handle all of our workers’ compensation defense 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. The attorney/paralegal assignments are made based on the court the case will be listed in.
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 adjuster always knows who is assigned – because the attorney does not change.
All of our attorneys are 100% dedicated to defending worker’s compensation claims. While we do some associated general litigation (usually subrogation related to the workers’ compensation claims we handle) all LOIS attorneys focus their practice on workers’ compensation defense.
We currently handle all of the hearing points from Albany on south (“downstate”). We are in every city court every day. We handle the entire state of New Jersey.
We are part of a community of learners. We are proud of the Firm’s commitment to training the next generation of leaders in workers’ compensation. Every month, the Firm provides in-person and online training to a community of hundreds of risk professionals, attorneys, and medical care providers on the substance and theory of workers’ compensation law in New York and New Jersey.
Each month, we offer:
webinars, providing timely guidance on handling workers’ compensation claims in New York and New Jersey.
audio podcasts, including our “Third Friday’s” series, offering in depth discussion between attorneys on topics like opiates, OCIPS, and claims handling.
our newsletter on emerging case law in New Jersey, New York, and Longshore cases.
our plain English handbooks, designed for adjusters and risk professionals needing a handy reference to workers’ compensation law in their states.
We are 100% dedicated to defending worker’s compensation claims. Our fanatical attention to our client’s cases and our credibility that comes from experience are our defining characteristics. We demonstrate the credibility by the client training we do. We are known for our books, articles, and presentations. That extends into our Firm where we develop and foster an atmosphere of career-long learning and training.
We are leaders in the field of workers’ compensation defense. In New York our team handles cases in every city court and every hearing point south of Albany. Our attorneys defend clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens (Jamaica), Staten Island, White Plains, and all Long Island Courts. We also defend cases in Albany (Menands), Hudson, New Windsor (Newburgh), and Poughkeepsie. Our 2017 handbook (available here) is the “go-to” guide to defending workers’ compensation claims in New York.
In New Jersey our highly-experienced team handles the entire State, with regular hearing lists in every workers’ compensation court. From Jersey City to Atlantic City, LOIS attorneys are known for their passionate defense, dedication to their clients, and knowledge of the law. Founding Partner Greg Lois is the co-author of the LexisNexis New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Practice Guide (2016).
