New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Defense

We represent insurance carriers, self-insured employers, third party claim administrators, and employers before the New Jersey’s Division of Workers’ Compensation. Our founding partner, Gregory Lois, is co-author of the LexisNexis “Practice Guide to Workers’ Compensation in New Jersey” (2017, ISBN:9781632838735) and served as Law Clerk to Hon. Joan Mott, Administrative Supervisor of Workers Compensation.

Along with partner Joe Jones and a dedicated team of experienced attorneys and paraprofessionals, we handle New Jersey 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.

Our approach in New Jersey.

All new files are sent to the supervising partner, Greg Lois.

Within seven (7) days of referral, we provide your adjuster with a comprehensive legal action plan and budget, setting out the likely exposure, plan of action to get the case to close, analysis of any potential legal defenses, and identify the handling/trial attorney and paralegal assigned to the case. We provide you with any court- or venue- specific information, such as who the judge is, evaluation of the treating providers, best IME doctor to use, etc.

Greg Lois then assigns the matter to a handling attorney, who each handles a specific venue (or venues). The same attorney and paralegal are assigned to a case from beginning to end.

Who we are.

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 of my attorneys focus their practice on workers’ compensation.

We assign attorneys to specific courts and not to clients or matters. This way, your attorney is an expert on his/her specific court and judge. We have tried dozens of cases to conclusion this year in each of the courts we go to. We are aggressive in pursuing appeals.
