We founded LOIS to be the cutting edge of workers’ compensation law. Our lawyers have tried some of the most important worker’s compensation matters for the largest companies in the world. Our clients rely on us to aggressively defend them from baseless, often predatory lawsuits filed by current and former employees.
With offices in New York and New Jersey, Lois Law Firm is the preeminent workers’ compensation defense firm. Founded by experienced trial lawyers devoted to the diligent and aggressive defense of high exposure claims, the firm’s partners are nationally recognized advocates who have consistently achieved success in defending employers in thousands of workers compensation trials and hearings.
Staying on the cutting edge requires focus and training. The Firm has a robust training program, led by our Director of Training and Development, where we celebrate wins during in-house training events (always held on the Third Friday of the month), bring in special presenters provide CLE to the Firm’s attorneys, where all attorneys and staff participates in our Mock Trial program, and attorneys share “best practices” for defending claims.
Our Learning Culture Supports our Pursuit of Mastery.
Our mission is to defend employers. We continually push the state-of-the-art on Best Practices in our practice area. Our attorneys are identified as the very best at what we do because we focus on a Firm-wide, highly developed training program.
Join the team focused on mastery. LOIS is a learning organization and we devote significant resources, out of a proportion to a Firm of of our size, to the training and development of our teams. Our training program is the best of its kind and continues throughout the year and involves every single attorney, paralegal, and staff member at the Firm.
We Begin on Day One.
Our training program for all new employees begins on the first day. We welcome you to the team by closing the office and spending your first hour on breakfast and introductions to the entire office (50+ people) including the managing partner and leadership team.
Your first week at the Firm is spent in a rigorous training program, led by our Director of Training and Development. This program introduces the new team member to our standards, technology, and processes in a systemic and measured way.
New associates are not assigned to a team and are instead provided one-on-one training led by a Firm partner and daily seminars led by partner attorneys for the first 30 days. During this period the new attorney is immersed in subject-matter work and has an opportunity to ease into life at the Firm.
Our Learning Culture Extends Beyond the Initial Training Period.
Firm Wide Training Events
On the third Friday of every month, LOIS holds “on campus” training events for all partners, attorneys, paralegals, and staff. These events often include presentations from outside professionals, including recent Firm-wide seminars led by a neurosurgeon on cross-examination, an investigation firm on new tools in social media investigations, a pain management doctor on effective weaning programs, and experts on appellate brief-writing.
Our Focus on Continuing Legal Education
We go above-and-beyond to ensure that every attorney has ample opportunity to obtain Continuing Legal Education credits that are practice-specific. During our live Third Friday’s programs (our monthly on-campus training day) attorneys earn live CLE credits for attending. We have also partnered with WestLegal Education Center to make available hundred of online, practice-specific training courses so that attorneys can stay up-to-date on legal topics. The Firm also provides a CLE-tracking system for attorneys and assists attorneys in staying compliant.
