At LOIS, Tashia leads the New York Construction Practice, which exclusively handles workers’ compensation claims arising out of construction accidents. Tashia represents employers, self-ensured companies, insurance carriers and third party administrators before the workers’ compensation courts in New York. Her expertise lies in complex coverage issues, wrap-ups, and claims arising out of catastrophic injuries. As part of her practice, Tashia frequently visits accident sites and provides on-site training to employers regarding workers’ compensation claims, as well as to develop defense strategies. Tashia is the author of the "Defending Construction Claims" Handbook (more on the handbook below).
Tashia regularly counsels clients on the importance of coordinating defense of workers’ compensation and general liability claims, and has a track record of favorable outcomes as a result of such coordination. In concert with Lois Law Firm’s recommended protocol for coordinating workers’ compensation and general liability defense, Tashia led a discussion of the protocol at the 2019 Annual Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Conference to educate her peers on the importance of joint defense.

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.
