How Unions Can Benefit From Our Services

If you are a union member, a union representative may get involved after a workplace injury. The representative may facilitate the claims process for you, however, he or she is no substitute for legal representation.

We Are Poised For Action

Our law firm knows how to work with unions to obtain the best results for injured union members. If a dispute arises, a union is generally bound by its grievance procedures. In contrast, our law firm is poised for action. We can negotiate a favorable settlement on your behalf or prepare for litigation before the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board.

We Are Tough Negotiators

Don’t underestimate the persuasive impact of having legal representation. An attorney’s presence may prod your employer into making a more reasonable settlement offer. If negotiations are unsuccessful, we bring 30 years of litigation experience before the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board to your case.
