We know that workers’ compensation injuries are the last thing employers want to deal with because work injuries cost time and money and disrupt the work environment in many negative ways. This is where we step in. We provide tenacious and cost-effective legal counsel to employers with a focus on closing claims fast with minimal impact on your business operations and bottom-line. The remarkable value of our service is a function of both our legal results and the reasonable costs to our clients. We carefully scrutinize our billings for fairness and accuracy to keep your allocated costs to a minimum. Getting workers’ compensation claims resolved quickly and workers back to work means you can get back to doing what you do best–running your business.
Efficient. Effective. Excellent.

Our clientele varies greatly from small businesses to multi-national corporations. We provide statewide service representing clients at all Workers’ Compensation Appeal Boards. What remains constant is our policy to treat each file with the care and attention it deserves and requires while developing strong personal ties with our clients. In keeping with this philosophy, we set high standards in promptly addressing all questions and issues that our clients have, and we continually update our clients with meaningful case status reports. We offer periodic file reviews at clients’ office and convenience.
How did we get here?
Our firm started in 1995 when Otto Cipolla left his previous firm. His goal was to create a small group of excellent attorneys so he could provide exceptional client service—something he felt was lacking at the big firms. What started as a 4-person team has expanded to over 25 attorneys in 6 locations.
