Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Access your Workers Comp rights & benefits when you have been injured on the job.

Workers Compensation Attorneys

Personal Attention + Proven Results


Job injuries can threaten your family’s security. The stress and uncertainty can affect every aspect of your life. Though your employer or workers’ compensation insurance carrier is responsible to provide appropriate medical care and compensation for lost wages, many resist paying claims. In addition, recent changes to Florida Workers’ Compensation laws have put a great burden on injured workers. We make sure you have access to the rights and benefits you need.

When we meet with a client for the first time, it’s not uncommon for us to hand them a business card with our personal cell phone number on it. It can be shocking for a client to have that kind of access to us, but that’s the type of relationship they need. Accessibility is the best way to give them personal attention and straightforward solutions.

Client Testimonials

Working with Matt was very effortless. I was informed about everything every step of the way. Very professional and friendly. I was help beyond my expectations and would recommend Matt to anyone seeking an attorney. 


Hired him for a WC case. He was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. The case was resolved quickly and I was quite satisfied with the outcome.


Betty has been amazing through this whole process, and it’s been a long one. Any time I needed an appointment with my doctor they got it handled very quickly. Betty let me know what to expect during the deposition with the WC case manager. And her advice during the settlement process was invaluable. I truly appreciate the work she did for me.


Betty is fantastic. She is always there to answer all your questions. And if there is any issues she handles them quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend Betty for any workers’ compensation case.


Sarah handled my workers’ comp case and then my disability case. Both were very successful thanks to her and her skills. Everyone should have someone like Sarah in their corner.


Terri is a great attorney! From the first time I talked to her I felt like a long time friend. She and her staff were always prompt to get any questions I had answered. They worked hard, with MY best interest at heart.


I recently had the pleasure of working with Mr Casey Carlson on a workers’ compensation case. He was very professional and knowledgeable. My case settled very quickly and I would highly recommend this firm to any one with legal needs. This firm has also been helpful with another case of mine and is currently helping other family members. Again I would highly recommend them and my thanks goes out to everyone there.


I hired Casey Carlson to handle a Workers Comp case and it was handled in a timely matter. When it came time to settle he stayed in touch and gave me the options I was available to. I did get what I was hoping for.


I tried to navigate the Workers’ Compensation system by myself and after doing research chose Casey Carlson to help me. He made me feel comfortable and guided me through the law but did so at a level that I understood. If you need someone who is willing to patiently help you through the Workers Comp maze Casey is your Lawyer and Friend!
