New York State Bar Association Workers' Comp Lawyer SeminarSunday, November 19, 2006
Not another workers’ compensation attorney seminar? That’s what my understanding partners are asking! Yes – but when the prestigious New York State Bar Association asks you to participate in one of their excellent and well attended continuing legal education courses, it really is an honor one cannot refuse.
This one takes place this Tuesday, November 21st, at the Huntington Hilton on Long Island and will be a Practical Skills day long session entitled "Basic Workers’ Compensation Law Practice". Our local Seminar Chair is my good friend and colleague, Doug Hayden, Esq., former Chief Legal Officer and Acting CEO of the New York State Insurance Fund, and now a Vice President with Wright Risk Management. Doug has asked me to speak on "Compensation from the Claimant’s Perspective" and "Issues of the Day", including Section 32 Settlements and Medicare Set Aside agreements. Although labeled "basic", this course would be a great refresher for even experienced disability lawyers, even those specializing in Social Security Disability or ERISA Long Term Disability claims. It should be an instructive day. Hope to see you there.
Thanks to my colleague Bill Crossett from the NYSBA Torts, Insurance and Compensation Section for asking me to speak. Finally, Happy Thanksgiving to all readers of the Disabled Worker Law Blog.
