Hamberger & Weiss LLP Celebrates 30 Years!
July 1, 2021 marked our firm’s 30th anniversary. At our founding in 1991, we were eight attorneys. Over three decades we, along with our partner clients, have been witness to enormous changes in the New York Workers’ Compensation system, including the 1996 reforms with the adoption of Section 32 Settlements, the creation of e-Case in 1999, the Medicare Set-Aside issues which arose in 2001, the 2007 Reform Legislation with durational caps on PPD benefits and the Rocket Docket, the closure of the Second Injury and Stale Claims Funds and, most recently, the implementation of the Virtual Hearing system which allowed for nearly uninterrupted adjudication of claims during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over these thirty years we have worked side-by-side with you, our valued clients, to navigate through all of these changes and opportunities. In the process our firm has grown to forty attorneys, representing our clients at hearings statewide through the Virtual Hearing system, as well as the related work of 32s, MSAs, Conditional Payment resolutions and Loss Transfer arbitrations.
It has been our privilege to serve you for all these years, and we look forward to continuing our relationships for the next 30 years!
