Susan Duffy Retires from Partnership

Susan Duffy will retire from her H&W partnership but will maintain "Special Counsel" status with the firm effective 6/30/22. Susan intends to be available for special projects for the firm from time-to-time. Susan was one of the founding partners of Hamberger & Weiss. She specialized in complex claims and has always had an interest in legislation and policy issues. She was a member of the Governor’s Advisory Committee on the Re-codification of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law. She was also a team member for the Business Council of New York on the Governor’s Task Force, which worked to establish procedures and guidelines to effectuate the 2007 reform legislation on loss of wage earning capacity and permanent partial disability benefit caps.

A prior Chair of the New York State Bar Workers’ Compensation Division, Susan has lectured widely on workers’ compensation topics and mentored many attorneys and claims representatives on the vagaries of New York Workers’ Compensation practice over the years. Susan is listed in The Best Lawyers in America in the field of Workers’ Compensation Law and was inducted as a Fellow in the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in 2012. 

We will miss Susan’s daily presence in the office, her wisdom, wit, good humor, and eagerness to take on difficult problems. We wish her and her family all the best in her retirement.
