Overview

Margaret sees herself as a guide and counselor through a complex, risky process. Her goal is to demystify worker’s compensation law so that companies and their insurers are protected.

A former paralegal, Margaret understands the legal process from beginning to end, and she works to present a streamlined approach for clients to help them navigate changing regulations. She’s known for both her thoroughness and her practical strategies and solutions.

Margaret focuses her practice on worker’s compensation defense, including analysis of compensability claims, negotiation of settlements and communication with claims representatives. She also offers training sessions so that clients can avoid issues when possible, with a special focus on members of the insurance industry and self-insured employers who handle worker’s compensation claims.
