About Our Partners at SLD


...and The Four Commitments We Make to Our Clients

Monheit Law is pleased to be working with Larry Levin, Esq. and the firm of Shor Levin DeRita on workers compensation matters. Together, let us help you.

The Real Lowdown:
There are Four Commitments We Make to Our Clients:

 
1. Honesty and plain talk. If we don't think we can provide significant value, we won't take your case. We level with every person who is seeking representation. We're not interested in signing up people whose case will not be an absolute front burner priority.
2. Fast Action. It is critically important that momentum is established right away. We will position your case immediately to the insurance company. By aggressively pursuing your case, we are going to be in the best chance to obtain a full and fair recovery in the least amount of time.
3. Stay in Touch. You have the right to know what's happening every step of the way. Insurance companies will create delays in the hopes of getting you to agree to a smaller settlement. We know you want to be kept in the loop and so we make ourselves accessible to you. We are not averse to calling you and giving you an update.
4. Keep the heat on the insurance company. There is not a week goes by that your file isn't front and center. We are constantly balancing our client's need for a full and fair settlement with the practical requirement that the case is settled quickly. The only way to achieve that is to keep the insurance company's feet to the fire.


About our partners at Shor Levin & Derita

For the past 23 years, SLD has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to "the little guy". Their passion for helping those in need continues to grow today. They know how difficult it can be to deal with the bureaucracy of insurance companies. Big insurance companies don't want you to know your rights. Many employers and even union brass don't want you to know your rights. Insurance companies routinely-by policy-deny your claims, minimize your claims, try to confuse you, and try to intimidate you. Even the lawyers who represent the injured sometimes sacrifice your long term benefit for their short term gain.

About the Bulldog Lawyer — Larry Levin, Esq.

"Many years ago, as a young lawyer, I worked for an insurance company for a brief time. I was instructed by my supervisors on several occasions to recommend settlements to injured workers that were not in their best interests. I guess I was naive, but frankly I was shocked at the callousness of these company executives. That situation was a real eye opener for me. So I refused to make those kinds of recommendations, and I vowed from that day forward to work for workers to make sure that employers and insurers would be held accountable."
