Being out of work due to an injury can be very stressful, especially if you have a family to support. Diamond Law Practice, PLLC provides quality legal representation to help you regain normalcy in your life while maximizing all available benefits to you under the Defense Base Act, Longshore & Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, and New York Workers' Compensation Law.


During my practice, I have obtained extensive experience in litigating claims brought under the Defense Base Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, War Hazards Compensation Act, New York Workers' Compensation Law, Foreign Voluntary insurance coverage, Occupational Accident insurance, and the Jones Act.

I have represented numerous Fortune 500 companies in litigated proceedings before the US Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, the US Department of Labor’s Office of Administrative Law Judges, the Benefits Review Board, New Jersey’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development, New York’s Workers’ Compensation Board, the US District Court for the District of New Jersey, and other administrative and judicial courts throughout the country.  I excel at conducting depositions, negotiating settlements, preparing economic exposure reports, drafting pleadings, conducting discovery, and handling all aspects of active litigation. 

I have recovered tens of millions of dollars in reimbursement under the War Hazards Compensation Act involving claims stemming from statutorily defined war-risk hazards by creating procedures to streamline recovery from the Division of Federal Employees' Compensation ("DFEC").

I have gained broad experience in handling claims brought under the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law and regularly advised insurance companies, employers and TPA's on effective claims management and favorable claim resolution. In addition, I have litigated matters before the NYSWCB district offices in Brooklyn, Harlem, Staten Island, Queens, Hempstead, Long Island, Peekskill, Newburgh, Binghamton, Syracuse, Rochester and Albany.
