A NOTE TO INJURED WORKERS FROM ATTORNEY ALAN J. SHAPIRO, NATIONWIDE PRACTITIONER OF FEDERAL WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAW
Are you a federal worker who has been hurt on the job, or contracted a work-related disease? Do you have questions about FECA (the Federal Workers Compensation Act), or the OWCP (Office of Workers Compensation Programs)? Do you have questions about your rights in regards to Federal Workers’ Comp work injuries or diseases?
We represent our clients. We do not refer you to another firm. We are not a referral service. We do our own representation. Our fee schedule is beneficial to the injured worker pursuant to the guidelines established by the Department of Labor (DOL). We represent civilian workers injured overseas or on military bases (Defense Base Act cases), Non-Appropriated Funds Claims, and Longshore claims. We also represent workers exposed to nuclear radiation.
My Story: How I started practicing Federal Workers’ Compensation
Three weeks after I started practicing law in 1962, my father called me into his office to discuss a new case. Sitting in the client chair was a man wearing a blue uniform with the words “Post Office”. My father said: “AJ, I want you to represent this man.” I replied: “But Dad, I don’t know anything about Federal Workers’ Compensation.” He answered: “You already know more than most lawyers – at least you know it is a Federal Workers’ Compensation case.”
I have represented USPS workers from that day to the present. I now represent USPS workers in every state. Our firm provides legal representation throughout the United States for injured civilian employees of the Federal Government from all Federal Agencies including:
- Post Office (USPS)
- The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
- The Veterans Administrations (VA)
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- The Transportation Security Administration (TSA)
- Department of Justice (DOJ)
- Department of the Interior (DOI, Park Service)
- Department of Defense (DOD)
At any point in the process of seeking Federal Workers’ Compensation or appealing a worker’s compensation case, the advice of an attorney is helpful.
Let our family fight for your family.
