Workers’ compensation is widely underestimated in its complexity. In fact, at the foundation of the law is not a lawsuit as many believe, but rather an administrative, no fault claims process. Its importance lies in that it remains an employees’ exclusive remedy against an employer for indemnity and medical benefits resulting from a work-related injury.

This CLE course will explain New York Workers’ Compensation Law and the different case types, client management styles and an evaluation of how to determine which cases are worthwhile in order to operate a successful, boutique practice, something thought to be impossible. The course will include practical strategies and defense and delay tactics practiced by the Carrier and how to best handle them and how proactively manage your clients’ expectations as well as your own.

Lecturer Bio

Camila P. Medici, Esq.

I graduated from Hofstra Law at the top of my class. While studying at Hofstra I was elected Student Bar Association Representative and Student Bar Association Treasurer, was a faculty appointed member of the Dean’s Advisory Committee, and the recipient of the Dean’s Academic Scholarship, the Gonzalez-Ochoa Scholarship (for my community service initiatives), and the prestigious Jonathan Falk Memorial Scholarship, given to the student in a graduating class who exhibits academic excellence, interest and concern for their peers, and success in the fields of Labor & Employment Law. I received my B.A. in Criminology and Criminal Justice and a Certificate in Latin American Studies from the University of Maryland, College Park (top 1% of my class), where I was also a member of the Student Senate and Kappa Delta Sorority.

My experience comes from various fields, ranging from my prior position as Head Attorney of Workers’ Compensation at Schwartzapfel Partners and four law firms where I had previously worked, to my student-lawyer position at the Mediation Clinic at Hofstra Law School, my internship at the Maryland State Legislature, and my services to the community. As Head of Schwartzapfel Partners’ Workers’ Compensation Department I was in charge of developing the department from scratch, while simultaneously successfully representing injured workers, concentrating my practice in Union Member representation. I developed a signature, multi-faceted approach that is nurturing to the injured worker, efficient in the court room, and aggressive on the Insurance Carriers and their Attorneys. I also developed in-depth knowledge of Workers’ Compensation law. My background has provided the qualities that I believe make me the ideal attorney: competence, charisma, motivation, reliability, and professionalism.

I have a record of professional success that speaks for itself. Being multilingual helped tremendously in this regard, for I was able to reach Clients that would otherwise have gone elsewhere in search of a lawyer that could better understand their needs. I am also a skilled negotiator that successfully negotiated multiple settlements and stipulations, a skill I obtained while working for a Delegate at the Maryland General Assembly. While working there, I was able to get 36 co-partisan signatures for her most important bill, which rendered the bill’s ultimate passage after the bill had failed twice prior to my arrival at the legislature. In return, I was honored by Governor Bob Ehrlich, in recognition of my tireless march through the assembly effectively persuading Delegates to sign what later became one of Maryland’s most important bills. At the Mediation Clinic my abilities and demeanor granted me the title of most sought after mediator. That experience also enlightened me to the rewards of avoiding litigation by concentrating on results that meet the needs and goals of all parties of interest.

To me, success is measured not only through productivity and monetary gain, but also through valuable humanitarian work. My experience with underprivileged communities has broadened my perspectives and increased my analytical skills as well as my inquisitive personality. I have become more knowledgeable of human nature and the hardships of life that go beyond its economic facet.
