I have known Mr. Demas for over 12 years. He used to practice against me in litigated workers compensation claims and I knew him to be well prepared and aggressive - but also professional. When he decided to wear the white hat, I began referring him cases involving employment law and employee benefits. He does an excellent job for his clients.
