PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF INJURED PEOPLE SINCE 1990

Since 1990, I have been advocating for the rights of injured workers in Providence and throughout Rhode Island. In addition to pursuing workers' compensation claims, I have:

  • Worked for legislation that placed vocational rehab claims into the judicial process, strengthening injured workers' ability to obtain rightful treatment
  • Pushed for the right to reinstatement bill and free access to medical records
  • Argued and won cases before the Rhode Island Supreme Court and Rhode Island Workers' Compensation Appellate Division.

Workers Comp.
Mister Stephen Dennis handled my clam and got me a good settlement on my injury. He and his staff were very helpful at all times for me. I would send anyone to him to have a case or injury taken care of there are no fees unless he is successful!!
