About Samuel

Learn Samuel’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Workers compensation
    I represent injured and disabled workers in New York State Workers' Compensation claims. I also represent a small number of employers.

    22 years

  2. Social Security & Disability

    22 years


If you've been injured at work or developed a medical condition because of your job, you may be entitled to medical treatment for the injury or condition and monetary benefits for time you lost from work as a result.  Even if your disability is unrelated to your job or an accident, if you paid into the Social Security system when you were working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.  I represent the injured and disabled, helping them to receive the benefits they're entitled to under the law.  Because I work alone--even answering my own phone--I can offer a more personal, closer representation relationship than the big firms where secretaries man the phones and a different lawyer might appear at each hearing or answer each phone call.

In both WC and SSD, fees must be approved by the agency involved, and are payable out of your benefits, so I only get paid if you get paid.  In Workers' Compensation, the usual fee request is 15%, and in Social Security Disability, the agency's pre-approved expedited fee is 25% up to a maximum that changes from time to time.

If you need my help, contact me at.  Remember--you can never get reliable legal advice on-line; information here is too general to know whether you qualify or not.  To find out more, contact an attorney directly.

Great Lawyer
Let me start off by saying he is not my attorney. Though I wish he was. I contacted Mr. Flatt with some clarifying question I had regarding my case, seeing that I was not getting the answers from my own attorney. This man is AMAZING! He listened to my concerns, then took the time to explain step by step what was actually going on with my case. He is extremely knowledgeable around workers comp law and will certainly steer you in the right direction. Most important, he will take the time to be sure you have a full understanding about your case and advise you on best next steps. It is with great appreciation I recommend this Lawyer.
