ZERO UPFRONT COSTS! YOUR ROAD TO COMPENSATION STARTS HERE! FLORIDA'S PREMIER WORKERS' COMP LAW FIRM. UNMATCHED RESULTS. FREE CONSULTATION AVAILABLE.

Stephen Berlin is a seasoned workers' compensation lawyer based in Florida, with an impressive 29 years of experience in the field. His legal practice is solely focused on handling workers' compensation claims, and he is highly regarded as an expert in this area.

 

During his career, Stephen spent 17 years creating and managing the in-house legal department of a significant Florida workers' compensation carrier. He obtained his law degree and Masters of Business Administration from the University of Florida, and his undergraduate degree from the prestigious Vanderbilt University.

 

Stephen is a highly sought-after speaker and has delivered over 100 seminars throughout Florida. His clients benefit from his steadfast commitment to providing them with a comprehensive understanding of all legal aspects of their case. He prepares his clients for the strategies employed by insurance adjusters, who often aim to reduce their benefits and diminish the value of their claim. Although insurance companies frequently claim to prioritize their clients' best interests, Stephen knows firsthand that this is often not the case. Insurance adjusters frequently scrutinize claims to find reasons to reject or reduce benefits, despite the worker's entitlement to compensation. In such cases, injured workers are often wrongfully denied benefits, but legal remedies exist to obtain the compensation they deserve.

 

Stephen firmly believes in empowering his clients with the necessary knowledge and resources to counteract these tactics and ensure they receive their entitled benefits, rather than what the insurance adjuster deems appropriate.

Unbeatable firm!
I absolutely enjoyed the professionalism and accuracy and a courtesy the ladies provided for me. They provided me with accurate information and I got a check within 2 months. I will always use them if I need them in the future.

Great experience so far!
After hiring another firm i quickly found out what a mistake that was! One call to the Berlin office changed everything! I spoke directly to Stephen Berlin and he was excited to help me terminate the other agreement and get me the medical treatment i needed and the legal representation as well. I look forward to working with them throughout my case!

Ms.
I spoke with Regan who listened to my Worker’s Compensation dilemma. After she had a good sense of what I needed she then transferred me to attorney David Ruiz who gave me excellent insight and advice. I felt that he was going to be able to help me finally get a Worker’s Comp physician to assist in the further treatment of my fractured hip - after over three months of no Worker’s Comp physician since my surgery. I am so relieved to have this support and gladly hired this attorney.

Attorney Scully the best
He is the most compassionate, caring, kind, understanding lawyer and a dam hard worker along with his staff which they are the best, Sydney and all the others that work there, they care and it shows. If you have a Workcomp injury sign up with Mr. Scully and boom the nasty, most abusive people I have ever meet, SEGEWHICK ow did I say that ?? third party Workcomp companies that the only purpose is to treat you like a dog, suddenly stop when attorney Scully gets to them, he is a fighter no matter what your claim will bring he fits for you and fits and so does his staff, please for peace of mind call attorney Scully why he will talk as long as you need too, he listens and he will be HONEST with you, I consider him to be the best Workcomp attorney out there, call no fee to just talk with him, and from my heart I thank you Mr Scully and staff for the most incredible work and caring and determination that you showed and gave me, you all are the best.
