Jerry Sisk has been handling and trying workers' compensation cases since 2003.  While workers' compensation insurers attempt to delay or avoid paying owed benefits to injured workers, Jerry has devoted his career to making sure his clients receive the compensation they deserve. 

 

Earlier in his career, Jerry represented insurance companies so he knows first-hand how these companies defend against lawsuits by manipulating the legal system in their favor.  He knows what it takes to prove entitlement to benefits.  Because insurance companies have infinite dollars to fight your case they can hire expensive defense lawyers and investigators to assist in the denial of your benefits. Moreover, they can send you to their doctors to obtain medical reports which potentially can be used against you during your case.  Jerry understands this and works diligently to make sure that all the necessary steps are taken to win at trial.

 

Jerry grew up in Minnesota and spent all but his college years living in the Twin Cities.  When he was not participating in sports at Wayzata High School, he would be busy “flipping burgers” at his family restaurant.  In college, Jerry clerked for former Representative Jim Ramstad in Washington, D.C.   Jerry is a graduate of the prestigious James Madison College at Michigan State University and the University of Minnesota Law School. 

 

Jerry is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, Minnesota Association of Justice, and Anoka County Bar Association. He is also currently the Treasurer for the Anoka County Bar Association.  He is a contributor to the Minnesota Association of Justice Trial magazine, where he is published.  He is frequent presenter throughout the State of Minnesota on various workers' compensation topics. 

 

 Jerry, his wife, and three kids reside in Blaine, Minnesota.  When he is not chasing his kids around the house and coaching their activities, he enjoys snowboarding, woodworking, bicycling, and doing anything outdoors. 

 

Jerry prides himself on representing members of the Minnesota workforce who have been injured on the job and need ethical, responsive, and zealous representation.  No commericals, no highway billboards - just great lawyering. Call today for a free consultation.

Social Security Disability
I am working with Jerry and his team to assist me navigate the complex Social Security Disability process. As soon as I retained Jerry I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders. His tremendous knowledge and expertise is evident during each interaction with him or his team. They are very quick to answer any question I might ask. Also they utilize multiple modes of communication to meet my needs such as email, phone or in person if needed. I strongly recommend Jerry Sisk and his team at Mottaz and Sisk legal services.

Workers comp
Mr. Sisk, has been handling my case since 2011 to present day. Having a work related injury is no fun. And not understanding what you should do is even worst. My case was very complicated, to do the fact it had to do with 2 different time periods. I must say I was not the most understanding client nor was I very respectful to this man. It took some time to get to understand the process and that Mr. Sisk was not by any means possiblie going to not make sure I knew what was going on. I became so over come with the whole process that I took it out on Mr. Sisk. Mr. Sisk NEVER gave up on me, in fact I think we have become very good friends. So if your looking for someone who will fight for you... I say by all means give Mr. Sisk an opportunity to help. Thanks Mr. Sisk and all your crew for the help I have gotten from you!!

Amazing advocate!
I had to hire a work comp attorney when the work comp insurance company forced my hand to do so. Jerry came highly recommended by a friend's parents who work for a work comp insurance company. I was very stressed out and lost in the whole process, but once I met with Jerry I was more at ease. He thoroughly explained how the work comp process works and he promised he would be there to support me through it. He sure lived up to that promise. Jerry was a strong advocate for me when I didn't have the strength to be an advocate for myself. The work comp process makes a person feel so worthless and defeated. I have seen firsthand how passionate Jerry is about his job and how he goes to bat for his clients. His knowledge and professionalism is top notch. I would not hesitate to recommend Jerry to anyone who is in the same situation I was in. Jerry helped me win my case! I couldn't have done it without him and I am eternally grateful.

Work comp
My injury occurred in 2006. I found out very quickly that the system is very in favor of the employer and the corrupt insurance companies. My friend recommended that I contact Jerry Sisk. Glad I did! I’m sure he’s very busy, however, I always felt like my case was the most important. When I had questions he called me back quickly. He also took the time to explain it at my level. Can’t say enough good things about Jerry. If you need a work Comp lawyer, he’s the best! Professional.

Work Comp Case
As someone who has never had a work injury/Workers Compensation case, I had a lot of questions and concerns about my case and the Workers Compensation process. Jerry was great to work with in my case. He was easy to reach and prompt in answering my questions and informing me of my rights under Minnesota Workers Compensation. He worked thorough and diligently from beginning to finish with my case. I would highly recommend Jerry for anyone looking for a Workers Compensation attorney.

Workers comp
When I was injured at work, I was assigned an insurance adjuster through Workers Comp. I felt bullied and knew I was not given the information or help I needed to get better. Jerry was the best advocate for me. He took over communication with the adjuster and explained my rights as an injured employee. He insured I was given the treatments I needed to heal. If you are looking for someone who takes the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions and fight for your rights, Jerry is your guy! I highly recommend him!!!

Work Comp Attorney
I was injured at work, and work comp started fighting to pay for medical bills and doctor appointments that i had as a result of my work injury. I started looking for attorney's and found Jerry. He has helped me through this process so much. He has fought from day one for work comp to pay for all of my medical bills, doctors appointments, wage loss and more. He is always there to help if i ever have a question. The thing that i liked most about having Jerry as my attorney is that he helped out every way he could and took time to explain things to me when i did not understand something. If Jerry was busy and i needed help his co-workers and paralegal was there to help in anyway that hey could.

Three years after a medical emergency at work, I was notified by letter that the incident had not been settled. Unsure of what this meant for me or how to proceed, I sought counsel from Jerry. My stress lifted as he simplified this complex system involving Medicare and private insurers, keeping me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend his expertise and professionalism!

Very happy!!
Jerry Sisk has been nothing but amazing. He is handling my work comp case. He is always very professional, respectful and works hard for his clients. I highly recommend Jerry, as he has guided me through the process and continues to help me in every aspect of my case. I'm an RN who unfortunately sustained a significant work injury requiring a spinal fusion. I would not be where I am today without him. I'm back work in the ER and have a deep passion for my career, it's just a bit more challenging after such a surgery. I have full confidence that he will always have my best interest at heart, helping me to make the right decisions. I'm feel informed and I trust him completely. Highly recommend Mr. Sisk.

Literally a life saver...
We came to Jerry feeling desperate and defeated. The attorney we had previously been working with had done little to nothing with our case and couldn't ever seem to be available to us. We hired Jerry immediately after meeting him largely due to the comfort and confidence he quickly instilled in us regarding out case. Jerry handled everything quickly, digently, and with excellent and effective communication. When the time came to discuss a settlement in mediation, Jerry walked us through the process and we were able to proceed with confidence in our decision making. In the end, we reached a settlement that was better than we had even hoped for and we know that we have Jerry to thank for that. We would recommend Jerry to anyone without hesitation. He really cared and wasn't above showing it.

Great workers' comp and social security attorney
Jerry is very knowledgeable in both workers' compensation and social security. He and his staff are great to work with and are very quick to respond to any emails or phone calls. He was successful in both my workers' comp and SSDI cases. I am grateful for his great representation in getting my case filed and won!

workers' compensation issue
I contacted Jerry Sisk to resolve a workers' compensation matter. It was an old injury and the insurance company denied payment. Jerry got the situation resolved and got all our medical bills paid.

"Jerry Sisk is an excellent workers’ compensation attorney. Bright, energetic and talented – he possesses the willingness to try cases when necessary- balanced by the discernment to resolve disputes amicably where appropriate. Guided by a good moral compass and possessing a solid set of technical skills, Jerry provides superb representation for his clients. Jerry possesses an able grasp of the intricacies of the complex Minnesota Workers’ Compensation law. Before coming to work at the Law Office of Thomas D. Mottaz, he spent 5 years working at the premier St. Paul insurance defense firm of Heacox and Hartman. There he learned the nuts and bolts of defending a case. This tutelage prepared him well for his position. In addition to providing zealous and capable representation to his clients, Jerry also presents at various seminars and he periodically writes for local legal publications. Jerry is also very active in the local bar association. As such, I highly recommend him."
