Best Advice in the Valley!
We spent over 2 1/2 hours getting information, asking questions, and finally understanding what we can do, after 8 months of runaround and misinformation from the DR. and the whole workers comp system. Robert has your best interest at heart and you can feel it in the first few minutes of the visit. We recommend Robert 100%.

Initial Consultation was very helpful with my case that is 7 years old, and I needed advice on proceeding after Rearrangement.
I had a free initial consultation with Mr Wisniewski today. He advised me on how to proceed with my case that is 7 years old. I had a rearrangement of my monthly award and needed to know if I should ask for a hearing. He advised me wisely and I am going to follow his advice on how to proceed. He also told me about a scholarship for children under 25 years old, that have parents who are on compensation. I am excited to apply for it since my daughter is a senior in college and we can get a scholarship hopefully. I never heard of this before he told me about it. I believe that he really wants to help people. I will recommend him to other massage therapists that need an Attorney.

Quit now in Appeals court with out.
2 stars, one for the use of your name and one for 42yrs served representing working people in the court system just not in my case that was handled by a new associate named Javier Grajeda. I really don't feel he tried very hard and communication was not his strong suit. The quickest thing he did was quit on me before the judge could even put a stamp on the request for review he had his letter of resignation all ready in the mail. Now I am having problems with getting the judge to look at all my proof saying it is to late, or exact words were on time but untimely. That was all him not submitting what I was sending him. But in the brief I had to write I did say it was his opinion that the Fed wc program and the Fed ssdI program have two different set of standard's. When it comes to a permanent disability. I just don't see how it can be so far apart in this decision.

Horrible customer service.
I called this office for information and guidance. Receptionist was very rude and not understanding. I was put on hold for a long time, then when I was finally helped by someone else regarding my sons case she was very rude as well. Never again. Your staff needs to be taught professional customer service. I definitely did not feel like I was calling a law firm.
