Why You Should Hire the Workers Compensation Attorneys at Kenton's Law Office to Represent You

Any occupation requires the employee to be in good health in order to fulfill the duties of his or her position. An injury, illness or disability can prevent an employee from performing the job in an optimal fashion or even put him or her completely out of commission, resulting in financial and emotional devastation for the injured worker and his or her family. That is why the workplace should be kept well-maintained for the protection of the employees. If an employee suffers an injury in the workplace, he or she may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.

    The Best of the Best. Social Security Disability
    Mr. Kenton Koszdin and his staff are fantastic. They are everything you hope a lawyer and staff will be. Everyone is very polite and friendly. They are very patient and understand dealing with the government is a complicated and stressful process They do everything to lighten the stress and burden from you. They are fantastic with response communication. They are extremely professional, organized and detail oriented. They do not give unrealistic expectations or make false promises of the potential outcome of your case. I feel they have been very transparent, fair, honest and ethical in all of their business dealings with me. I would highly recommend this law office and Mr. Kenton Koszdin to anyone seeking an experienced Attorney to fight their case for them. I feel this law office is the best of the best.

    An Outstanding SSDI Attorney
    After I submitted a disability claim that was denied, I scoured the internet to find a stellar attorney. Fortunately, I discovered Mr. Koszdin and his staff, who were very helpful. Mr. Koszdin filed a reconsideration on my behalf, which was also denied. I was somewhat distraught, but he assured me to retain hope, and continue the process, since the next step statistically is the client's best chance. Mr. Koszdin successfully represented me at an administrative hearing, and that was a game changer. He explained the back pay specifics, which i received 2 months after the hearing. After SS shortchanged the back pay, I contacted Kenton who assured me that in my situation, I should request the shortfall, which was ultimately received. Overall - easy to contact, keeps conversations brief & to the point, and knows the nuances of the process. If you're in this situation, do yourself a favor and contact Mr. Koszdin.

    Social Security case
    I am very pleased with the way my case was handled with the Kenton Darrow Koszdin Law Firm, from start to finish everyone was very friendly and took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. Attorney Kenton Darrow Koszdin and his assistant Jenny Ruiz kept me informed at all times and they were very accessible when I needed to reach them. I highly recommend them if you want an attorney who cares about their clients

    Very very satisfied
    Kenton Koszdin definitely did a lot of work behind the scenes for me. I am an Epileptic and got denied 2 times and the 3rd time I was able to requested a hearing and that is when I contacted another Lawyer and he lead me to Mr. Koszdin. Mr. Koszdin is straight to the point. He gets the job done and as I was waiting to see the judge a woman who works at the disability office asked who my attorney was when I told her she said, "oh you'll be fine. He's a feisty little guy" lol. After speaking on the phone with him for my prep he was direct and told me what areas to get into an what areas to stay away from within the hearing. He's tough and direct and that is what you need out of an attorney. He won my case and is well worth it. Thank you Kenton Koszdin!

    Mr. Koszdin was very professional, and helpful with us. We hired him after we were denied the first time for Disability. Mr. Koszdin was patient and explained everything and helped us navigate the complex systems around SSI.
