If you have decided that hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer from Cohen & Cohen is necessary, the first step is scheduling the initial consultation.

If you’ve never met with workers compensation lawyers in Bethesda, MD, or maybe lawyers of any kind, you might be a little nervous and unsure of what to expect. The majority of consultations last about 30 minutes and involve talking about specific details about your case.

When you arrive to your consultation, a lawyer or paralegal will likely ask you background information about your case right away. He or she may ask you how you got injured at work, when the accident occurred, what types of injuries you suffered and if you are currently receiving medical treatment or not.

If you have any documentation that’s relevant to your case, remember to bring it with you to your meeting. Some of these documents may include:

  • List of witnesses
  • Medical bills
  • Photos of your injuries

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
