In the Q&A, Esther discusses her outlook on the practice of workers’ compensation law, claims-related challenges that employers and insurers are facing due to COVID-19, advice for young attorneys, and her goals for the new position.
“In this new role, I plan to partner with my co-chairs, Damon Gruber and Sean McKinley, to take our group to the next level,” Esther said. “They, along with respective state leaders, have done a phenomenal job of expanding Goldberg Segalla’s workers compensation group from New York into nine other states: New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Florida, Illinois, Missouri and California. Our next steps include expanding our strength and teams in those states, and eventually developing teams in other states. My goal is to continue to grow a larger national practice that can truly meet the needs of the country’s largest employers wherever they do business and face claims.”
