Idea Sharing

The Michigan Association for Justice (MAJ) presented its Annual Workers Compensation/Social Security Disability Seminar “The 91% Solution: Sherlock Holmes Investigates the Case of the Missing Remedy & Dr. Watson Reminisces about When Workers Could be Socially Secure” on Friday, Jan. 17, at the Westin Hotel in Southfield. Among those speaking at the seminar were (l-r) Joel Alpert of Alpert & Alpert, Dearborn attorney Daryl Royal, Fremont attorney John Braden, Robert MacDonald of MacDonald & MacDonald PLLC, Chief Magistrate Lisa Klaeren of the Workers’ Compensation Board of Magistrates, WILG President Chuck Davoli, and John Charters of Charters, Heck, O’Donnell, Petrulis, & Tyler PC. The seminar “is an opportunity for practitioners in workers comp/Social Security to come together every year to share ideas—discussions about what’s going on in the courts and the legislature,” MacDonald noted.  “It’s been a tough time for workers in Michigan over the past year under Snyder. There have only been 15 open awards of benefits in workers compensation and hopefully the seminar will generate ideas and discussions about how we can fix that problem and move forward so that workers are better protected.”
