It seems the paralegal decides what messages and information, if any, your attorney is given. The people who might occasionally answer the phone are rude and unprofessional. Found out 6 months after the fact, that I had been reassigned to another attorney when mine retired.

The communication and responsiveness is terrible. You are at the mercy of the paralegals, who may or may not give you correct information, can be disrespectful, and do not return calls in a timely manner (not days, weeks). These people seem burned out and not at all compassionate to what you, as the injured client, are going through. The worker's comp. system is horrible to deal with, and being represented by this firm does not make this process easier.

this firm would not return my calls at all. until I called three times and said I would be in that same day because I needed answers to my denial letter from my hearing. this is a very stressful process and on top of that having to deal with paralegal that do not return my call. I was very stressed out and He is not going to help me with my appeal process. the attorney said that I would have to do it on my own.

The attorney was competent. Urgency is not one of their strengths.
