Non-Litigation Workers' Compensation Counseling

Experienced Workers' Comp Attorney Spencer Aldrich is here to counsel, educate, and advise where legal representation is not applicable.

Do you have questions about your WC matter, even though nothing has been denied by the insurance company and everything seems to be going “OK”? 

Workers’ compensation claims are very, very complicated and it’s easy to get confused by the insurance company, or the system, or all of it… Even if nothing seems to be going “wrong.” It's natural to have questions, and to want the opinion of someone with knowledge, expertise, and who is on your side because oftentimes information in a workers’ compensation matter flows one direction: from the insurance claims adjuster to you. 

At Aldrich law, we understand the importance of providing caring counseling, education, and advice even in situations where traditional legal representation is not applicable.


How Non-Litigation Workers’ Compensation Counseling works: 


  1. How to Start: Click [here] to contact us and start the process. We’ll respond quickly to get some basic information and get an initial meeting scheduled. 

  2. Cost: The initial meeting, up to 1 hour, is $200. 

  3. Initial Meeting: At the initial meeting Mr. Aldrich will provide any counseling, education, or advice you might need: 

    • Perhaps you are looking for an overview of this system, and where your matter stands within it? 

    • Perhaps you're curious what comes next, and how you might prepare for it? 

    • Did the insurance company send you a communication that you don't quite understand? 

    • Do you have questions about a “recorded statement” that the insurance company says you have to participate in?

    • Are you being forced to go to an IME exam and you're not sure what that is or how it will go or how you should behave?

    • Maybe you just want someone experienced to look over your file and set your mind at ease that you haven't been taken advantage of, or missed something.

  4. Beyond the Initial Meeting: If a client wants to continue non-litigation counseling beyond the first meeting, Aldrich Law charges on an hourly basis at $375 an hour, based on increments of 1/10th of an hour. 


Important things to know: 


  1. This is only for non-litigation matters: This service is intended to be used in situations where the client doesn't think anything has gone wrong with their claim. They simply want expert advice, and the opportunity to have questions answered about the Workers' Compensation system and their matter.

  2. This is a “Limited Scope” representation: The purpose of this service is to answer the client’s questions, educate, and counsel them about the workers’ compensation system as a whole and about their claim in general under the assumption that there is not a current need for litigation. Aldrich Law will not be advocating for or representing the client before any applicable body (i.e. the WC insurance company or the Workers’ Compensation Board or Division). 

  3. What if there ends up actually being something wrong with my WC matter? It's possible that during the initial meeting it will become apparent that there actually is some element of a client's workers’ compensation matter that does need to be litigated.

    If that happens, the initial meeting will simply flow into a litigation-based consultation. If the client and Aldrich Law agree on representation, a board-approved workers’ compensation litigation retainer will be signed and traditional representation will proceed. 

    A client will not be charged if the “non-litigation” initial meeting ends up being a litigation consult. 


  4. Documents: If a client wants Aldrich Law to review documents, it is the client's responsibility to provide those documents. The client should know that this may involve reaching out to their workers compensation insurer to request copies of documents and slash or their whole claim file.
