HOW CAN d’OLIVEIRA & ASSOCIATES HELP TODAY?
In college I interned for the CT Public Defender’s Office. After law school I handled criminal defense cases through the Massachusetts Bar Advocate Program. From there I went to work for d’Oliveira & Associates handling personal injury and social security disability claims.
My initial experience as a criminal defense attorney taught me how to advocate for my clients in and out of court. When I first started working for d’Oliveira & Associates, I worked very closely with Paul d’Oliveira for many years. He taught me how to review medical records, which is essential for personal injury and social security disability cases. He taught me how to fight for what is best for my clients.
Every day is different, I spend a lot of time meeting with clients and talking to medical providers, insurance companies and defense attorneys. I prepare for and attend arbitrations, mediations, depositions and Superior Court and Social Security Administration hearings. I also spend a huge amount of time reviewing files and coordinating with my staff on different cases. Further, I make sure I return every client’s phone calls as soon as possible as it is important that my client’s have all their questions answered and that we have a good relationship.
I love helping my clients. That usually means getting them excellent settlement money at the end of a case, or getting a client approved for social security disability benefits, but we strive to assist our clients with all problems that arise during the process.
Many insurance companies unfairly take advantage of injured parties. Although the vast majority of my cases settle out of court, sometimes when we don’t get a good offer to settle the case, we have to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, the average case takes approximately 3 years to get to trial and it is not fair to these people, who deserve swifter justice.
We are prepared to fight for you, whatever it takes. Our attorneys are diligent advocates with the knowledge and understanding of how to successfully handle and resolve personal injury and social security disability claims.
