Our philosophy is the four tenets we live by at Jones Jones LLC. Four attributes we require of every lawyer, every executive, every practice area. There’s a reason we’re one of the oldest insurance defense ﬁrms in the country. We hold ourselves up to a standard that naturally results in a faculty and facility exceeding every expectation you have. “Legal Defense Refreshed” is not just an empty slogan; we work hard every day to stay on the cutting edge of insurance defense.
Founded by the first secretary of the Workers’ Compensation Board, our ﬁrm has represented the interests of employers and insurance carriers since the very inception of the Workers’ Compensation Law. Jones Jones LLC is one of the oldest insurance defense ﬁrms in New York, but our experience exceeds the mere number of years we’ve been practicing. Here are just a few of the positions our attorneys currently hold:
- Former President of the Workers’ Compensation Bar Association
- Chair of the New York County Lawyers’ Workers’ Compensation Committee
- Counsel to the New York Claim Association
- Secretary to the Department of Insurance Loss Transfer Advisory Committee
- Member of the Department of Insurance No-Fault Committee
- Business Representative in the Workers’ Compensation Loss of Wage Earning Capacity Task Force
- Loss Transfer Arbitrators for Arbitration Forums Inc.
- Contributing author of Workers' Compensation Law and Practice in New York (Scotti, Steven M., 2011)
- CEO and President of a New York workers’ compensation insurance carrier
- Qualifying Officer for one of the largest Third Party Administrators in the State
"Impossibilities recede as experience advances"
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
We’ve established a streamlined process for the handling of claims and are continually adapting and implementing new procedures and technologies to meet the changing needs of our clients. From digital dictation allowing easy transfer of reports to paperless electronic ﬁles, to an iPad app allowing our attorneys to access ﬁles on the go, we make effective use of technology and continue to look for ways to provide our clients with a better product in a better way.
Moreover, our clients have direct, 24/7 access to their cases via our web portal allowing for real time defense coordination with efficiency that is simply unmatched. However, our innovative capacity goes well beyond just technology. We also dedicate ourselves to finding inventive legal solutions to protect our clients’ interests. While our firm may be 100 years old, we build our practice for 100 years into the future.
We pride ourselves on our streamlined case management system and no matter how efﬁcient our procedures become, we continually strive to ﬁnd a way to do it even better. The most recent example is our implementation of a client portal that allows clients to monitor their cases and communicate with our attorneys in real-time, all through our website.
Our extensive experience and effective use of technology have allowed us to accelerate our ofﬁce procedures to provide our clients with high-quality services while minimizing administrative costs. We also boast a 3 day turnaround on reports to ensure every client is as up-to-date on case progress as they wish, settlement paperwork is drafted within 24 hours, and our attorneys respond to communications within one business day.
"There’s a way to do it better…find it."

Although I have worked for different insurance carriers over the years, I have always insisted that their firm defend my files. My choice is based upon the fact that their attorneys are very knowledgeable in their chosen field and that they pay attention to even the minor details of each file I assign them. – Luz Acevedo, Eastern Claims Region, Crum & Forster
