Penelope was in-house counsel for Travelers Insurance Company where she learned the intricacies of the claims process working on a variety of claims, including catastrophic cases.
 
Penelope has defended specific accident claims as well as occupational exposure claims filed against all our clients. She handles workers' compensation claims from the filing of claim petitions through the appeals process. This includes trials of occupational claims, admitted accidents as well as Second Injury Fund trials. Penelope is directly involved in all facets of the litigation which includes directing and performing investigations of allegations of occupational exposure. The investigations include review and preparation of various air quality studies, lab analysis and the meeting and interviewing of employees and supervisors of the various municipal entities whose testimony is necessary for the defense of those claims. In addition, Penelope has prepared and taken testimony of medical witnesses in the fields of oncology, pulmonary disability, neuropsychiatry as well as orthopedics.
 
Penelope has tried approximately 15 cases to conclusion before the Division of Workers' Compensation, including Motions for Medical Treatment and Temporary Disability Benefits, Second Injury Fund cases and has taken and successfully litigated three appeals. Of note, Penelope was successful before the New Jersey Appellate Division in a case where the Appellate Division affirmed in the lower court ruling a homeowner is not a general contractor.
