Denver Workers’ Compensation Lawyers On Your Side
We Are The NFL Players Association’s Designated Colorado Workers’ Compensation Panel Counsel
“Navigating the end of a career is never easy. Especially when dealing with injuries. Michael Kaplan educated me about the many aspects of workers compensation law. We discussed at length my ever changing set of circumstances, made arrangements to handle those circumstances, and collectively made well informed decisions. Michael helped me understand the law and all of my options in a very professional, unbiased, and supportive manner. I always felt very comfortable working with Michael because of his confidence, knowledge, and expertise. He always made me feel like he truly wanted the best for me and my family. It was never about reaching a settlement or earning a commission. His main goal was to educate me and help me to the benefits I am legally entitled to. I would highly recommend working with him.”
– Joel Dreessen, Former Denver Bronco & NFL Player
