Workers' Compensation & Disability Attorney
“The system is stacked against injured and disabled workers, so my job is to tip the scales back in your favor. Even if you speak English, it is too easy to get lost in a system where employers, doctors, insurance adjusters and even friends give you too much and even conflicting advice. I am proud that I have been able to use my Mexican background, and fluency in Spanish to help my Latin American clients obtain their rightful benefits. I work hard so that all my clients understand the system, avoid costly mistakes, and stay focused on what is important – getting healthy and supporting their family.”
Workers' Compensation Attorney
My passion for assisting and fighting for injured workers derives from a strong distaste for those who are always trying to take advantage of people who work hard and unfortunately get hurt. It is unacceptable to me that big business, behind the scenes and unbeknownst to the unsuspecting worker, preys on them and their families’ lack of knowing the system. In a system that takes advantage of injured workers, I make getting my clients quality care and compensation benefits my top priority…”
Workers' Compensation Attorney
As a Colorado Native, I feel very blessed to be able to use my 20 plus years of experience in the field of Workers’ Compensation to represent injured workers. I know firsthand how unrepresented claimants can undermine their recovery by failing to meet any of the deadlines in the system.
I began my career at the biggest insurance carrier in the state of Colorado and went on to work for a firm representing insurance carriers and employers. I have an insider’s perspective on how the insurance carriers operate and understand their motivations and tactics.
Workers' Compensation Attorney
Having previously worked for a large Colorado workers’ compensation defense firm, I have an inside understanding of the system, especially the insurance company’s strategies and goals when it comes to workers’ claims. I am able to use that experience to help my clients get the benefits they deserve.
I moved to Colorado from Long Island, New York, where I practiced Worker’s Compensation and criminal defense. Since moving to Colorado in 2014, I have specialized exclusively in Worker’s Compensation law.
As a former criminal defense attorney in New York, I know the importance of having the best attorney, when the stakes are high and personal. The Worker’s Compensation system can be confusing and intimidating. My mission is to get you the treatment you need and want and to fight for your right to get all the benefits you deserve.
When the deck is stacked against you, and you feel lost in the system, I’m here to guide you and give you peace of mind. When it’s your health and your livelihood at stake, you need me on your side.
“I enjoy my job because I love to help others. It is a good day when all the moving parts fall into place and we are able to get our clients their benefits.”

“When I come home to my family and reflect on my work, I think about how rewarding it is to be able to help people who feel vulnerable – especially those who struggle with a language barrier. I know what it’s like to be in their shoes, so putting them at ease brings me great satisfaction.”Before the transformation to her professional office life, Veronica pursued her passion as a DJ.

“I notice the different leadership styles at Kaplan Morrell most. Mike and Britton are such contrasting figures, yet they are very successful together. Each attorney has strength in areas where the other does not, which enables the firm to hurdle so many obstacles other law firms cannot.”Tammy rides motorcycles when not in the office. She has travelled to South Dakota for to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally more than a few times, and plans on returning in the future.Tammy began her career in Workers’ Compensation as an injured worker who was offered a position at the law firm that took her injury case.

“I notice the camaraderie most of all here. We have a great team – everyone works together to resolve issues.”Margaret is a world-class bowler, and is well-known as she feels quite comfortable using her spin to close out frames. The unique expertise that Margaret brings to her work, is that she was an adjuster for a third party administrator of a Workers Compensation insurance carrier. She left to find work elsewhere when she found the oppressive hours and high demands of adjusting became too overbearing. Her years of adjusting built up excellent communication strategies with adjusters, which pay great dividends in the long term.
