Neil Abramson, senior partner at Rubin, Abramson LLP, is a recognized leader in the field of Workers’ Compensation and through his efforts has advanced the mission of the New York State Workers’ Compensation legal community.
As the youngest attorney ever to chair the New York State Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Law Division, he worked side by side with the administration and Chairman of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board. He served as Chair of the Compensation Law Division longer than any other Chair, an experience that enabled him to gain extensive knowledge of the intricacies of ever-changing Workers’ Compensation Board rules and regulations.
Mr. Abramson founded the Injured Workers’ Bar Association and the first PAC for injured workers’ attorneys. He also established the free attorney program for workers’ compensation Sept. 11th death cases, an effort for which he received an award from the State of New York.
During his career, Mr. Abramson has represented thousands of Teamsters on workers’ compensation claims.
Mr. Abramson protects injured workers through legal representation, and also by educating them of their rights under the law. He has contributed to the New York State Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Guide on the representation of injured workers. He conducts workshops for unions, and lectures widely on workers’ compensation topics before the New York State Bar Association, the New York State AFL-CIO Navigator program, and NYCOSH. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the New York Workers’ Compensation Alliance.
Mr. Abramson received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from The George Washington University in 1983 and his Juris Doctor from the School of Law at Quinnipiac University in 1986. He is admitted to practice in New York State, and in the United States District Courts in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
