She was overseeing my husbands workers comp claim.we walked in and she seemed to be pissed already. My husband is 100% disabled. He must lay on his stomach on the floor 24/7. 10 years now. She Shia your lucky your over 50. He was entitled to 1+.5 years back pay. She said I’m going to ward you 6 months and if you appeal it I’ll deny your whole claim. How professional is that.

Wow. That is all I can say. She managed our settlement conference. Got the job done and done well. Stayed past 10PM to see it through. Fair, intelligent, forthright and effective. If you want to ask more than that, grab the next flight to Utopia.

Judge Finnegan is very efficient and runs her courtroom really well. She understands the complications involved in coverage matters where there are related state court filings and will hold most conferences by phone which pleases an insurance company client immensely on the saved billing.
