Edelstein Payne Workers Compensation Attorney Lawyer
315 E Jones St, Raleigh, NC 27601
Edelstein Payne's team helped my husband through a difficult job accident. His work injury nearly caused permanent damage. Unfortunately, the employer did not want to follow the North Carolina law until we involved an attorney. Travis was honest and personable, and acted quickly to advise my husband of his rights, and quickly defended him. It was amazing how quickly the employer responded once they received contact from a workers' compensation lawyer. My husband was able to receive the treatment needed, and was very happy with the case results. Based upon our experience, I would highly recommend no employee try to go against an employer denying their benefits. It really is necessary to have an experienced lawyer on your side. This was a family affair, and everyone in our family would recommend Edelstein Payne.
When I first came to Travis, I was confused and lacking confidence with the Workers' Comp legal system. I called several attorneys, but struggled to find someone who seemed to care or had sincere interest in my case. When I first met him, he came down the stairs of his modest facility, and had on a Jimi Hendrix T-shirt and jeans. 20 minutes later, I realized I met a true Salt-of-the-Earth Dude. In an hour, Travis taught me more about my rights than my previous attorney had in nearly a year. Travis even advised me of benefits I should have applied for months prior to meeting him. Well, I felt and still feel Travis was a well-timed gift. I don't know that I'll ever be able to truly thank him enough. He was honest, and said it would be a lot of work, but he'd be happy to help. He organized my case quickly, and instructed my former employer to stop contacting me. What a relief! Travis' team was outstanding! Angie in particular was always exceptionally kind. They sent me a copy of all communications, and I never felt in the dark. They also never pressured me to settle. Travis is not a doctor, however his handling of my case genuinely helped my emotional health. Later, my case settled for 800% more $ than the previous attorney asked me to accept. Plus, thanks to Travis' professional advice, I continue to receive very necessary benefits which I wouldn't have known I qualified for were it not for Travis' compassionate, honest, professional advice. Regretfully, I remain permanently disabled, however am able to live above the poverty line thanks to Travis' ability to advocate for me, and help me see the big picture. My only regret would be not having gone to Travis 1st. I have referred family and friends to Travis, because I feel his rare combination of Honesty, Caring, and Fighting skills are truly hard to find. If you're finding yourself like I was, and simply unsure what to do with regard to your on the job accident, I would highly recommend calling Edelstein Payne 1st.
