We Know Workers’ Compensation Inside And Out
At Hochberg & Hamar, PLLC, workers’ compensation is one of our primary practice areas. Our attorneys, William D. Hochberg and Rachel V. Hamar, have nearly 50 years of combined legal experience. Bill worked as an assistant attorney general for the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries and the Department of Social and Health Services. This provided him with an inside view of how the workers’ compensation system works. Both he and Rachel can advise you on how to navigate this system and obtain the maximum benefits to help you recover from your work injury.
If your case needs to be litigated, our firm is ready to fight for your claim in court. Should your claim be denied by the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals, we can prepare a compelling case to help you prevail at the Washington Court of Appeals or Washington Supreme Court.

Client Testimonial From An Injured Football Player
“I injured my knee playing professional football in 2012 for the Arena Football League in Washington. My claim was initially denied by Labor & Industries as the team for which I played claimed to be self-insured. Mr. Hochberg took my case and successfully argued I was covered under Washington workers’ compensation as a Washington state worker. I was able to receive all my time loss benefits, 3 knee surgeries, two years of vocational retraining and a permanent partial disability award. Without the help of Mr. Hochberg and his paralegal Lillian, I would not have received the medical treatment I needed to preserve my knee joint and the ability to find work in a new career.” – P.M.
