Leaders In Workers’ Compensation Law

The law firm of Walsh and Hacker was founded in 1967 in Albany, New York, by Thomas J. Walsh to provide strategic representation and attentive service to employers and insurance carriers. Our firm provides employers, insurance carriers and third-party administrators with legal representation and counsel in the areas of work injury, third-party liability and general liability defense.

Every one of our trial lawyers practices in workers’ compensation litigation. Our attorneys’ decades of combined experience in this complex field enable clients to make informed decisions when contesting a claim. We also bring uncommon experience in longshoremen claims (LHWCA), General Municipal Law §207(a) and §207(c) police and firefighter claims, and third-party defense.
