I am very satisfied with Shelly Leeke Law Firm. The staff is very professional and nice.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
- D. Lombardo , Motor Vehicle Accident Client
I am completely satisfied with my settlement. I didn’t think you would be able to get anything more out of the liability carrier. While no insurance company has stellar reputations, theirs is particularly bad – probably the worst I’ve seen reviewing the Internet. That says a lot about your negotiating skills.
Thank you for your efforts on my behalf.

Who is considered an employee?
Under the Worker’s Compensation Act, an employee is any person who is under employment, contract for hire, or an apprenticeship, whether express or implied. This also includes foreign workers and minors who are lawfully or unlawfully employed as well as both full-time and part-time employees.
Subcontractors may also be covered under workers’ compensation. If a subcontractor does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, the owner or developer above them in the chain of employment may be held liable for workers’ compensation to the injured employee, as if they were the direct employer.
