Summary

I was born in North Carolina and raised in Ocala, Florida. My given name is William, but I go by “Billy.” After graduating from high school, I did not immediately go to law school, but instead I worked at a variety of blue collar and white collar jobs. I worked as a carpenter and as an iron worker. I worked as a public school teacher. I worked as a yellow taxi driver in New York City. I know what it is like to do hard blue collar work for low pay and no benefits.In the 1980's I decided to go to law school and I graduated from The University of Florida College of Law in 1988. After graduation, I worked for a firm called Three Rivers Legal Services representing poor people in civil cases such as divorces, custody cases and landlord/tenant disputes. In 1990, I began practicing Florida Workers’ Compensation Law. I have practiced workers’ comp law and Social Security Disability law ever since then to the present date and continuing.“ An individual who is injured at work is immediately at a disadvantage in dealing with the workers’ comp system. She has to deal with workers’ comp insurance company people who have more knowledge about workers’ comp law than she does. The goal of the insurance company is to save money on cases which frequently causes injured workers’ to not get the medical care or money benefits they need and are entitled to. What we can do is assist our clients. We guide our clients through the workers’ comp system and ultimately help them negotiate a settlement to give them a nest egg until they are able to return to work. If they cannot return to work, we can still negotiate a settlement for them and then assist them in a claim for Social Security Disability benefits. I recommend getting a lawyer early after you have been injured. We will treat you like a real person with dignity and respect and we will work in your best interest.” Billy McLean
