Kestenbaum Law Firm

The Kestenbaum Law Firm is dedicated to the defense of workers’ compensation claims, representing employers, their carriers and third–party administrators throughout the entire state of North Carolina.

The Firm is "AV" rated by the prestigious Martindale–Hubbell Law Directory, the highest rating available to law firms.

The Kestenbaum Law Firm understands that different organizations vary in their approaches to doing business, risk management, and managing claims. The Firm accommodates the specific needs of each client. We work closely with our clients to assure informed decision making, leading to an agreed upon strategy and positive outcome.

The Firm is dedicated to providing high quality and cost–effective services in a timely manner. We take a team approach to managing and litigating files with our clients.

Our goal is to solve our clients’ problems as quickly and favorably as possible while keeping defense costs low. We use our time, skills and experience to promptly resolve contested cases through negotiation and mediation. In those cases that cannot be resolved by negotiation and mediation, we aggressively and effectively defend out clients before the Industrial Commission and appellate courts.

We provide ongoing education and general advice to our clients without charge. This includes assisting our clients in developing workplace practices and policies to manage their claims in–house to avert the involvement of third parties. We provide our clients with the risk management tools needed to avoid litigation in the first instance.

Our work ethic and integrity has earned us a solid and credible reputation among the plaintiffs’ bar and the North Carolina Industrial Commission.

You can expect excellent service from our small firm. We are accessible to you most all of the time so you get the time, attention and experience you need, when you need it.
