About Schotter Millican, LLP
New York City’s Trusted Workers’ Compensation Law Firm
Founded in 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Schotter Millican comprises a team of leading New York City workers’ compensation attorneys. Our attorneys have been serving the local communities for years and are known for their longstanding commitment to injured New York workers, as well as their established connections with local labor and transport unions. Our firm is recognized for our dedication to our clients and our willingness to take on even the toughest and most complex of cases.
Our staff consists of renowned industry experts, including licensed Workers’ Compensation Board representatives, as well as an entire team of videographers who provide complimentary video services to all clients undergoing independent medical examinations (IMEs). This is incredibly important, as many insurance companies use IMEs to dispute employees’ claims or even deny benefits.
At Schotter Millican, we take our time to review each new case, whether it is brand new or has been open for years, in order to make sure we catch every opportunity to maximize your monetary recovery and get you the medical treatment you need with minimal hassle. We are different—and on purpose. We treat our clients like family, which is why we grow our business primarily by word-of-mouth referrals.

Why Choose Schotter Millican?
Our team is driven by a passion for helping injured workers understand and protect their rights. We strive to not only provide the aggressive legal representation injured workers need but also serve as an educational resource they can trust. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and can provide detailed information specific to your case. Even if you choose not to work with our firm, we want to make sure that you are as informed as possible so that you can make empowered decisions about your workers’ compensation claim, as well as your health and, by extension, your future.
We are proudly pro-worker and pro-labor. If you have been injured on the job, or if you were diagnosed with a work-related medical condition, we encourage you to reach out to our team right away so that we can immediately begin gathering evidence, protecting your rights, and advocating for your maximum recovery. It is critical that you act quickly—if you wait too long to notify your employer about your injury or fail to file a lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations, you may lose your right to recover benefits under the New York workers’ compensation system.
