” I remember remarking to my legal  assistant, Miranda  Chiu, who is now with the Department of Labor in Washington D.C., that “we’re not in Kansas  anymore”.

“Since then, my practice in this area  has taken me all over the country where I have worked with many  claims professionals and have met skilled attorneys who  represent both claimants and carriers

I have likewise  met administrative law judges in the Office of Administrative Law Judges and Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs personnel from every  office in both of those Department of Labor  branches.

My travels have even taken me out of  the country where I have been introduced to claims representatives in  Dubai and a lawyer and claimants in South Korea.  This is not untypical for those of us who do this kind of work these days. While there are many  people in the Department of Labor who make the system work, special mention should be made of one man who, until very recently, along with his  staff, was responsible for administering the vast majority of claims  filed under this act.  Richard V. Robilotti, District Director in New  York City, can best be described as the engine that drives this  machine.”
