If you are a civilian employee working for the Department of Defense and you have sustained an injury on the job, you want a lawyer with a specific set of skills and knowledge to help protect your rights. As a federal worker, you are required to file any claim for workers compensation under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), the federal government’s equivalent to state workers’ compensation laws. The provisions of FECA differ significantly from similar state laws, so you want an attorney who fully understands the federal system and who has protected the rights of federal workers injured on the job.
At the office of Uliase & Uliase, in Haddon Heights, New Jersey, both of our lawyers have been in practice for more than 28 years, representing clients throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and New York. Attorney Tom Uliase has focused his career on the needs of injured federal employees. His wife Carolyn has dedicated her practice to these types of claims for many years. We are among a very small number of lawyers nationwide who concentrate on the needs of injured federal workers. We have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the federal compensation systems. We will help you take the right measures to protect your interests and get the benefits you need in a federal workers’ compensation claim .

- Retail employees, including workers at convenience stores, base exchanges and food services
- Administrative personnel
- Maintenance Workers
Our lawyers take all types of injury claims on behalf of Department of Defense workers, such as back or neck injury, joint injury, foot or hand trauma, and repetitive stress injury. We handle claims based on slips and falls, motor vehicle accidents and other incidences of negligence or carelessness.
We will protect your rights at any stage of a workplace injury claim, whether you have just sustained an injury and need assistance filing your initial claim for losses, or your application for benefits has been denied.
We handle most cases on a contingency basis, only charging attorney fees if we recover compensation for you. We do not bill more than 20% of your award as a contingency fee.
