Workers’ Compensation

There is no reason that you should suffer in silence when I am on your side, helping to deliver the results you deserve. For more than 27 years I have helped clients in the Montgomery County area overcome procedural obstacles and succeed with their Pennsylvania workers’ compensation claim. In a difficult time, an experienced lawyer can make a substantial difference when you need it most. I can maximize your chances whether you are filing an initial claim or defending a petition to terminate or reduce your benefits. You can count on me because I am:

Established: I have been voted Montgomery County’s Best Attorney multiple times, most recently in 2017. I am AV rated (the highest possible rating) by the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell law directory. Avvo, a national legal directory, ranks me as a “10” amongst my peers. Most importantly, I am a certified workers’ compensation specialist, a designation  earned by only a select number of Pennsylvania attorneys.

Knowledgeable: I concentrate in a limited area which allows me to keep up with changes in workers’ compensation law  in Pennsylvania. I regularly attend  continuing legal education seminars. In addition, I lecture on workers’ compensation to fellow attorneys and the community.

Passionate in Finding Successful Resolutions: I understand the importance of a successful  outcome. That’s why I seek creative ways to win cases. From the initial free consultation to the final resolution, I communicate each step along the way so that my clients understand the development of their cases.

Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law is not always smooth sailing. I can streamline the process of getting you the medical treatment and money you deserve, protect your rights and save you from costly litigation. From medical care, to lost wages, to occupational diseases, to death benefits, I guide my clients through complex processes on the path to obtaining rightful benefits.



Mr. Monaghan was a very helpful and supportive attorney who exhibited a professional and organized firm. He was wonderful and now my worries are gone. The process was smooth and my stress level has decreased. I highly recommend anyone to use Mr. Monaghan as an attorney to help with their needs.


I would recommend Attorney Monaghan to anyone seeking excellent legal representation. He was very informative and eased any anxiety I was having with the process. His assistant Linda is a great part of his team. He was always available for questions whenever I had them. Perfect 10.


Extremely knowledgeable and professional. Jim ensured that I was well informed and supported at each step. Excellent communication and correspondence throughout the process. I felt very safe being represented by Jim.


Jim was very helpful with my workers’ comp case. He really sped up the process in which the insurance company needed to do. Also, he has a calming, reassuring aspect of his character that honestly I wish all lawyers would have.


Jim was awesome! Very patient and kept me informed of everything that was going and what was going to happen. I would recommend him to anyone who needs lawyer services.
