Mr. Katkin was a founding partner of the New York general practice law firm of Angiuli Katkin & Gentile, LLP where in 1988 he managed and directed the firm’s workers’ compensation, Social Security disability and employment law practices and assisted in managing the personal injury practice.

Having devoted thirty years to the practice of Workers’ Compensation Law he has represented virtually every entity involved in such claims including individuals, small and large businesses, self-insured employers, carriers, third party administrators, state agencies, uninsured employers and medical providers from the initial phases of the claim through the appeals level. He is noted for having litigated multiple complex occupational disease claims including many which emanated from the World Trade Center Disaster.
