Angela M. Lorenz

Angela M. Lorenz is Of Counsel in Griesing Law, LLC’s ADR & Commercial Litigation practice group.

What do you focus on?

I focus my practice on workers’ compensation defense for a variety of institutional and governmental clients. I am also passionate about helping individuals navigate the often murky waters of family law by handling divorce, custody and equitable distribution matters in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

What do you see on the horizon?

Anticipated changes to healthcare and social insurance programs like the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid will result in a cost-shift from personal insurance to workers compensation insurance.   If these programs are greatly reduced or repealed, the likely result will be a surge in the uninsured population and an anticipated increase in workers compensation filings.  It is important for employers and workers compensation carriers to stay abreast of the changing healthcare landscape and remain committed to cost-containment and loss mitigation strategy.
