Mission

Our Mission at Akpalu & Associates is to fight hard for compensation and medical treatment for injured and disabled workers. Having represented injured claimants since 2000 and having also represented inusurance carriers, John Akpalu is well suited to to help you get the most money you deserve. We believe that workers are the backbone of the economy and ought to be treated fairly when they become disabled and are unable to work. We work with you to obtain all necessary medical reports and refer you to compensation and disability doctors. We also obtain your union and hospital records and prepare you for hearings before the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board and the Social Security Administration.

We also practice in the areas of Immigration – including complex immigration cases. As immigrants, we are passionate about immigration issues. We have represented and obtained green cards and work permits for many immigrants. We file all immigrant and non-immigrant visa petitions and also represent you in deportation and/or removal proceedings making sure we explore all avenues of relief for you.
