Joseph Raffanello focuses his practice on workers’ compensation defense. Mr. Raffanello has experience representing insurance carriers, self-insured entities and third-party administrators.

Prior to joining the team at Chartwell Law, Mr. Raffanello spent almost three years performing claimant’s work, where he litigated cases from start to finish at the southern New York hearing points. Mr. Raffanello negotiated over 400 settlements and built a strong rapport with judges, opposing counsel members, and insurance claims adjusters. Mr. Raffanello also spent time working on commercial litigation cases, focusing on construction and real-estate. He represented contractors and property owners both as plaintiffs and defendants. Due to his previous work experience, Mr. Raffanello is able to closely examine and understand the workings of commercial transaction, including insurance disputes, contract disputes and lien issues.

Mr. Raffanello’s personal and professional background provides him with unique insight, which allows him to approach cases from varying perspectives in order to identify and execute successful litigation strategies. Mr. Raffanello employs the use of his knowledge of claimant’s work and workers’ compensation, as well as his broader knowledge of law and commercial operations to effectively and efficiently reach successful outcomes.

While in law school, Mr. Raffanello worked in the Chambers of the Honorable Paul G. Feinman. He also assisted in the research and drafting of a World Bank Study regarding the use of Information Communication Technology for the promotion of human rights.

Outside of the office, Mr. Raffanello is extremely passionate about writing, playing and recording music. Growing up in the Long Island punk scene played an instrumental role in the development of his “do it yourself” work ethic and value for a just social, political and economic system.
