Licensed Workers’ Compensation Representative
I was born in Rochester, New York. I earned a Bachelor’s degree from Nazareth College (1999). I am a proud graduate of the Aquinas Institute. I have more than 20 years of experience in the legal field which includes employment at two prominent Rochester law firms (Nixon Peabody, LLP & Faraci Lange, LLP). I earned my license as a Workers Compensation Representative in 2005.
What is a LCR?
LCR means licensed compensation representative. I earned the LCR by passing a rigorous written examination and otherwise demonstrating my proficiency in workers’ compensation (“WC”), disability benefits law, volunteer ambulance workers’ benefits law and volunteer firefighter’s benefits law. I know the law and related regulations extremely well. I am one of less than 100 people across our State who has earned this prestigious license. My performance as a LCR is monitored regularly by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board (“WCB”) to insure that I continue my outstanding advocacy for our clients.
What I do for Clients
I joined Modica & Associates during October of 2010. I appear at hearings and represent injured workers before the WCB in the full capacity of a lawyer. I am a member of the Monroe County Bar Association. I also work closely with prominent personal injury attorneys to address the complex interplay between WC and related personal injury cases. I take great pride—and invest great time—in educating our clients about the WC system.
We are generous and community oriented. We give back in many ways, including donating our time (e.g., handling cases pro bono), talent (e.g., speaking to community groups) and treasure (e.g., giving and raising funds for worthy organizations).

I am married to Mark. We live in Irondequoit with our two daughters Amelia and Olivia.
My non-law passions include traveling and camping with my family, watching my daughters play soccer, biking, hiking, walking, attending local sporting events and spending time with my two dogs.
