Patriot Placements will empower veterans and their spouses by successfully converting their military proficiencies into private-sector professions.

About Barnett, Lerner, Karsen & Frankel, P.A.:

Barnett, Lerner, Karsen & Frankel, P.A. was founded in 1995 by David C. Barnett, Esq., and Barry R. Lerner, Esq. Previously, both attorneys handled claims representing employers and carriers as well as employees who suffered work related injuries.

In 1995, Mr. Barnett and Mr. Lerner decided to create the law firm of Barnett, Lerner, Karsen & Frankel, P.A. to only represent employees because they did not believe that injured workers were receiving appropriate representation regarding claims against insurance companies and employers. As such, since 1995, the focus of the firm has been on the rights of injured workers, both in the U.S. and internationally, with expatriate compensation claims. Mr. Barnett and Mr. Lerner have litigated hundreds of cases throughout the United States and have filed briefs and appeals in numerous state and federal jurisdictions.
