Meet Our Newest Addition

Welcome Jamie Meisenhelder!

Here at Minnillo & Jenkins we are excited to welcome the newest member of our team - Attorney Jamie Meisenhelder. Jamie's practice focuses exclusively on workers' compensation. Here are a few thoughts Jamie wanted to share with you.

"If you are injured at work, it is important to have someone on your side to help you navigate through the complicated and often frustrating Bureau of Workers' Compensation system. Ohio workers' compensation is a confusing and constantly changing area of law. The assistance of an experienced attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of your claim.

I have been practicing for 11 years and focused exclusively on workers' compensation. I am happy to be able to offer the clients of Minnillo & Jenkins experienced representation at every level of the workers' compensation system. Whether you are having trouble getting your medical bills paid, need new conditions added to your claim, or are not getting the compensation you deserve, I can help.

I look forward to continuing my successful representation of injured workers with the service and professionalism you have come to expect from Minnillo & Jenkins."

News You Can Use

Consumer Protection and Automatic Electronic Payments

The Electronic Funds Transfer Act (EFTA) is an important new law designed to protect you! It may apply if you have arranged to repay or purchase goods and services through pre-authorized electronic fund transfers (EFTs). The Act covers EFTs from most banks and limits liability for unauthorized transfers if you notify the bank promptly. If you arrange recurring regular electronic payments, the merchant or creditors must, among other things, obtain prior signed authorization and provide you with a copy. Creditors and merchants may not continue withdrawals after authorization is revoked. Remedies for violations include actual damages and statutory damages between $100 and $1000 plus attorney fees.

If you think your rights under the EFTA or other consumer protection laws may have been violated contact Chris Jenkins at cjenkins@minnillojenkins.com for a free consultation.
