Ioannis Athanasopoulos, an associate in the firm’s Newark office, counsels employers, insurers, and third-party administrators in workers’ compensation matters and defends them in litigation before the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation and in workers’ compensation vicinages throughout the state.

Ioannis’ practice includes answering, defending, and arguing motions for medical and temporary disability benefits; engaging in trials over compensability of benefits; and negotiating and settling claims during permanency. He draws on four years of experience as a workers’ compensation litigator for the largest provider of workers’ compensation insurance policies in New Jersey, and two years as general counsel to solar power and construction companies. In addition, his experience includes acting as managing attorney of his own private practice.

Ioannis earned his bachelor’s in Criminal Justice and Sociology, his master’s in Criminal Justice, and his law degree from Rutgers University. As an undergraduate he was the founder and president of the Criminal Justice Honor Society, president of the Pre-Law Society, and a recipient of the EOF Community Service Award. In law school he was the recipient of the C. Clyde Ferguson Law School Scholarship, community service chair of the Rutgers International Law Society, and a participant in the Eric R. Neisser Pro Bono Program. His education included serving as an intern to the Hon. Martin G. Cronin in the Superior Court of New Jersey Criminal Division, a student trainee in the U.S. Department of Defense, and an intern in the U.S. Department of Commerce. He was also a law intern and later a volunteer associate in the public service with the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General. Ioannis remains closely affiliated with Rutgers: He has served as an instructor of American Constitutional Law in the university’s pre-college program, delivered the undergraduate Honors College keynote commencement address, and received the university’s award for Excellence in Alumni Leadership.
