Summary

James T. Haadsma has practiced with the McCroskey Law since August, 1987. He specializes in representing injured workers in workers’ disability compensation disputes before the Michigan Workers’ Compensation Agency, and in representing injured workers before the Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. Mr. Haadsma also occasionally represents a partially disabled employee in controversies with employers under the Americans with Disabilities Act/Michigan Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act. He represents clients from Washtenaw to Berrien Counties, but predominantly in Calhoun County.

Before joining the McCroskey firm in August, 1987, Mr. Haadsma practiced with the Muskegon office of Legal Aid of Western Michigan, between May, 1984, and August, 1987. He then undertook successful Federal court challenges to a City of Muskegon ordinance, and to municipal mis-management of public housing programs, among other impact litigation advocacy. Mr. Haadsma continues to represent workers who otherwise could not afford an attorney by his participation in the Legal Services of South Central Michigan’s pro bono panel program.
