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., and is one of the largest firms nationally representing civilian contract workers assisting U.S. military operations abroad.

In 1995, Mr. Barnett and Mr. Lerner transitioned the firm to only represent employees due to their professional belief that injured workers were not receiving appropriate representation regarding claims against insurance companies and employers. Since then, the focus of the firm has been on the rights of injured workers who possessed expatriate compensation claims, both in the U.S. and internationally.

The firm has subsequently litigated hundreds of cases throughout the United States and has filed briefs and appeals in numerous State and Federal jurisdictions. For more information regarding Barnett, Lerner, Karsen & Frankel, P.A., please visit their website at
