March 21, 2012

Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer Michael G. Dryden, of the Pennsylvania labor union and employment law firm Willig, Williams & Davidson, presented “Cancer Presumption / Workers Compensation and You” to volunteer firefighters and other emergency responders during the Fireman’s Legislative Federation of Pennsylvania quarterly meeting in March.

The Fireman’s Legislative Federation seminar was held at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Camp Hill, Pa., free of charge to Pennsylvania emergency responders.
