After many years on the defense side, I am pleased to once again be litigating on behalf of injured workers at the California Workers' Compensation Appeals Board. In 2005, I closed my solo practice and spent several years working for large law firms on the defense side. Recently I teamed up with long term professional colleague Frank J. Mastroni and am accepting new clients with work-related injuries in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Several staff members speak Spanish as a native language.
Early evening and Saturday appointments are available.
Both Frank Mastroni and I enjoy proceeding to trial when the facts and evidence favor our client's claim. Our firm does not push our clients into early settlements but rather we litigate for medical treatment and indemnity benefits, trying cases when necessary.
For employers, our office provides comprehensive cost-effective representation on Labor Code 132a (retaliatory discrimination) and Serious and Willful Misconduct petitions.
Languages Spoken: English, Spanish
