My Law Practice is almost exclusively Workers' Compensation Defense, and I now concentrate on Defending Employers without Insurance. I have been practicing Workers' Compensation since 1992, and have been a Certified Specialist in the field since 1998. I can accept Uninsured Employers/LC 132a Discrimination matters on either Hourly or Fixed Fee basis, depending on the Client's preference.
Languages Spoken: English, Spanish
Hourly ($200-400/hour), Fixed (Sometimes), Retainer (Sometimes)
Cash, Check, Credit Card
I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with George on several matters as Co-Counsel / Opposing Counsel, and he is a worthy opponent. George is very bright, confident, competent and a tough lawyer. Any employer would be lucky to have him represent them!! He does not make it easy on his opponents, but he will be honest and truthful in his dealings. The best case results occur when both parties know what a case is potentially worth, and George does. I would highly recommend him!

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
George’s comment: “Co-Counsel wanted a 35% Fee from the WCAB for Employer Liability (First Party). I told her that only 15% would be awarded, but she did not believe me. I changed the 35% Fee to 15% (after notice) to get the document approved, which was ultimately awarded. The Civil Attorney received the entire awarded 15% fee, but made the State Bar Complaint. I was found to have altered the document without her permission, after WC witnesses confirmed a 35% fee was impossible, and I received no benefit.”
