I joined this firm in 1989 and focus my practice
exclusively on workers' compensation cases. I actively fight for
the rights of California and Bay Area working men and women; I am a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law, and have lectured widely on the subject.
I pride myself for being an active member of the California Applicant Attorneys' Association (CAAA), a statewide association of attorneys representing injured
workers. I have served as the past president of CAAA and am a current
member of the Board of Governors, the current Chair of the Policy
Steering Committee, and the founder of the San Francisco chapter. Our work at CAAA has gone miles in making the lives of workers who suffer work-related injuries and illnesses much better.
I am very proud of receiving an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the national directory of lawyers.
This is the highest possible rating an attorney can receive, indicating
that my peers rank me at the highest levels of professionalism and
