  • Brett A. Borah

    I have known Mr. Gorelick for over twenty years as a fellow workers' compensation attorney. I've seen him in practice and have sat through many of the seminars he's put on. This guy is good! If I needed a workers' comp attorney for my family or myself, Mr. Gorelick would be on my short list for the entire state of California. You simply cannot do any better than Mr. Gorelick.
