About me

I truly enjoy teaching and helping people. After college, I taught seventh grade science to children in a low-income area of Los Angeles. It was difficult but incredibly satisfying. I wanted the same experience as an attorney. And while what I do now is also tough--because corporations (the bad ones) go to great lengths and expend a lot of money to deny or cover up their wrongs--every effort is worth the satisfaction of securing some sense of justice for my clients.


But I am only the person I am today because of the tremendous support I receive from my family and friends. I could not effectively represent my clients without being able to empathize with them over the often horrific losses they have suffered. And realizing how devastated I would be if the actions of another led to great harm to my wife, son, daughter, brother, sister or parents, well, it helps me greatly when battling for my clients' rights.

  • Gabriel V Kory

    Elder abuse and neglect cases are factually and legally complex. This area of practice demands a keen understanding of the nursing home industry, its regulations, as well as medical issues that are unique to our elderly population. Fred understands the industry charged with protecting our elderly population as well as the medicine – he does an excellent job for his clients. If a potential client, or their family, comes to see me and I cannot accept the case due to a conflict, or my current active case load, I highly recommend Fred and his firm.
