About Anna

Learn Anna’s areas of practice.

I have been fighting for the rights of injured workers at the law firm of Cantrell Green since 2000.  


For two years, I served as the Chair of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Long Beach Bar Association. I am also a member of the California Applicant Attorneys Association. I represents injured workers - including safety officers - in workers’ compensation claims. Each case is given the utmost attention it deservs to obtain the maximum benefits for which each client qualifies.


I have also volunteered at the Legal Aid in Orange County, the office of the Orange County Public Defender, the West Covina Courthouse (formerly Citrus Municipal Court), and the Los Angeles Superior Court in Pomona.


Your first consultation is always free - and in most cases there is no fee upfront until we win for you.

Genuinely Kind, Charismatic, and Professional! Thank You Anna!
My father has been retired for more than five years and he failed to resolve his worker's compensation case. He is the kind of person who will ignore taking care of a situation if he does not know how to resolve it. This is why I always have to take those situations in my own hands so he does not suffer the consequences. Long story short, I did not know where to turn when he received legal paperwork in the mail regarding his case. I searched online and found the Law Offices of Cantrell Green. They were very polite on the phone and I had a free consultation scheduled within a week. My father and I arrived to the consultation and met with workers compensation attorney, Anna Batanero. Ms Batanero was very kind and very patient with my father, which I know can be painful sometimes. I understand my father's case more than he does and I was very pleased with the way she asked him specific questions which got him to the point very quickly. Ms. Batanero spent a significant time with us ensuring she understood his case. She went through his paperwork and noted the areas that needed to be addressed. She provided us great advise on steps to take in order to resolve the case correctly. She was very impressive and had legal resources readily available to show us. After the consultation, I realized she spent all that time with us knowing she would not be compensated as the case did not require her to represent us. We left her office, she walked us out and said "thanks for taking care of your dad." I replied "thanks for helping my dad." I felt compelled to at least express what a great person she was and how she spent time out of her day to help someone and not expect anything in return. This is hard to come by in today's word. I enjoy helping others and have a career which allows me to do so. I'm glad there are still some people like Anna out there paying it forward.

Retired Union Rep
After more than 20 years of referring members who were injured on the job to Cantrelle and Green, I had to call on them for my own Disability Appeal. Anna Batanero worked from the beginning to assure me I could prevail, I could relax, and trust her to get me through the process. She kept saying I could be struck dumb and she would get me through the hearing, and she did just that! I cannot say enough about all she learned about aneurysms and endoleaks to argue my case, her tenacity against their medical professional, and her attention to all the little details that made the difference in my appeal. This woman knows the system and the process, she plans for contingencies, and she fights like a lioness provoked, and you'll be glad she's on your side. Even before seeing her fight for me, I recommended Anna to a couple other people. She is such a competent professional with a wealth of knowledge and lots of patience for her clients.

An amazing Social Security Attorney
I had become injured at work back in 2006 while teaching nursing and I had hired Juliana Guerriero of Cantrell and Green in Long Beach, CA. As my case moved forward my Doctors made the determination that due to the combination of cumulative back trauma and the sudden injury I suffered while teaching clinicals I would not be able to continue in the 26 year career I loved. My other situation that compounded this experience was that I had been also diagnosed with a Bipolar Disorder among a few other psychiatric disorders and I had spent years in therapy and in psychiatrist's offices. I had literally been on every medication there was with not much succcess. Juliana recommended my meeting with Anna as it was recommended that I apply for Social Security Disability. Anna suggested I include my psychiatric diagnoses as 40% of SSDI cases are dismissed on the first try. I retained Anna and she guided me through the process of filling out the paperwork and preparing the documentation. Because of Anna's efforts my case was approved within four months. AND it was approved on the very first submission of my paperwork Anna advised me that if I had just applied due to the back injury it would have most likely been denied out of hand. Not only that, but I was approved with my case not being revisited until the last tier of 5-7 years. A few months ago I was advised by the court that my case was being revisited, but a few days later was advised by Anna's secretary that they chose not to revisit it after all. Also Anna charged me a very fair price for her work and got me the best possible outcome. If you need an extremely competent SSDI Attorney, Anna is your woman. There were so many horror stories of lawyer incompetence or them not staying in touch with their clients, and for me this was just not the case. I had the best experience with Anna and would recommend her 100%. She always kept me abreast of my case and worked very hard to win a positive outcome for me.

Great attorney for my workers comp case
I have had attorneys before but am super impressed with this lady! I never have any delays or unanswered questions thru my case. Its been 5 years represented by her and the conclusion is very satisfying. If you need an attorney, i strongly recommend this person and her staff. 5 years is a long time to wonder what will come of it, so having a piece of mind on who is protecting you to me was very significant.
