Helped me get the best settlement!!
Mr. Gurvey helped me on my workers compensation case when I hurt my back at work. The insurance company tried to play games and deny my medical treatment and case. Mr. Gurvey was aggressive and would not let them get away with any non-sense. When it came time to settling my case, I was very happy with the results! He went above and beyond for me and for that, my family and I will be forever grateful for all his hard work and efforts. I would recommend and refer Mr. Gurvey to any of my friends or family who has a workers comp case. He's seriously the best!

"Alan is an amazing advocate, not only for his clients, but for injured workers across the state of California. He volunteers countless hours putting together the best educational programs for legal practitioners, as well as for doctors, for the California Applicants' Attorney's Association, for which he is a long-time member of the Board of Directors. Alan is an incredibly smart attorney and has shared his legal insights on numerous legal panels over the years. I became acquainted with Alan from my participation in the organization and remain impressed by his level of passion and commitment to the practice of law. Any client would be well-served by Alan and would be lucky to have him as their attorney. It is with full confidence that I proudly endorse Alan Gurvey."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly. Alan and I serve together on the Board of Directors of the statewide workers' compensation bar association of attorneys for injured workers, California Applicants' Attorneys Association, and I know of few, if any, applicants' attorneys who are more passionate, zealous, and aggressive in their fight for the rights and benefits of injured workers, than Alan. Especially today, when workers' compensation laws in California and across the nation, are increasingly slanted in favor of employers and insurance companies, we need more people like Alan to fight the good fight! His knowledge of work comp. laws, and his skills as a litigator, are outstanding, and would make him a great asset to any injured worker looking for qualified, competent, and caring representation."
