About me

I represent injured workers and their families in workers compensation claims I enjoy repesenting people individually against business and insurance entities no matter what the odds are or how big the adversary is. Representing injured workers is a rewarding field even know it is an uphill  battle most of the time.

I have been in the Worker's Compensation and personal injury field since 1991. Since 1997 I have exclusively represented workers compensation cases for injured workers.

Since 2005, I have gone to our state capital in Sacramento to advocate for the rights of California injured workers every year. I talk every year with legislators regarding the plight of injured workers and the abysmal state of their benefits system.
