For 36 years as an attorney, Howard Stevens has focused on Worker's Compensation and related litigation. He is certified as a specialist in Workers' Compensation by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. He represents clients in all types and sizes of cases before the Workers' Compensation Appeals Boards in San Diego, Orange County and Long Beach, from orthopedic injuries to heart problems, from accidents to toxic exposures, from hearing loss caused by a noisy workplace to industrially related deaths.
We could spend a lot of time and space tooting our horn about articles he has published, seminars he has presented, and the like, but what you really need to know is what we may be able to do for you. Aside from a thorough understanding of the ever-changing law and administrative rules that apply to Workers' Compensation, Mr. Stevens knows how adjusters and insurance companies think. In short, with prior experience in working for employers and carriers, he knows where the benefits are buried, and how to pry them loose.
If you have been injured as a result of your work and would like more information about getting the medical treatment and disability payments to which you may be entitled, please call us. No obligation. It costs you nothing unless and until we recover benefits. All costs including medical examinations are paid by the employer in most cases.
