$13.2 MILLION IS THE LARGEST SETTLEMENT IN CALIFORNIA’S WORK COMP HISTORY, WHICH I SETTLED, IN ADDITION TO MORE THAN 30 7-FIGURE SETTLEMENTS OVER THE PAST 29-YEARS. WHEN HIRING A LAWYER, LOOK AT THEIR SETTLEMENT RESULTS. YOUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT.

$13.2 Million is the Largest Settlement in California Work Comp History, which I settled, in addition to more than 30 7-Figure settlements over the past 29-years. When hiring a Lawyer, look at their settlement results. Your Future Depends on it.

I am the managing partner at Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP (HRO) and have served as general counsel to the San Diego Riptide, a former AF2 Arena Football Team, as well as providing legal counsel to the Toronto Blue Jays and the former Montreal Expos regarding workers' compensation claims.

I represent clients throughout California and across the US for matters involving serious injuries both on and off the job.

Through creativity, hard work and hiring the top experts in their fields, I have settled some of the largest workers' compensation cases in the State of California.  What makes a number of these cases so unique, is that their previous attorneys were recommending 5-figure settlements, and I eventually turned them into 7-figure settlements.

I have had the priviledge to serve as class counsel in several Class Actions and served as an Executive Committee Member in a Multi-District Litigation Class Action against Apple, Inc.  I was also interviewed by ABC News regarding this class action.  

In January of 2018, I received the Distinguished Lawyer Designation from the Expert Network, which is only given to the Top 3% of Lawyers in the U.S.

In September of 2012, l was interviewed by THE SUIT magazine on Class Actions.  

In 2011, I was interviewed by NBC News regarding the September 8, 2011 Southwestern Blackout.

In 2011, my peers selected me as a Semi-Finalist for Top Attorneys (Labor/Employment), which was published by The Daily Transcript.

About the firm, Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP ("HRO") is a full service law firm representing Labor Unions and Union Members throughout California.  

In 2004, the Firm was awarded the Certificate of Honor from UFCW, Local 135 in recognition of leadership in the time of crisis, withstanding all odds and elements to fight and sacrifice for the highest standards of all working class people.

In 1999, HRO was honored by the Asia-Pacific Legal 500 as being named in its Legal 500 Series, as being one of the top law firms in San Diego for Labour and Employment.

I am committed to providing the very best legal representation.  I do this by knowing the law; developing a specific game plan for your claim; knowing the experts; keeping you informed about your case; by maintaining an excellent reputation with the Judges, who will decide your case; and by willing to take your case to the ends of the earth to deliver the benefits and results that we have discussed throughout your case.

Remember, Results are Important.  

Choose Wisely!

Amazing Lawyer
Michael Rott is an Amazing lawyer. For 3 1/2 years my previous lawyer did nothing for me. I was living in my sister’s garage and receiving no money. Within 6 months of hiring Mr. Rott, my case was accepted, I received 3 1/2 years of retroactive temporary disability payments, a $13,000 bed, a $15,000 massage chair, a $99,000 van, and 2-caregivers for 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Within 9-months, Mr. Rott settled my case for $5.2Million Dollars. Sounds too good to be true? I thought so, but everything Mr. Rott promised came true. Hire this amazing lawyer. You will be happy you did.

Absolutely amazing!
I can’t begin to thank Michael and his amazing staff for everything they’ve done for our family. My husband suffered a horrific accident and after being turned down by multiple firms, Michael took our case. Our lives have completely changed for the better. He was always a phone call away whenever I needed him and explained everything to make sure we always knew exactly what was going on. He walked us through every phase of the case, My husband and our family were always his main priority, he’s fought for us and continues to do so and for that I will forever be grateful.

Excellent Lawyer
I had a brain injury on 2015 and I hired a lawyer that didn't try to get me treatment at all and wanted to settle for 600k. A year later I met Michael Rott and he promised me my treatment and a better settlement. Just as promised, he got all treatment I needed, transportation, homecare and an electric wheelchair. We always had great and fast communication. He is such a nice person, I'll be forever thankful he settled my case for 2 million including a life pension. Don't think twice to hire him he will get you every penny your case is worth. I definitely recommend him top lawyer in San Diego for worker's compensation..

An Unbelievable Lawyer and an Unbelievable Result!
5-lawyers turned down my husbands catastrophic work comp case. It is a miracle that Attorney, Michael Rott took on this case. The case was denied. The general contractor told his insurance company that he didn't know anything about my husbands employment; didn't know anything about my husbands injury; and that he didn't even know anything about the construction job. I can genuinely tell you that Mr. Rott did what other lawyers were unable to do. Mr. Rott proved that this general contractor was responsible for my husbands injuries which have left him bed-bound and in a vegetative state. After 3-depositions and several Court hearings, Mr. Rott was able to settle my husbands case for $5 Million Dollars which will then be structured into nearly double that amount of money. Thanks to Mr. Rott's vision and unbelievable lawyering, my husbands medical care will be taken care of for the rest of his life; and my children and I will no longer worry about money.

Michael gets results!
As soon as I hired Michael, things started to move forward with my workers comp case. He found me two doctors, got me an MRI -first imagining done on me since accident! -, got me 24/7 caregiving, a walker and a wheelchair, and, above all, got my case moving forward until settlement. Moreover, he made himself available for any questions I had. Michael is excellent at what he does! He gets results. I am grateful to him for the time, work, efficiency, and determination he invested in my case and, ultimately, in my wellbeing. I absolutely recommend him. Thank you so so much, Michael!

$2.5 million
I originally hired the hack lawyers Beach Cities Legal. After six months of my claim being denied and complete lack of care I fired them and hired Mr Rott. Quickly my claim was accepted and I got the medical attention I needed. I had Mr Rotts cell phone number and he always answered my calls. He attended most of my Dr appointments and was very active in my care. I never saw the inside of a courtroom. He brought me from being denied to a $2.5 million settlement. I can’t recommend him and his staff enough.

Works hard for his clients!
My case was not a simple one. The attorneys I had worked with previously seemed content with the situation I was in, but I was not. I found Michael through a search on this website and I am grateful I did. Within a short time, I had treatment I had not been able to get in years and things began moving forward with my case again. Each person in his office whom I have had contact with has been polite, knowledgeable and helpful. Would most definitely recommend him.

Absolutely amazing
Michael and his team were absolutely fantastic. Very responsive to anything that was needed and always made himself available to any family member that had any questions in regards to our case. He was also very caring, continually concerned about the well being of his client and really wanting to help out in anyway possible. We couldn't ask for anything more and would absolutely recomend him and his team to anyone that asked.

Michael rott the greatest attorney " God" when had
When previously had a attorney Joshua Teperson which was a nightmare cussing at my husband that was paralized and messed our case up. We got a referrel from my brother Louie which was the best thang we could of accepted . Our first accounter was with Orcelia the most perfessional senior pare legal to Micheal rott. She was caring and family oriented. We were told by our old attorney that no other attorney would accept our case. But Orcelia was speaking on speaker phone and mr rott owner of the business was listening. Right away mr rott said he'll take our case. He take castrospic cases. He told use that the previous attorney gutted our cases settling for pennies on the dollars. Mr. Rott and and his college and Orcelia worked night and day and fought for my husband. The put there life on hold for this case. They accepted cases all hours of the night. Our case was hard with the insurance attorney but our attorneys team was always steps ahead of the case, I highly recommend this attorney. He saved my husband life and we are so grateful for the team. There like family to us much love. My option Mr. Rott needs to be the next president he fights for what's right.

A 5-Star Lawyer
Mr. Rott worked with lightening speed to settle my case for nearly $2,000,000.00 more than my first lawyer was willing to settle for. I am so thankful that I fired Phil and hired Mr. Rott. Mr. Rott knew how to fix the problems created by my first attorney. From the very beginning, Mr. Rott explained his plan for my case and more than delivered on what he said he could do for me. Mr. Rott did in 2-weeks what my first lawyer could not do in almost 2-years. Thank you Mr. Rott!

Work Comp
My case was a nightmare! It put a lot of stress on my family, at no fault of Mr. Rott. I look back at the beginning of this case. It literally was an insult! I look at the end, and Mr. Rott did not make very much on me considering the time he put in and my constant vexatious behavior towards him. This was a family nightmare that lasted about a year and a half that ended at more than a fair amount of a case of this type. I got my life back after the (bad guys) were beat up by M. Rott. The (bad guys) were dictating my life, which I strongly opposed! I firmly believe in my heart no more could have been done by Mr. Rott. My family is tremendously thankful that this dictating of my life is over. Thank You

Worker's Compensation Case
Michael I want to begin with thanking you for all your hard work and dedication that went into our WC case. This case was Very Complex and required the fine tuned skill's of a Hardened Gladiator. I whole heartily endorse your firm, as it was a team effort from start to finish. We are very pleased with the outcome of this case, and never could have achieved this Justice without you or HRO. Thank You, Colleen R. Moorhead

Michael Rott was my work comp attorney, he and his Paralegal Arcelia Huetado were great at handling my case and making sure they did what was best for me including getting me an awesome settlement and making sure they took the time to explain everything to me before I signed anything. They always took the time to answer my questions and concerns. We were able to settle my case without having to go to court. I definitiley recommend Michael Rott.

Thank God for Michael Rott! I'm eternally in his debt for his excellent work on my case.
The legal system is a mess without compassion or justice for injured victims. I hope to never deal with it again. But the only reason I finally made my way out of the woods is that I found a great lawyer (Mr. Rott) to represent me. As a Christian, I believe in a spiritual order of things, in the power of prayer and that blessings eventual come to those who have faith. I believe that my prayers were answered in the form of Mr. Rott's legal work, a great team of doctors and physical therapy. Some pain remains from my injury. But I am on the way toward getting my life back. Thank you, Mr. Rott.

Great Firm, Great Team. GREAT Settlement!
I was looking to help a friend embroiled in a workers comp case. She had been going in circles for two years and was finally offered a crappy settlement. The insurance company had done their job well - she was almost too tired to fight anymore. I then began researching attorneys on AVVO, Yelp, etc. I came across the firm of Hiden, Rott and Oertle. They specialize in Work Comp cases, have an expertise in Personal Injury cases and have significant experience working with Labor Unions. Check, check and check. I called Michael Rott and received a call back within an hour. Nice! We discussed the case and within that one call I knew I had found the right firm. Michael has decades of experience in this area and knows of almost every doctor who may be involved - this is beyond helpful. Michael also has positive relationships with the judges and insurance companies. This is worth it's weight in gold, literally. Then there is Jonathan Ring, the man behind the curtain. He is the quite fellow present in the meetings with Michael. He is also the guy who will comb through every line of every report ever written on your case and find the loopholes. If there is a gap, large or small, this guy will find it. Due to Michaels reputation and relationships, combined with Jonathon's laser focus, my friends settlement was DOUBLED from $150,000 to $300,000 in just 3 months. I highly recommend this firm for any work comp cases. And, I strongly suggest that you contact them early in your case as my friend went through 2 years of hell before hiring them. Also, if you have a personal injury case there are statutes of limitation so time is of the essence.
