Passionate
My husband passed from Covid which he contracted at a business Conference. In California, if a spouse passes due to a Worker’s Compensation injury… The surviving spouse receives $250,000 from the board if the spouse makes less than 30,000 a year! I did not meet the income requirement And therefore did not automatically receive the death benefit. Attorney More negotiated a settlement with the insurance company's attorney. Without Attorney More I would’ve received nothing. Attorney More is a very passionate and considerate man who stands up and fights for what is right!

5 Star Review
A Powerful Legal Team: Firm Attorney’s Bentley and More: I was referred to the Law Firm Bentley and More, by a partnered Attorney who could no longer handle my personal injury case, because he was retiring. I knew immediately after being interviewed by Attorney Keith More, and AttorneyAllegra Rineer, that this team would be masterful in their negotiations, compromise, and legal skills with the Defense Attorney. I am extremely satisfied with the financial outward outcome of my case, which these Attorney’s More, and Rineer fought hard for. I received direct written documentation, and telephonic communication from these Attorney’s as my personal injury case continued on a as needed basis, till my personal injury consummated. I received sound legal consultation from these Attorney’s. Attorney Keith More, and Allegra Rineer were present at my mediation with sound legal advice, before my mediation began to inform me responsibly what my award outcome could possibly be. Attorney Keith More, and Attorney Allegra Rineer are a Masterful Legal Team !We my family will always be grateful to these Attorney’s for the welcoming professionalism , and congenial manner in which they performed. I will highly recommend Attorney Keith More, and Attorney Allegra Rineer to any individual who suffers a personal injury case. Attorney’s Keith More, and Allegra Rineer are personal injury Powerhouse Attorneys! Respectfully Submitted Robert Gonzales Retired Federal Senior Officer Law Enforcement

Keith & his team are phenomenal...could not ask for more!
We were referred by another attorney who did not handle workers comp clams. From our first meeting we knew we were in the right hands. They handled our every need and took care of our claim at every angle. The team worked together to make sure we were in great hands. Their knowledge, kindness, genuine concern for us and our family was so important to us. We met them at such a low place and they purposefully made sure we knew we would be taken care of. The entire team (Keith, Evan, Greg & Debi C.) was phenomenal and we are so happy to have them in our corner fighting for us. I can’t express how pleased I am with Keith….I don’t have there right words but I am so glad we chose him to be our attorney.

Best catastrophic injury Workers Comp Attoney
I have been a client of Bentley and More for 7 years now. They have been a true blessing to me since my workers compensation accident in 2012. I suffered an amputation at work which left me and my family in limbo and worried about our future. I was referred to Keith More from another highly respected attorney that told me about how Mr. More was one of the best and most respected workers compensation attorneys in California. This was evident when I noticed all the awards and titles he had received when we first meet. He set me up with the resources and all the best doctors to handle my catastrophic case. After a couple of years into my recovery I started to have problems with denials for treatment by the insurance company. Mr. More diligently resolved the denials by challenging the insurance company in appeals court, and won every decision! Not only did I receive the treatment I needed but was also referred to the best doctors and specialists in Southern California. The insurance company always wanted to send me to their in-house doctors that were overbooked and didn't spend the time to address your true concerns. Their office was in constant communication with me to give me updates and to check on my health and well being. They were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had and even assigned me a personal work case manager that would meet me at the doctors' appointments to make sure I received the best care. When speaking with other patients about their workers compensation cases similar to mine, I found out that they typically always had experienced poor communication and were constantly denied much-needed services and prescriptions. Mr. More fought to get me the best and most advanced prosthetics on the market and procured a lifetime of medical benefits so I will never have to worry about my future. If not for Mr. More and his amazing staff I would be suffering the typical fates and failures the are so common amongst the workers compensation industry.

You would NOT regret hiring Mr. More
I cannot express how great my attorney Mr. More is. You want a lawyer that is confident and Keith More screams confidence. The walk...The talk! He fights hard! Even when I would get discouraged he was right there to tell me, "We got this!" Mr. More knows this business well... I mean you know your attorney is great when other attorneys come in just to watch him during my court case! I wouldn't want any other attorney fighting for me. He fights hard and will not stop until he has won.

I cant thank Keith enough for all that he has done for my husband over the past 4 years. He has fought for both medical and compensation for him and has always won. He will fight for you and will fight for what is right. My husband’s injury was catastrophic and Keith has been there to guide us each step of the way.

Great Lawyer!
I have had a few Lawyers on this case and it was only until Keith took control that I felt like I could breath again! Keith and his staff kept me updated every step of the way only to be followed by results! Kieth was able to get the insurance company to release almost 50K in workers comp back pay as soon as he took my case and most recently had made me able to collect my Disability payment, after the insurrance company tried to stop paying. Keith is a Life saver!

Keith More - Awesome Attorney!
To me the most professional and knowledgeable attorney in the Workman's Compensation industry is Keith More. Keith's is staff is very attentive, very professional. When I had problems, they were taken care of promptly. One of Keith's associates, Denise Davies' professionalism is top notch. No matter what issues I had with appointments or medications, she was there for me. Keith fought for me. He cares about his clients. If I had to recommend an attorney and staff to anyone, I would most definitely recommend Keith More!

Excellent Lawyer
After my husband was involved in a terrible work accident and suffered a catastrophic injury- I was left not knowing what to do and who to trust. I interviewed a few lawyers and felt the most comfortable with Keith for his competence and confidence, hoping that I made the right decision for my husband and my family. I am so happy and grateful to report that Keith has met and continues to exceed our expectations. Since day one he has wholeheartedly fought for our family's best interest. He is passionate and dedicated to his work. He is truly a one-of-kind lawyer mixing competence and intelligence with compassion for his clients. I feel safer knowing he is on OUR side, fighting for us.

Best of the Best
I went to this attorney because my lawyer was not doing his job. Part of what is needed is communication between attorney and client. I had no such communication. Moreover, Attorney More showed me areas where I could be receiving compensation for my injury. My old attorney would not even respond to me, let alone provide information on services available. You will notice some things quite special about Attorney Keith More. First, he is focused on you , the client. Second, he is brilliant. Third, Attorney More knows the areas of law in which he works inside out. Compared with the old attorney, I felt I had gone from getting reluctant help from a law clerk to outstanding representation from one of the very top lawyers in the country. I was more than impressed with my experience and with this attorney !!!

Professional Diligence
I first contacted Keith almost 3 years ago after a slip and fall at a store. He ushered me into his office and was so kind and respectful of my aches and pains. He immediately took photos of my injuries which I had failed to do and recommended that I see my doctor and also have x-rays to find out if any bones were broken. We, at first thought it would be simple case to resolve and he began to make notes and keep records. But when my body organs started to react badly to my pain and stress and I finally needed 11 surgeries to repair the damage done, Keith decided my simple case needed much more attention than originally planned. His decisions and expertise seemed tireless. I was kept apprised of all actions, and with my approval put together a winning case. Keith's diligence and effort is appreciated by my family and I would, and already have recommended his firm to others.
