In 2019 I joined Solution Law, APC, on Harbor Blvd. in Fountain Valley as part of a team of experienced lawyers and paralegals that focus on personal injury as well as business, employment, real estate, and trust litigation as well as criminal defense matters in both federal and California courts. A former police officer heads our criminal defense practice. Many staff members are bilingual in Vietnamese.
Early evening and Saturday appointments are available.
I continue to handle workers' compensation cases at both Solution Law and at The Law Offices of Frank J. Mastroni in Huntington Beach.
In workers' compensation cases, we have turned around multiple denied claims into accepted cases in which our clients receive surgeries paid for by the insurance company as well as disability benefits followed by favorable settlements. Our firm does not push our clients into early settlements, but instead, we litigate for medical treatment and indemnity benefits, trying cases often. Since 1987 I have tried over two-hundred workers' compensation cases, often on difficult and novel issues. In addition, I have authored over twenty briefs before the California Court of Appeal on workers' compensation issues.
Legal volunteer work includes service since 1991 as a volunteer judge (judge pro tempore) at various venues of the California Division of Workers' Compensation as well as a small claims and traffic court judge in Orange County. Also, I have served four terms on the Board of Directors of a Homeowners' Association with two terms as president during a period of construction defect litigation and two terms on the Board of Directors, including a term as vice-president, of another homeowners' association.
My legal career started in the Huntington Beach City Attorney's office where I served as a Deputy City Attorney from 1986 to 1988 and on a contract basis as an outside attorney until 2003.
In personal injury matters, Solution Law fronts all costs and works on a contingency fee such that our clients never pay anything out-of-pocket. All fees and costs are deducted from the award or settlement.
In workers' compensation matters, there are no upfront costs or fees for injured workers with claims before the California workers' compensation courts. Our fees are usually 15% of any award or settlement subject to approval by a California Workers' Compensation Administrative Law Judge.
