About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

     I am a California State Bar Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law, the only one in Redwood City as of 6/24/14.  I have been practicing this law for 30 years.  I am also on the Labor Commitee of the California Applicant's Attorney's Association, the organization for California Workers' Compensation Atttornies.  I have published articles in CAAMents, the CAAA house magazine, getMedlegal Magazine and many other publications over time.

     Before becoming a lawyer, I worked for the AFL-CIO for 10 years in a variety of capacities organizing the Frontlash voter registration project from the San Francisco Labor Council, union and political organizer, a stint on the Hubert Humphrey campaign for President and running a project to promote traning programs and job placement for the disadvantaged.

     I started my law practice in San Francisco in 1984 and moved it to Redwood City in 1996. 

     For relaxation, I perform on the guitar and vocals at the San Gregorio Store and other venues and I surf.

Good Attorney
I think Mr. Grimes is wonderful attorney and I highly recommend him. My case went very quickly. The employer illegally fired me, so Mr. Grimes filed an extra claim for that. It was very hard fought with an aggressive defense attorney and many depositions. In the end, I got extra money because of the claim and Mr. Grime's work. I found him businesslike and easy to work with. He was pleasant with me but I saw him get aggressive when the defense attorney was aggressive with him.
