My WC lawyer
I want to 100% recommend Rene Munoz as a Worker’s Compensation (WC) lawyer. I was lucky enough to have him as my WC lawyer. I had spoken to several other worker compensation lawyers before meeting with Rene. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Rene very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion at my plight. What really impressed me was how well Rene represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job in advocating for my needs and I was very happy with the outcome of the case. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience in working with Rene Munoz. I encourage others to contact him for a free consultation.”

I Highly Recommend
Mr. Munoz really helped me understand my options in my workers compensation case. He explained the process and got me a great result. I recommend him if you don’t want to face the insurance company yourself.
