I enjoy meeting my clients and spending time with them to help them with their work related injuries. I help clients who have denied work related injuries. I obtain temporary disability benefits for them and also refer them to alternate sources of support if they are not working. And, if medical treatment is denied or not being provided, I refer them to a good treating doctor who can help them.
I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. From an early age, I realized that I got a great deal of satisfaction trying to help people with their problems. That is why after going to college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, I attended Loyola Law School.
After becoming a lawyer, I started practicing workers compensation law in 1993. I was attracted to this area of law, because I liked meeting people from different backgrounds, and I was dealing with injured employees who needed my help.
My first workers’ comp law job involved working for a high volume law firm where the attorneys had very little contact with their clients and first met their clients when their went to Court to settle their cases. I realized that was not how I wanted to practice law. I wanted to meet my clients when they first came to my office to request legal representation. So I structured my law office so I could personally meet all of my clients at the initial meeting at my office and spend time with them getting to know them and their unique legal problems. I realized that way I could be very knowledge- able about their case and give them the best possible legal representation for their work related injury. Besides the initial meeting, I continue to meet with each client usually several times between the time I take in their case and the time their case resolves.
At my law firm, you’re a person and not a number. Your case will get the individual attention it deserves.
