Los Angeles Workers' Compensation Attorneys
Our firm's founding partners began their careers in labor law and California Workers' Compensation law, and nearly three decades later, continue to provide the highest quality legal services to injury victims from all walks of life. Each attorney in our California Workers' Compensation practice has experience in all aspects of related law, and our partners have served on the Board of Governors of the California Applicants' Attorneys Association (CAAA), the top professional organization of attorneys who serve California's injured workers.
To stay on the cutting edge of developments in the law, our Workers Compensation attorneys attend educational seminars all over the state each year. In fact, our attorneys participate as planners and speakers at many of these seminars. Our firm's lawyers also spend a great deal of time updating unions and other public groups on the ever-changing law.
Many of our firm's Workers' Compensation partners have been recognized for their high level of service to our clients and the legal community by such directories as Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers.
