Keith C. Mackenzie
Keith C. Mackenzie practices Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability Appeals (SSD) law. He approaches his practice with a keen analytical eye that incorporates the legal issues involved as well as the effect a case is having on his clients. This combination is extremely effective from the research and deposition phase of a case all the way to the final resolution.
Mr. Mackenzie honed his legal acumen through his work as a paralegal where he researched and drafted memoranda regarding tort, corporate and contract law as well as pleadings and discovery dealing with articles of incorporation and shareholder operating agreements.
While working directly with clients as an attorney volunteer for California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA), he was able to experience first-hand how legal knowledge and a bit of empathy can make a real difference in a person’s life. CRLA and its mission—“to fight for justice and individual rights…”—created an ideal foundation for Mr. Mackenzie’s Workers’ Compensation practice.
Mr. Mackenzie, who is fluent in Spanish, received his bachelor’s degree in political science, with a minor in Spanish, from the University of California, Los Angeles. While an undergraduate, he participated in the Education Abroad Program, attending the University of Cadiz Summer Language Program and studying at the University of Barcelona.
While earning his Juris Doctor from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Mr. Mackenzie served as associate editor of The Pittsburg Tax Review and was a member of the Career Services Student Advisory Board. His journal entry topic was “Tax Considerations for the U.S. Investor in Mexico.” In addition, he attended the University of New Mexico Summer Law Institute in Guanajuato, Mexico and studied the North American Free Trade Agreement and Mexican business organizations. While there, he also completed an externship in the litigation department of the state of Guanajuato’s Office of the Secretary of Finance.
Mr. Mackenzie is a member of the Southern California Applicants’ Attorneys Association, the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association and the Los Angeles County Bar Association. He is admitted to practice in the state of California.
