Summary

I have over 31 years handling workers compensation and personal injury, as a Claims Adjuster / Hearing Representative for 10 years and 20 years as a Personal Injury & Workers Compensation Attorney for thousands of Southern California clients. I’ve also handle limited criminal defense and family law matters throughout Southern California areas of Riverside, Inland Empire, Murrieta and Indio. Our offices handle all Personal Injury & Workers Compensation matters throughout Southern California.

While in Law School, I worked full time as a workers compensation hearing representative for Firemens Fund & Fremont Insurance. After working for several large law Personal Injury & Workers' Compensation firms in Los Angeles, I decided to open up my own office in 2002. I believe in hard work and putting the client first. We have recovered over $250,000,000 in benefits and settlements for our clients. We also have helped hundreds with their criminal and family law matters.

I believe in putting our clients first and doing everything possible to get them the best results as an advocate. We strive for excellence and integrity.

Legal Answers
74 Questions Answered

Q. can I Withdraw my signature from the settlement if it hasn’t gone through ?
A: Look for a competent workers comp attorney right away. Insurance adjusters will always offer you the lowest amount possible. Plus it’s very possible that the judge will not approve it for that reason.
Q. I just closed my work comp case last year, but symptoms are back, new job and it's hard to work, what should I do?
A: I suggest that you find a competent workers comp attorney to discuss your matter. He may find a CT claim and other important issues. Good luck!
Q. CA-released by all doctors to return full duty-Employer stalling-no return to work no release-just in limbo-options?
A: You are being jacked around by your employer and you need solid representation by a competent workers compensation attorney. Don’t waste time. Most workers compensation attorneys will give you a free consultation and normally charge about 15% once the case settles.
Q. I am now 22. But when I was 16 my high school coach slept with me and I'm curious what my current options are.
A: Its very tragic to hear your story. You need to contact an experienced PI attorney that specializes in Sexual Abuse and Molestation cases. There is a new law that was recently approved in October by the Governor. It is AB 218 which basically extends the Statute of Limitations up to the age of 40. However, because details and evidence is extremely important, it is important to report all the details to the police department. Speak to an experienced attorney right away. Good Luck.
Q. I had a mri last September. When the results came back, my wc doctor was on a month vacation, so I had to wait for his
A: I suggest you consult with an experienced workers compensation attorney. The whole Calif Workers Comp System is a complete Joke & Sham controlled by the insurance companies and their puppets in Sacramento. You may also contact the Calif Applicant Attorney Association and ask for a list of their members and specialists. I wish you well in this ridiculous industry controlled by Insurance Companies.
Q. Hi ,I wanted to find out at what time I should contact my insurer .In the back of my car ,hit the Kia car . Bogumil
A: We’re sorry to hear of your accident. From your info, I’m not sure if you were hit from behind or you hit someone from behind. In any event, if you were hit from behind, you need to exchange information and you need to take pictures of any damage. If you got hit from behind and sustained any pain or suffering as a result of the accident, please contact a Personal Injury attorrney for a free consultation to find out what your rights are and what steps you can take.
Q. I was sexually abused by my employer. I work at a church. Are there any free resources or representation for this?
A: We are sorry that you have gone through that unfortunate and evil experience. A personal injury lawyer that they deals with these crimes can file a personal Injury Claim against the insurance company’s minister and church. In addition, the police need to be contacted immediately so that there’s an investigation as well. There is so much involved in this type of claim. You would need to be sent to medical experts & counselors. These cases are extremely delicate and have high value if proven in court. You will not have to pay any upfront fees or costs. However, many lawyers will negotiate their fees between 25-33% before litigation.
Q. Claims admin stoppedTD payments after QME report of significant limitations,5% WPI and ppd.
A: I highly recommend you get a Workers Comp attorney. You simply fell into the trap of thinking you could get a “reasonable settlement” without a Workers comp attorney. Look around for a Calif workers comp attorney that has experience! Good luck!
Q. How much would a deposit be?
A: Depends on the case and circumstances.
