We Are a Workers’ Compensation Law Firm in Encino, CA With 30+ Years of Experience

Our Expertise

Our attorneys have extensive experience in workers’ compensation, including complex procedural and substantive aspects and issues. Our ability to roundtable claims and litigation utilizing the individual knowledge and expertise of our attorneys allows us to provide our clients with guidance, analysis and recommendations that commonly result in economically favorable outcomes. Where we can effectuate an early resolution of claims, attorneys’ fees and related litigation expenses are reduced.

How We Work

Our law firm has developed a system of reporting which includes an initial comprehensive analysis of the file materials, formulating a mutually acceptable discovery plan with the client, proceeding through discovery and offering an evaluation after the initial round of discovery. Coordination of services can also be instituted should the client require assistance and recommendations in regards to all phases of workers’ compensation and subrogation.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to take a balanced approach to file handling. Our files are aggressively and professionally prepared for trial on the merits, but we realize that full litigation is not always the most effective approach. Where there are opportunities to settle, the firm will discuss an appropriate plan of action with the client. This critical need for effective and timely communication is a hallmark of the firm.

Quality Matters

The firm has adopted a policy that quality of work is the most critical function for an attorney. In this regard, we maintain reasonable file counts and assign files according to potential expertise. Our attorneys are responsible for their files and attend all hearings and depositions unless there is an unavoidable conflict. The firm currently employs 13 lawyers.
