Workers' Compensation and Employment Defense

Our specialty. For more than 20 years, we have been vigorously defending workers' compensation claims. We represent employers, insurance companies, third-party administrators, and public agencies before the California Workers' Compensation Appeals Board and appellate courts of California. We also defend Serious & Willful Misconduct petitions, Penalty Claims, and Labor Code Section 132a discrimination claims. In addition to our workers' compensation litigation practice, we provide counseling services to our clients on a wide range of employment issues.

Our philosophy is simple - achieve quick, effective resolutions, while minimizing litigation costs. Each case is subject to a continuing cost-benefit analysis in order to ensure the best possible outcome. We take great pride in our ability to provide practical, economical solutions for each case.


This complex area of the law requires expertise in both workers' compensation law and civil litigation. Our firm has expert attorneys who specialize in this field. The goal is always to minimize the net benefits owed by the carrier by maximizing the carrier's recovery in the civil lawsuit. Our subrogation and compensation attorneys work closely as a team to achieve cost-effective resolutions for each case.

Insurance Coverage Opinions and Litigation

We have attorneys who specialize in preparing insurance coverage opinions and litigating coverage disputes. Our attorneys have the ability to provide policy analysis across different lines of insurance, including Workers' Compensation and Employer Liability Policies, and Commercial General Liability Policies.

General Civil Litigation

In addition to workers' compensation and insurance matters, our firm has a team of expert civil litigators. Our civil attorneys will vigorously and forcefully represent your interests in court while remaining cognizant of the benefits and costs of litigation. Our attorneys also have extensive experience with alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.
