Expertise born from experience


I've been a practicing Workers' Compensation lawyer for over 32 years, providing representation on thousands of cases. 


Born and raised in California to first-generation immigrants, I've known the value of hard work all my life. My father did manual labor for over five decades, and now I work to protect the rights of people just like him. I've worked continuously since the 5th grade as a shoe shiner, newspaper boy, dishwasher, janitor, landscaper, pizza deliverer, cook at McDonald's and Burger King, construction worker, and carpenter. In short, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.  


I graduated with Honors from Calfornia State University, Sacramento and received a J.D from UC Davis School of Law.


I've worked exclusively in the field of Worker's Rights since 1990, and have ran my own worker's compensation law firm since 1994, making more than 15 appearances at the Worker's Compensation Appeals Board per week. I've also been a certified specialist in the field since 1996. 


Since 1990, I've only missed two days of work due to illness and have spent over 85,000 hours on workers' compensation issues.


I've obtained over *$100 million in Workers' Compensation settlements and made appearances in over 20,000 court hearings.


What I bring to the table is relentless and aggressive legal representation. I am not afraid to put in the extra hours necessary to get the legal results that you deserve. I believe that with enough grit and hard work, anything is possible.
