I have practiced in Northern California for 36 years and now focus mainly on Workers Compensation and Personal Injury claims. I have built an excellent staff of associate attorneys and legal assistants. We can offer you prompt and experience legal services, with the goal assisting you in obtaining all benefits to which you are entitled, as well as the best final result and settlement. We are geared to assist in person, or remotely if that is more convenient for you. Give us a call or email, and we will discuss what we can do to assist you in your injury claim.
