Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I've been a practicing Workers' Compensation lawyer for over 29 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, becoming the first person in my family to attain a university degree and the only family member to have a post-graduate degree.

I've worked exclusively in the field of Worker's Rights since 1990, and have run my own worker's compensation law firm since 1994, averaging 15 appearances at the Worker's Compensation Appeals Board a 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.

I've been married for 28 years and have four children that have either graduated from or are attending the top three schools in the nation: Harvard University, Princeton University, and Yale Law School.
