Our workers’ compensation attorneys have expertise in the complex procedural and substantive aspects of workers’ compensation practice and appear at Boards throughout Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties, including Oxnard, Van Nuys, Los Angeles, Pomona, Marina Del Rey, Long Beach, Anaheim, Santa Ana, San Bernardino and Riverside. Subrogation is conducted under the direction of Elliot Kushner, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience.
The firm’s system of reporting 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. A coordination of services can also be instituted should the client require assistance in both subrogation and workers’ compensation.
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.
The firm has adopted a policy that quality of work is the most critical function for any attorney. In this regard, we maintain reasonable file counts. Our intent is to assign files according to potential expertise and Board location. Our attorneys are responsible for their own files and attend all hearings and depositions unless there is an unavoidable conflict. The firm currently employs fourteen lawyers dedicated to handling matters in defense workers’ compensation and subrogation.
