I’ve been a practicing workers compensation lawyer for over 20 years now, graduated from law school in 1989 and right outta law school I clerked at the court of appeals and that’s where I learned about workers compensation because there are no classes in law school about workers compensation.

And so writing and researching opinions on workers compensation I saw so many injustices being done to injured workers and I saw how the insurance company has millions of dollars and unlimited resources for it’s defense councils and private investigators and vocational rehabilitation people to try to save a dime to the sever detriment to injured workers. That the longer I was in practice the longer I realized that this is really the only type of work that I want to be doing.

So I don’t do automobile accidents, I don’t do medical malpractice, I don’t do divorce work and I don’t do criminal work, because I try to solely do, try to be as onto of the law as I can in one particular area which is workers compensation so I can help injured workers.
