An Overview of Our Practice

We offer comprehensive legal counsel to people with claims involving:

  • Benefits under California or Federal Workers' Compensation laws for injuries suffered on the job — In over two decades in practice, we have handled workers' compensation claims in nearly every industry in the greater San Diego area. Longshore workers with employers such as NASSCO, Continental Maritime, SouthWest Marin and BAE Systems are covered under both federal and state laws. Any employee injured during new ship or vessel construction or ship or vessel repair needs an attorney knowledgeable of both federal and state compensation statutes. We often receive referrals from attorneys who only know State of California compensation laws. You need to do what they do — call us now if you have been injured working near the waterfront or upon maritime vessel. Any work injury that causes lost time needs attorney advice to protect your rights.
  • Compensation under the Social Security program for injuries or illness that prevent you from working If you cannot return to your past work of the last 15 years due to chronic illness or traumatic injury, we will help you determine if you qualify for federal monthly benefits or medical health insurance under Social Security disability laws. The Social Security Administration will frequently deny individuals benefits due to regulations only understood by themselves that have nothing to do with your illness or injury. Always get an attorney to evaluate denial of your claim. Don't delay. There are strict appeal deadlines. We also assist the elderly, blind and disabled who seek benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.
