Insurance Bad FaithInsurance companies are business operations, and they operate on a profit motive. That means that they may try to deny or delay your claim, or limit the value of your settlement to lower than what your policy is worth. We can help you protect your rights and fight to see that you receive full coverage.
Workplace InjuryAfter a workplace accident, you may be eligible for other sources of compensation besides workers’ compensation benefits. Talk to a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at our firm for help filing a claim against third parties to recover additional damages beyond your workers’ compensation benefits. We can work with your workers' compensation lawyer to maximize your overall recovery; and if you do not have a workers' compensation lawyer, we can refer you to a trusted colleague to evaluate the workers' compensation claim as well.
Employment LawCalifornia's employment laws protect you against age, gender, race, and religion-based discrimination, as well as sexual harassment in the workplace. If you have suffered discrimination or harassment in your workplace, discuss your case with a Los Angeles employment lawyer at our firm and learn how you can protect your civil rights and file a claim for compensation.

We’d be honored to help you recover the compensation owed to you due to the actions of another person or entity.

When a car accident involves criminal conduct, including drunk driving or a hit-and-run incident, the injured victim's compensation may include a personal injury settlement from the defendant's car insurance company and restitution from the criminal defendant to cover the contingency attorney fee on the settlement.
