This is my story
My Dad was a career Naval Officer. I grew up on the water. My maritime experience started while sitting on his Dad’s lap, driving my Dad’s boats. My first job was working on a crab boat. I went to law school to become a maritime lawyer. I started practicing Maritime Injury Law in San Diego in 1987. From the beginning I was representing seriously injured workers and seaman from the shipyards and waterfront of San Diego.
Today, I represent seriously injured Seaman, passengers, Longshore and Defense Base Act workers (the DBA falls under the Longshore Act and is considered part of Maritime Injury Law) that are injured around the world. I have offices in San Diego, Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
For my entire career I have been representing seriously injured workers and their families in all types of serious injury, catastrophic injury and death cases. I handle all types personal injury cases from maritime to work-place injuries to product liability cases. For example, all of my Longshore clients and shipyard clients also file State of California Workers’ Compensation cases. As you can imagine, my guys and gals get injured on vessels, on the water front, in automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents, work accidents, and in Defense Base Act incidents across the world.
Wage and Hour Class Actions
My firm and I also handle wage and hour class action cases. Today, I represent over 100,000 workers in California wage and hour class action cases. It was a natural fit, because I have been handling cases involving the California Labor Code since 1987. My firm represents injured workers. Wage and hour class action cases are another way workers are harmed. I have always been there for injured workers and their families.
So that it's it - I spealize in Maritime Injuries, Work Injuries and Wage and Hour Class Actions.
We are Trial Lawyers - Not Settlement Lawyers
First and foremost, I am a trial lawyer – not a settlement lawyer. There is a big difference. I understand and specialize in serious accident litigation and trials.
I have the honor to have been elected to be President of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. I have been repeatedly awarded Super Lawyer and I have the highest Avvo Rating. I have been published over 100 times and I am listed as Amicus Curie in over 20 California Supreme Court opinions.
I am so proud to be a trial lawyer. I have devoted my career to helping seriously injured folks, just like you, get the compensation you deserve. I have always tried to help the underdog. That is where my heart and soul are.
