Story
Introduction
After practicing workers' compensation law for nearly 18 years, I founded and grew WorkCompCentral into the most respected news and education service in the workers' compensation industry. I am a regular public speaker on workers' compensation to industry trade shows, educational seminars, radio and television, and have been quoted or cited in general media publications such as Fortune Magazine, the LA Times and Wall Street Journal. I have been published in leading industry journals and scholarly publications on topics ranging from the underlying financial issues that led to an historic makeover of the California workers' compensation system, to the new paradigm in work injury protection and national trends in the workers' compensation industry.
