Why Hire Attorney John R. Gonzalez Over Thousands Of Other Attorneys?
Personally represented injured workers for 27 years. Many attorneys advertise their total years of practice or combine experiences with other attorneys.
*Obtained over $100 Million in Workers’ Compensation Settlements. I’ve settled a $1 million case before and will do what it takes to get you the BEST settlement possible. See for yourself: Actual Results
Recognized by the State Bar of California as a Certified Specialist Since 1996. Make sure that the attorney representing you is a certified specialist; many workers’ compensation attorneys are not.
Personally entered into over 10,000 settlement agreements and appeared in more than 20,000 court hearings. Be wary of attorneys spending more time at the office than in court fighting for your rights.
Graduated from UC Davis School of Law, currently ranked 37th in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. Look up your attorney, and find out where their law school is ranked. Many law schools are unranked or unaccredited.
Worked in excess of 85,000 hours on Workers’ Compensation Issues. Studies show that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at anything. Our firm puts in the time necessary for extraordinary results. I believe preparation and experience are the keys to success. Be sure you ask your attorney what work is actually being done on your case.
Focus exclusively on Worker’s Compensation Law. Many competitors handle other types of cases, like personal injury and social security, that take time away from the practice of worker's compensation.
Unparalleled work ethic: I’ve only missed two days due to sickness since 1990 and usually work 12 hours per day, including holidays. I especially like working holidays because it allows me to get ahead of the competition.
Staff with over 149 combined years of Worker’s Compensation Law experience. Many competitors change staff all the time. Ask your law firm’s staff how many years of Worker’s Compensation experience they have and take note if you’re constantly getting transferred to different legal assistants because of turnover.
On a personal note, I’ve been married for 26 years and have four children that have either graduated from, are attending, or will attend the top three schools in the nation: Harvard University, Princeton University, Yale University, and Yale Law School. Three of my four children have never missed a day of school from K-12th grade, and three of my four children got straight A’s from K-12th grade.
