How are you qualified to handle my workers’ compensation case?

Attorney James Yoro has been handling workers’ compensation cases for nearly 40 years, and is a Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Professional in California. Before joining Chain | Cohn | Stiles, attorney Beatriz Trejo practices as a defense attorney in front of the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, and is familiar with the inner workings of insurance companies, insurance carriers, and self-insured employers, which benefits clients and gives us the upper hand. Beatriz is also fluent in Spanish. And two workers’ comp lawyers are backed by a full team of legal professional, including paralegal Lesleigh Johnston, who has more than 30 years of experience in workers’ compensation law.

Additionally, Yoro and Trejo have written dozens of articles on workers’ compensation law. Here are just a few of their recently published works:
