The Manning & Kass Workers’ Compensation Team, led by 2005–2006 and 2013–2015 Super Lawyer and California State Bar Certified Workers' Compensation Specialist Erwin A. Nepomuceno, aggressively defends employers and insurers against questionable or denied workers’ compensation claims. We are always ready to fight for employers facing allegations of 132a discrimination and/or charges of serious and willful misconduct. We also proactively manage costs and maximize opportunities to close accepted claims.
Our team’s clients range from multi-line carriers, self-insured employers and marquis national accounts, to small businesses. Each client works with a small group of individually chosen attorneys dedicated to the client’s long-term success. Members of our Workers’ Compensation Team are aided by an exceptional cross-disciplinary firm-wide network of experts in appellate litigation, construction, employment, transportation and trucking, sports and recreation law, subrogation and more. Team members regularly participate in industry conferences and seminars for continual education.
We combat fraud of many kinds—from applicant and lien to vendor. Our team frequently collaborates with law enforcement to obtain recoveries in civil and criminal courts. We have garnered a sterling reputation for our ethics, legal acumen, and preparedness.
