Berman v. Kaiser - This was a significant case that was published where we prevailed at trial and in subsequent appeals regarding the definition of Labor Code Section 3208.3 regarding what constitutes a lawful, non-discriminatory personnel action.
Becerra v. San Francisco Drydock - Involved an employee who fell to his death. The defendant refused to provide death benefits to his family including his mother that he supported. The case was tried and we prevailed. The case was also appealed where we also prevailed and eventually won for his family the benefits they were entitled to under Federal Law.

I decided on my primary specialty, because it enables me to help employees.
I think it is very important. Clients will have a better understanding of the legal process and what it will take to resolve their case.
I review these documents.
We do not do this because of legal liability issues.
I've been involved in the Workers' Compensation Field and Longshore Law since 1992 while still in Law School and working for a law firm representing injured workers. After graduating from law school, I continued to work in the same field with another law firm. I eventually became a partner there which became Russo, Uriarte & Carr LLP. That firm eventually became Uriarte & Carr LLP.
My life experiences, law school and internships provides a unique insight and understanding of my clients circumstances. My legal experience has exposed me to the plight of my clients who have difficulty navigating the complexities of the legal system and other social institutions which has provided me a better understanding and compassion of their experiences. Because of this I strive to provide expert representation of my clients and attempt to resolve their cases in a timely manner.
I have extensive experience in representing injured workers from the beginning of their case, to medical evaluations, settlement, trial and appeals. I have represented clients in over a thousand depositions, hundreds of trials and numerous appeals to the Court of Appeals up to the Supreme Court.
