About Howard J. Stevens, Attorney

howardLet's say you're hospitalized after a workplace injury, losing wages from time off the job, and watching medical bills pile up. Your employer and its insurance company are unsympathetic. The doctor you are encouraged to see downplays the seriousness of your condition. You may wind up having no job to go back to — unless an experienced, exceptional attorney, a Certified Specialist in workers' compensation claims, takes your case, and comes to your rescue.

In San Diego County, who is that skilled lawyer you should reach out to? Who is the former workers' compensation claims examiner for insurance companies who "knows where the benefits are buried," and how to pry them loose?

Howard J. Stevens

For more than 35 years, Howard J. Stevens has focused on the legal needs of workplace accident injury victims in Southern California. He is certified as a specialist in workers' compensation by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. He represents clients in all types of cases before the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board in San Diego County. These job injury victims typically suffer from "continuous trauma," which can lead to more serious physical and emotional impairment, as well as medical setbacks that include orthopedic injuries, heart problems, toxic exposures, hearing loss and industrially related deaths.

Aside from a thorough understanding of the law and the administrative rules that apply to workers' compensation, Mr. Stevens spent years as a former employer/insurance defense attorney and former workers' comp claims examiner. He knows how adjusters and insurance companies think, and how to stay one step ahead of them.
