In fact, attorney John C. Gutierrez is a former administrative law judge in the workers' compensation court. He has handled hundreds of cases, and several of his opinions have been affirmed by the California Courts of Appeal.
"I enjoy workers' compensation law because I feel like I have an upper hand. I used to be an insurance adjuster, so I know how the insurance companies handle things, but they don't know how I handle things. I can anticipate their moves, but they can't anticipate mine. I enjoy getting great results for my clients." — Attorney Fakhrudeen Hussain
