The Walker Firm is a top law firm that represents clients in Social Security Disability Insurance,
Workers Compensation claims and Labor and Employment cases.


Social Security Disability Insurance

Meet with a Spanish Speaking Walker Firm attorney for your Social Security Benefits case

  • If you or a loved one is unable to work due to a medically determinable condition, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance benefits of up to $3,148 per month.
  • The Social Security Administration reports that only about 26% of first-time applicants are approved for disability benefits who apply without an attorney. 
  • Having an attorney represent you in pursuing your disability claim greatly reduces the headache of gathering paperwork, submitting your application, and tracking important deadlines. This support significantly increases your chance of your claim being approved.
  • Clients Pay nothing out-of-pocket and only pay when the case is won.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program created by the US Gov’t to provide financial relief for persons that have contributed to the social security program and for one reason or another have been diagnosed with a medical reason that prevents them from working, and can no longer work. 

Persons that submit their applications with the assistance of a lawyer are dramatically more likely to get approved for disability than those that are not represented. Studies indicate that applicants that apply with a lawyer are almost twice as likely (60%) for their application to be approved, than those who do not have a lawyer (34%). 

Walker Firm handles SSDI cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that attorney fees are ONLY paid if you are awarded SSDI benefits. 

There are different levels where an SSDI application can be approved. Applications can be approved during:

  • Initial Application
  • Reconsideration 
  • Appeal Hearing

Workers’ Compensation

Walker Firm will get you maximum Workers Compensation

  • Today the maximum temporary Workers’ Compensation benefit for injured workers is $6,672 monthly or two-thirds their salary, whichever is lower.
  • Every year in the U.S. over 600,000 workers are injured on the job with another 560,000 suffering from a new case of ill health which they believe is caused by their work.
  • Walker Firm helps clients get the maximum compensation that is available.
  • These benefits can be accessed by all workers regardless of their immigration status, including full-time and part-time workers.
  • Clients Pay nothing out-of-pocket and only pay when the case is resolved.

Employees who are injured on the job are generally entitled to workers compensation benefits. Workers compensation benefits give employees access to physicians to treat them for their injuries, continued compensation for their employment, along with the potential for disability, future medical treatment and many other benefits. 

Workers’ compensation benefits come from their employer’s insurance policy, hence an injured worker should not hesitate in pursuing a claim.

Our workers compensation attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, so the only fees paid come out of the award, with nothing coming out of pocket. 

If you were injured at work the first and most important thing to do is report it to your employer. Keep all documents that your employer gives you and read them. Time is especially sensitive in this area of law, because waiting too long (30 days or more) can result in a waiver of your rights. 

An attorney will be able to review your claim for workers compensation, assess your injury, and ensure that you are appropriately compensated in the workers compensation system to recover the maximum amount that you are entitled to. 

Employees often try to handle workers compensation claims on their own, but are denied benefits, or waive rights because they are not aware of deadlines or other triggers that give your employer’s insurance company an ability to avoid appropriately compensating you.

Employment Law

Walker Firm is committed to stopping Workplace Law injustices

  • Many employers, large and small, shortchange their workers by not paying them the minimum wage or required overtime, making improper deductions or refusing to pay them altogether. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, minimum wage violations in California alone occur approximately 372,000 times each week.
  • Thousands of other cases for labor law violations are filed for sexual harrassment, discrimination, unpaid overtime, not having uninterrupted meal breaks and other injustices.
  • At the Walker Firm we are committed to stopping these injustices that routinely happen in the workplace. 
  • We help our clients pursue the maximum compensation they are entitled to including back pay and other monetary compensation

Here’s a few examples of Labor Law Violations ….

– Wage and Hour: In California, minimum wage ranges from $14-$15 per hour. The distinction between $14 and $15 is defined by the number of employees. Employers with 25 employees or less are only required to pay $14, but employers with more than 25 employees are required to pay their employees $15 per hour. If you are an employee getting paid less than that, you are likely owed all past due monies for the time you were being paid less than minimum wage. 

– Sexual Harrassment: Harassment on the job is a reality for millions of employees in the United States. This can occur if an employee is being sexually harrassed, are the subject to jokes, slurs, insults, unwelcome touching, or any other work environment that a reasonable person would perceive as abusive or hostile. If you have a work environment where you fear your employer, or are not comfortable because of a reason that you deem inappropriate, you may have a claim against your employer. 

– Discrimination: Age, Disability, Gender, Pregnancy, Race, Religion: Unfortunately, discrimination is a very real and continuing problem in California, the United States, and the world. An employee is being statutorily discriminated against, if he or she is a member of a protected class and another employee is being paid more than the employee for the same duties he or she is carrying out. Protected classes include, but are not limited to, persons who are females, minorities, or at an advanced age (55+). If you are being paid less than somebody else than your job and are a part of a protected class, you may be being discriminated against.  Discrimination also could apply when you are passed up on a promotion, are laid off or fired, among other scenarios.  For any of these reasons, you may have a claim against your employer.

– Wrongful Termination & Whistleblowing: This occurs when an employer terminates an employee for an unjust cause. California is an “at-will” employment state, which means that an employer can fire an employee for any reason, except for those that violate U.S. or state law. Common examples of wrongful termination include whistleblowing or discrimination. A common reason an employer will fire an employee is for retaliation purposes for “whistleblowing.” This occurs when an employee reports, complains, or exposes inappropriate behavior at the place of employment or against the employer. Employers will sometimes find another excuse to fire an employee because they reported. California laws encourage and protect workers who come forward and report misconduct in the workplace. If you have stood up against misconduct in the workplace and were subsequently terminated, you may have been wrongfully terminated. If you were fired, and believe that you were fired unjustly, you may have a claim against your employer. 

– Meal and lunch break violations: As an employee, even if paid hourly, the employee is  entitled to a 10 minute break for every four hours of work. Employees must also have an uninterrupted 30-minute lunch break within the first 5-hours worked and a second 30-minute meal break if the shift lasts longer than 10 hours. When an employer fails to provide these breaks, they are in violation of wage and hour law. If you are not receiving the breaks you are entitled to, you may be entitled to back pay and additional compensation. 

– Free Time Violations: Employers will also commonly, and maybe without knowing, steal an employees free time. Whenever an employee is on a break, off work, or otherwise not being paid, and an employer requests an employee to do something during that time, they are required to compensate the employee for that time. This can happen when an employee is not on the clock and is requested to provide information, send emails, requested work during the employees vacation or sick time, or otherwise not compensated for the time doing work for their employer. If you are not being paid for all the time you work, you may have a claim against your employer
