Gary W. Allen Senior Associate Attorney


Senior Associate Attorney & Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law

Mr. Allen received his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University Los Angeles in 1991. He went on to complete his Masters studies and received his degree in Public Administration from California State University Northridge in 1996. He then continued his studies and obtained his Juris Doctorate in 1998 from the Southwestern University School of Law.

He received his Certificate of Specialization in Workers’ Compensation from the California Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California in 2008. Throughout his career, he has routinely appeared before nearly every Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board office throughout the State of California, familiarizing himself with the practices, procedures, and locally applied rules of each individual board. He further lends his expertise in analyzing and conducting in-house permanent disability ratings, utilizing both the new and old rating schedules, as each individual situation warrants.

Prior to dedicating his career to the area of workers’ compensation, Mr. Allen practiced law as a prosecutor and has an extensive background in law enforcement.

As a Senior Associate Attorney, joining the firm in 2000, Mr. Allen often mentors Junior Attorneys and provides educational assistance to our clientele and legal staff in several key legal fields, including the oftentimes highly complex area of permanent disability ratings.
