Steve Meline has over twenty years of exclusive California workers’ compensation  experience.  He started his law practice as an insurance defense attorney spending years  working directly in and for major workers' compensation insurance companies.   During  this time, he learned how insurance companies think, how they evaluate, and how they  defend workers' compensation claims.    For the last twelve years, he has represented injured workers' in workers' compensation  cases.  He only represents injured workers.  Further, he has prevailed against just about  any insurance company or major employer you could name.  Attorney Meline loves to  fight for injured workers, and to this end, he has devoted his entire law practice.  Mr. Meline's background and experience commands great respect from the defense,  from the adjustors and the defense attorneys on his cases because they know “he has  been there.”  Steve Meline understands and takes advantage of the weaknesses of, and  pressures faced by, his adversaries.

Todo mundo espera recivir un buen resultado en su pleito y eso es lo que se ha logrado en la mayoria de los litigios del Sr. Meline. Al mismo tiempo el Sr. Meline es un litigante. Està preparado para presentarce al tribunal y entablar juìcio cuando sea necesario con el fin de beneficiar a su cliente. Varios reclamos terminan ante un juez porque las aseguradoras tratan de ignorar o menos preciar todo reclamo que puedan. Pero las causas del Sr. Meline no se ignoraran. Toda causa se prepara para juìcio con la filosofìa de que si la causa està lista a ir a juìcio, entonces a lo major no tiene que terminar de esa forma y asi se consigue un mejor arreglo. La idea de las aseguradoras es de no hacer tanto y pagar lo menos posible. Si esa ventaja no existe para ellos al tener una causa bien preparada, no tienen nada que ganar, y por lo general ofrecen un arreglo decente. Cuando la aseguradora no quiera ser justa, entonces estaremos listos a llevar la causa a juìcio.

Hay bufetes donde los abogados no se encargan de los archives personalmente cuando representan a los lesiados ni cuando tienen que desarrollar las causas, y los pleitos los maneja por lo general un asistente legal. Sin embargo el Sr. Meline administra personalment cada uno de sus archivos y no déjà que otro tome decisiones legales o haga compareciencias ante los tribunals.

El Sr. Meline representa con gran efecto a clients en todos los cuatro condados del sur de California Incluyendo:

  • Orange County
  • Los Angeles County
  • San Bernardino County
  • Riverside County

Honorarios de Abogado

Cuando lo representa el Sr. Meline, no le pagarà ningun centavo, ni le deberà ninguna cantidad. Sus honorarios en las causas de Indemnizaciòn Laboral nunca seran mas del 15% del valor de la causa cuando se llegue a un acuerdo, aunque la causa llegue a juìcio.
