LDM believes police officers should be represented by attorneys that are experts in their field. As LDM attorneys are experts in labor litigation and disciplinary matters. If we were to attempt to provide our clients representation in workers compensation law, our expertise in police labor and discipline law would be diminished. While some firms claim they are experts in everything, the reality that causes has officers involved in shootings being represented by workers compensation attorneys (never a good idea) or a seriously injured officer being represented in his workers compensation case by any attorney that does not practice solely in that field (also not a good idea). Instead, LDM will continue to focus our knowledge and expertise in what we do best, police labor litigation and discipline and leave workers compensation to attorneys that are experts in that ever changing and complicated area of the law.
Fortunately, we have found such experts in workers compensation law. By arrangements we have made for our clients, client associations of LDM (and their members) have access to one of the best workers compensation firms in the State, Gordon, Edelstein, Krepack,Grant, Felton & Goldstein. The law firms that represent most of the police associations in Southern California now refer their clients to this firm, that is rapidly becoming the preeminent firm in police workers compensation. This arrangement provides that our client members may receive advice on their potential workers compensation case or any other related issue without charge.
