At Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld, our Santa Barbara workers’ compensation and social security disability attorneys have protected the rights of California residents since 1956. Sixty-five years later, GG&F continues fighting for the rights of the injured and disabled in California through a team of dedicated and compassionate attorneys and staff.
