Searching for a lawyer who is a true expert in their field? Only 5% of workers’ compensation attorneys are Certified Specialists. Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld has three of those rare experts on staff. Our attorneys and staff are experienced, knowledgeable, and able to help.
We are family owned and operated out of Santa Barbara since 1956, so if you’re looking for a local business, you’ve found it. But if you want someone with the power of an established team behind them, we have that too. Our business expanded to Santa Maria in 2012, Oxnard in 2013, Bakersfield in 2014, Visalia in 2019, and Fresno in 2020.
While Santa Barbara is our Headquarters and hosts the largest majority of our staff, we have a local Attorney or Hearing Representative in each of our offices, and all six offices work together on all our cases. This gives you the dual advantage of having a local attorney who has the combined experience of our entire team behind them.
While you don’t need a lawyer, it can often increase the likelihood of success, as well as the amount of benefits you may receive. Because we are trained inside and outside in our field, like a surgeon is trained to make an incision, we know all the benefits available to the injured, including opportunities and value your employer or insurance company may not share with you.
