LatinoComp grew from humble beginnings. In 1995 a group of legal professionals met in order to provide a support system for sole practitioners in workers’ compensation. The first meeting involved a few individuals at a law office in East Los Angeles. At those meetings, we exchanged forms, discussed strategy, evaluated problem cases, and brought each other up to date on current case law.
Building on initial successes, these Founders formalized the association for the purpose of enhancing the quality of representation at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board. Under the Mexican American Bar Association (MABA) we established a Workers’ Compensation Sub-Committee. The sub-committee invited the best and brightest minds in the industry to provide educational seminars on selected workers’ compensation topics. As our organization grew, we sought to include defense attorneys, rehabilitation counselors, interpreters, medical providers, and attorney support services. In order to better serve our community, we have reorganized ourselves as Latino Comp.
