Valley Law Group, PC

California Workers' Compensation Law

Our Areas of Expertise

Workers’ Compensation Litigation

We handle all types of California workers’ compensation cases including specific injuries, cumulative trauma, and occupational disease cases from discovery through trial and appeal.

Serious & Willful and
132a Claims

In addition to general workers’ compensation cases, we also provide representation in serious & willful and 132a claims made directly
against employers.

Subrogation/Civil Litigation

Our civil litigation experience enables us to represent clients in subrogation matters involving third-party negligence. Our clients find that having one law firm handle all issues lowers the cost of representation.

Lien Resolution

Beyond the case in chief, we have significant experience in negotiating, resolving, and litigating
medical treatment, interpreting,
and medical-legal liens.

About Our Firm

After more than a decade of experience in workers’ compensation defense, Joel Campbell founded Valley Law Group in 2015, with the goal of providing his clients the best representation available in Central California. Six years later we continue to provide our loyal clients with responsive service and quality representation unmatched in the industry. We handle matters throughout the San Joaquin Valley including Bakersfield, Fresno, and Stockton, and occasionally handle matters for our clients along the Central Coast, in both Salinas and San Luis Obispo.

Our team utilizes cutting edge technology, and each of our support staff has decades of experience, enabling us to provide clients with timely, efficient, and economical service. We know that not every case requires full litigation, and are often able to find creative solutions to move matters forward, thereby saving time, costs and headaches. Finally, our long term presence in the community, the relationships we’ve fostered over the years, and our reputation for honesty and integrity give us the leverage we need to work with the opposing attorneys and provide the bests results for our clients.
