Our firm represents people from all walks of life. We have long-standing relationships with members of the California Highway Patrol and have been recommended by over twenty local law enforcement and firefighting agencies we work with. We are proud to have represented thousands of public safety officers in personal injury, workers’ compensation cases and public safety industrial disability retirement cases. Satisfied clients have personally referred the vast majority of people we represent.
After we conclude a case, we send our clients a questionnaire in which we ask what we did well and how we can improve our service. Here are some of the things our clients have said as well as some of our success stories:

“The firm did an outstanding job in representing me. They were always on top of the case and kept me fully informed. The case was complex and took years to resolve, and I could not have done it without Chris Dehner.” Harry C.-Controller/Compliance Officer, Brush Prairie, WA
