What Our Clients Say

DirectorWorkers’ Compensation

Justin Farhang is the C&R Whisperer! He keeps settlement in sight from day one on our cases, and sometimes that’s all the time he needs to get it done!

Claims ExaminerSedgwick

Mark Thomas and Kegel Tobin and Truce in its entirety are one of my favorite firms to work with as a claims examiner. The attorneys at the firm always provide a very clear and concise recommendation on case handling. The firm is a great resource to all claims handling staff in California.

Steven D.Applicant’s Attorney

Dovan Calumpang is a skilled attorney, smart advocate and a good negotiator who keeps you on your heels.

I am very pleased with the services that Gabe Quintanilla has provided for our team. He is always available via phone or email, which is something that I really appreciate. He has been able to shut down many of my claims in a short amount of time. I know that my client is also pleased with his aggressive approach in resolving claims.
