True story about Gina’s life:

“It actually started in 1986 when my mother had a work injury. The impact on our family was profound. I saw first-hand the impact of a work injury to a family unfamiliar with the legal system. We were worried about my Mom, she was hurting, disabled from work and needed medical treatment. Stress, pain and loss of income with uncertainty is traumatic.

It is my goal to help injured workers to get back on their feet, guide them through the process and win the compensation they are due.”
