Representing Police Officers And Firefighters In Workers’ Comp Cases
Residents throughout Ventura County and Santa Barbara County have you to thank for maintaining their safety on a daily basis.

Kinsler, has extensive legal experience navigating the complex process required by area municipalities. His success in representing police officers, firefighters and wildfire fighters in their claims appeals has resulted in his clients’ receiving maximum compensation for their injuries in minimum time.
