In 1996, Mr. Sax earned his Juris Doctorate from Whittier Law School. He has worked exclusively in the field of workers’ compensation since completing law school and being admitted to the State Bar of California.
Mr. Sax is a strong and forceful advocate for insurance carriers and employers, obtaining cost-effective case resolutions on many cases while having also achieved numerous “take nothing” awards.
Mr. Sax also has extensive experience in defending 132a claims, Almaraz/Guzman cases in which the applicant’s attorney has attempted to increase the value of permanent disability, and Ogilvie cases where there is an attempt to show the applicant has sustained a diminished future earning capacity due to the work related injury. Gary Sax has also been successful in filing a Petition for Reconsideration in challenging awards of increased permanent disability in Almaraz/Guzman cases by asserting the judge had not followed the proper standards to allow the increase in the rating and value.
Mr. Sax also is effective in defending against lien claimants, going to trial on liens, and has taken numerous classes in lien resolution. His knowledge of the official medical fee schedule proves useful in lien resolution, negotiations, and taking the lien to trial when necessary.
