Mr. Kamin subsequently returned to California in 2007 to report on the latest developments in workers’ compensation law at WorkCompCentral, a national workers’ compensation news publication.

Mr. Kamin interned for John A. Futoran Sr., where he gained valuable insight into governmental workers’ employment law disputes at the Merit Systems Protection Board. Later, Mr. Kamin interned at Creative Dispute Resolution, where he assisted a court-appointed discovery master and gained critical insight into abuses of the civil discovery system.
After being admitted to practice law in the State of California in 2013, Mr. Kamin quickly signed on with the firm of Bradford & Barthel because of its sterling reputation as a leader in California workers’ compensation law.
