"Tyrone is hands down the BEST subrogation attorney that I have worked with. He has a complete understanding of the California Workers Compensation system and how it works when pursuing recovery via subrogation in order to get the best possible financial outcome."
"Not many of us have a passion for subrogation, but Tyrone is one of these people. It is without hesitation that I recommend Tyrone because of this passion and the results he obtains for us. Tyrone also does a good job of keeping his costs down and is always very responsive to all of our communications. Tyrone has an excellent working knowledge of California Workers' Compensation which goes hand in hand with our subrogation efforts. Tyrone is an excellent attorney, one which I don't hesitate in recommending."
