Leonor C Gonzales

West Covina, California

I was born in Mexico and immigrated to the United States at age 6. I taught elementary school for four years before attending the University of San Diego School of Law. I began my legal career working with the Legal Aid Foundation of Orange County and practiced in the area of government benefits, family law, landlord-tenant law and consumer law for approximately six years. Thereafter, I practiced personal injury law for approximately three years before commencing my longest part of my legal career practicing in the workers' compensation field. I have been practicing in the workers' compensation field for approximately 14 years now.

I love the challenge of finding a new way of viewing a case, of pushing every possible solution to the often difficult issues that arise in the workers' compensation area. My client can always be satisfied that as their attorney that I pulled every stop to obtain the best results for them.
