Our firm was founded by our father and mentor Virgil Jackson in 1971 in the mid-wilshire area of Los Angeles, California. He was able to use the knowledge he had gained working for insurance companies to help victims of accidents obtain fair compensation for their injuries. Over the years he continued to focus his practice on helping injury victims, particularly those with work injuries. He earned an excellent reputation among his peers, judges and court personnel as a compassionate and tenacious advocate who fought tough yet fairly to obtain the full measure of compensation for his clients. Mr. Jackson’s excellent reputation for results quickly spread throughout Los Angeles and surrounding counties and his practice flourished with most of his clients being referred by other clients.
Regardless how big or small the case, our attention to detail, highly efficient office staff and years of experience results in consistently higher case settlements and judicial awards.
In 1993 Mr. Jackson’s oldest son, Gary, became a California state licensed attorney and joined his father’s firm. After two years working for his father, Gary became a partner and the firm name was changed to Jackson & Jackson. Gary focused on the litigation work for the firm attending a majority of the firms court appearances, settlement conferences and trials. This allowed Mr. Jackson to spend more time in the office handling the day to day operations of running the firm.
In 1995 Mr. Jackson’s youngest son, Derek, became a California State licensed attorney and joined the family law firm as an associate. By 1998 Derek also became a partner of the firm. Derek also focused on the firms litigation work attending court appearances, settlement conferences or trials on a daily basis. In addition to his busy litigation schedule Derek was also learning the day to day operations of running the firm.
The Jackson family of lawyers has worked hard to create a company I can trust to provide great service. They are one of the premier law firms representing injured workers in this state. Their commitment to superior service and excellence sets them apart from their competition.

In 1997 Mr. Jackson opened a second office in the Coachella Valley, East of Palm Springs, California while Gary and Derek continued to run the Los Angeles office. In the winter of 1998 the decision was made to relocate the firm to Long Beach, California so that the firm would be more centrally located to both their Los Angeles and Orange County clients.
Today the work injury Law Offices of Jackson & Jackson continues its long tradition of excellent personalized service to each of their clients. Gary and Derek understand that every person is unique and so too is each case. Rather than a cookie-cutter approach to the practice of law Gary and Derek understand that it is vital to personally meet with each client prior to taking on representation to learn that client’s individual needs and set up a “game-plan” to meet those needs. For example some clients need to return to their pre- injury occupation regardless of the extent of the injury while others want to obtain job retraining to a new line of work.
At the work injury Law Offices of Jackson & Jackson a California State licensed attorney in good standing will represent you through out your case. We do not use paralegals or "hearing representatives" as so many other firms do. We believe that the practice of workers' compensation law is too complex for your claim to be handled by a non-attorney. This is one of the reasons why our client's get great results.
It does not cost any more to have an attorney represent you rather than a paralegal or a "hearing Rep". So why would you want anyone other than an attorney handling your case?
Our company is based on the belief that our client's needs come first. Our entire team of attorneys and support staff are committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat clients and referrals.
We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust, put our years of experience to work for you and provide you the personal and expert legal attention your case deserves.
