Erica Wise, Esq.



Welcome to my website! I’m Erica Wise, a dedicated and compassionate attorney representing injured workers in Southern California. With over 19 years of experience within the workers' compensation industry, I have been committed to fighting for the rights and interests of injured and disabled workers.

I started my career as a receptionist and file clerk, gradually ascending the ranks to assume roles of increasing responsibility, progressing from legal secretary to senior paralegal and subsequently attained the position of a hearing representative. Such significant accomplishments culminated in my ultimate achievement of becoming a licensed attorney by the California State Bar.

As a California licensed attorney, I understand the unique challenges that injured workers face when navigating the complex legal system. My mission is to provide personalized and effective legal representation, ensuring that my clients receive the compensation and support they deserve.

Throughout my career, I have handled a wide range of cases, from common basic claims to more intricate issues like catastrophic injuries, traumatic brain injuries and fibromyalgia/chronic regional pain syndrome. I have effectively managed a diverse range of workers' compensation matters on behalf of employees across various employers, including Unified School Districts, law enforcement officers, safety members, City and County employees, union employees, field technicians, nurses, and medical assistants. This extensive experience encompasses both blue-collar and white-collar employees across Southern California.

I firmly believe that every case is unique, and I approach each case with meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of the law. My journey in advocating for injured workers began years ago when I witnessed the injustices faced by individuals who were struggling to recover from workplace accidents. Inspired by their resilience, I made it my mission to provide a voice for those who needed it most.

When you choose me as your attorney, you can expect unwavering dedication, personalized attention, and a commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for your case. I take the time to listen to your story, understand your concerns, and develop a tailored strategy that addresses your specific needs.

I believe in open and transparent communication, and I make it a priority to keep my clients informed about the progress of their cases every step of the way. I understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that a workplace injury can have on your life, which is why I strive to provide not only legal guidance but also emotional support during this challenging time. I make it a priority to ensure that my clients possess an honest and accurate realistic understanding of the expectations surrounding their workers' compensation case. I take much pride on creating an organized and efficient approach, aimed at effectively advancing my clients’ cases towards a favorable settlement.

In addition to my extensive experience in workers' compensation law, I have established affiliations with various esteemed workers' compensation organizations and actively participate in an array of seminars, conferences, and lectures hosted by notable entities. I am currently serving on the board as Secretary for the Los Angeles Valley Applicants' Attorney Association (LAVAAA) and am a member on the Regulations/Legislative committee of the California Applicants' Attorney Association (CAAA).

In addition, I have assumed a pivotal role in organizing seminars focused on treating physicians and other medically-oriented aspects of workers' compensation. I have had the privilege of serving as a panelist in numerous seminars, where I have engaged in insightful discussions regarding emerging laws and trends within the workers' compensation industry. I have also had the distinct opportunity to produce two radio shows on Talk Radio 790 KABC—one dedicated to legal matters and the other centered around medical aspects.

Beyond my professional achievements, I am deeply committed to giving back to the community. I actively participate in local initiatives that aim to improve workplace safety and protecting the rights of injured workers. I believe that everyone deserves a safe and fair work environment, and I am dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of my clients and the community as a whole.

Thank you for visiting my website. If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, I am here to help. Please reach out to schedule a consultation, and let's begin the journey towards obtaining the justice and compensation you deserve.
