Building Upon A Long Legacy Of Service To Injured Workers
Attorney Ben Helfman took my case several weeks after I was injured 5 1/2 years ago. My injuries resulted in 3 surgeries, including a knee replacement and a major back surgery, as well as several other procedures. I was not in physical shape, nor the mood, to deal with the insurance company. Mr. Helfman was very professional and prompt in dealing with my case and his office and staff were easy to contact. His staff was always very courteous and friendly throughout. Mr. Helfman recently guided my case to a very fair settlement and with his involvement, I had no problem being compensated by the insurance during my ordeal. I am totally satisfied and highly recommend Ben Helfman to anyone. You’ll be in good hands!— Ray Urquhart
“I am very blessed to have Ben Helfman as my lawyer. Thank you Ben: I would be homeless. I’m very lucky because my first lawyer quit me. My case has not been very easy. Ben Helfman is a real trooper. I would refer to Ben Helfman. He is very professional at his job. Thank you.” – Troy Cook

“My story began when I was injured at work. My severe chronic pain was getting me down and I was very frustrated because my employer wasn’t reporting all of my wages. Many times I called my employer’s Human Resource Department in Sacramento which compounded my situation trying to correct the amount of income. My calls were never returned. That’s when I looked up work comp attorneys in the phone book. The truth is, I prayed and asked the Lord to help me. My eyes went right to Benjamin Helfman and it was the easiest and best decision ever. My injuries were numerous and serious. Many surgeries with severe pain and depression. During the course of my case, I was sent 4 times to Sacramento to an agreed-on work comp doctor. Each time I saw him he told me Ben Helfman knows medical and his clients file better than any other attorney. He also told me Ben Helfman is the best attorney that has ever taken his deposition. Ben Helfman understands chronic severe pain and depression and he arranged for me to see the best doctors and therapists. You may ask yourself, why do I need an attorney? Having a work comp injury means you will be flooded with paperwork that needs a response in a very timely way. Ben Helfman and his entire team took all of it off my plate. His entire team took very good care of me. They also facilitated all my surgeries without one denial and made sure all my paperwork was answered, filed, authorizations were completed and never a piece of paper lost. Ben Helfman always calls you back no matter what. It’s just incredible that I was never denied anything that was requested. That in itself is just amazing. Worker’s Compensation laws are ever-changing. The thing you need to know for sure when you choose Ben Helfman for your attorney and that is this; he isn’t “practicing” law, he knows the California Worker’s Compensation laws completely. Trying to navigate your own case would be a disaster. Just trying to keep up with court filings, appeals, referrals, negotiations and making sure your disability payments are based on all your wages including bonuses and overtime. Personally, I absolutely could not have represented myself due to the chronic severe pain combined with the depression I experienced. Being out of work suddenly from an injury presents challenges like paying bills. It takes a toll after a while that’s why I would refer any California injured worker to Ben Helfman’s office. He will take very good care of you and protect you and knows your rights. Ben Helfman, of course, won my work comp case and assisted in my getting approved for Social Security Disability on my first try. I feel as though I owe Ben Helfman and his entire team much more than his fee. He’s brilliant and he was my answer to prayer.” – Barbara Eatmon, formerly from Anderson, CAI was until recently a client of Leep, Tescher, Helfman and Zanze. Mr. Benjamin K. Helfman was my lawyer. This is a testimonial to his excellence as a Workers’ Compensation attorney. Benjamin was caring, fair and easy to talk to. No questions were too small or too simple for him to answer over the many years he worked for and with me on my case. He did a great job working on and ultimately settling my case and I am very happy with the generous settlement he was able to negotiate for me. I would recommend Benjamin K. Helfman to anybody contemplating starting, or already involved in, a workers’ compensation claim. I doubt that you will be able to beat his professionalism, compassion and commitment to your case and needs during the entire process. Thank you, Benjamin, you are the best! — Marge Buechner
