“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do.” — Anonymous
The MB&A family is excited to announce and celebrate MB&A’s Workers’ Compensation Department’s recognition for 7 years running in the Super Lawyers Rising Stars designation. Specifically, Carina Izakelian, Esq. and Timothy Chan, Esq. both continue to give their all in the noble pursuit of Recovery for the Injured. They relentlessly and tirelessly battle a system of insurance denials, delays and injustice. Through diligent hard work, persistence and unwavering dedication, they truly are changing the lives of those in need, one person at a time.
The celebration doesn’t stop there. A very special recognition was in order for the founder and managing attorney of MB&A, Michael Burgis Esq. Mr. Burgis is the ONLY Workers’ Compensation attorney to make the coveted Up-and-Coming 100: 2020 Southern California Rising Stars magazine by Thomson Reuters! This is a testament to Mr. Burgis’ skill, passion and dedication to vindicating the rights of the injured. Bravo!
The Rising Stars designation is reserved for ONLY the top 2.5% of attorneys in their respective practice areas. In all of Southern California, only 32 attorneys made the Workers’ Compensation “2020 Rising Stars” list. Of all Workers’ Compensation 2020 Rising Stars, roughly 10% of them are from the MB&A family! And finally, of ALL Southern California Rising Stars in 2020, Mr. Burgis is among the Top 100. We are proud and honored to work side by side with these brilliant attorneys. Each of them are “crazy enough” to know they are changing the world to be more just for us all. They are an unstoppable force for positive change especially now when we need them most.
