History of the Long Beach Law Firm of Cantrell Green Los Angeles, Long Beach, Anaheim, Workers Compensation Lawyers

Founding Partners –

Marilyn Green and Dick Cantrell formed Cantrell and Green in 1971, a law firm devoted to the representation of disabled workers. While other firms were turning to advertising to boost business, Dick and Marilyn trusted in the long-term rewards of referrals from satisfied clients. They built the most respected workers’ compensation firm in the Long Beach area and, as time passed, one of the most respected in California. It was their conviction, one that prevails today, that our firm’s success depends on our ability to give our clients the best legal representation possible.  Although Mr. Cantrell died in 1992 and Mrs. Green in 2015, their belief in protecting the rights of injured workers lives on in each of our attorneys.

Don Pekich was invited to become a partner at Cantrell and Green in 1981. He, Marilyn Green and Dick Cantrell created a unique team of legal representatives with varied backgrounds in union representation, as well as being endorsed and recommended by numerous law enforcement and firefighter organizations throughout California. Mr. Pekich retired in 2005 but still joins us frequently to exchange thoughts on current law and politics, and occasionally can be seen handling a deposition if our attorneys are caught in a calendar conflict that cannot be avoided.

It is our hope that the Cantrell, Green firm today continues the decades long tradition of the best possible legal representation at a time when an injured worker desperately needs help navigating an ever-growing and complex system that is not designed to be “user-friendly.”
