Orange County Workers’ Comp Attorneys
Charged with Crime in Referral Scam Scheme
Unfortunately, several workers’ compensation attorneys in Orange County and Los Angeles County were charged with criminal activity this week. According to the Orange County District Attorney’s office, these lawyers were involved in an illegal “referral scheme” affecting predominantly members of the Spanish speaking community.
The ten workers’ comp attorneys who were involved in this scam are now facing felonies (see list of names below*). This is the largest number of lawyers charged in one case in Orange County history.
Lawyers take an oath to conduct themselves with integrity at all times. The vast majority of attorneys take this responsibility very seriously. But when an attorney breaches this duty, it is a betrayal of their clients, and the entire legal profession.
