Plumtree & Associates also is experienced with CSLB license defense.  A contractor should always be represented when a complaint is made against its license with the CSLB.

Finally, Plumtree & Associates has recently expanded its practice area to include representing construction businesses and construction employers in all areas of workers compensation.

Our firm decided to expand our practice into workers compensation after being asked by several clients to defend them in workers compensation lawsuits. Each time, we asked why. They told us that they wanted to utilize our knowledge of construction to limit their liability. In one case we were able to show that an employee was anything but truthful. I utilized the building permit to show the construction project was at a different phase then what the employee testified to in his deposition. 

These areas include

 -Serious and Willful Misconduct Claims 

 -Uninsured Workers Compensation Defense 

 -Labor Code Violations Under Section 132a 

 -Claims Against Self-Insured Construction Contractors

 -Insurance Defense.
