Attorney Profile

George J. Savin Jr. is a California native who has spent the past 40-plus years of his life seeking justice for injured workers and their families. Before establishing Savin Bursk Law, he worked at several other private practices where he sharpened his experience and trial skills for workers' compensation cases. Now, he primarily serves clients in Encino, Granada Hills and the rest of LA County, as well as Simi Valley.

In 1970, Mr. Savin completed a criminology degree at Cal State University Long Beach. He then moved to Kansas, where he completed his law degree at Washburn University School of Law in 1973. He is licensed to practice in both states, but after serving as an assistant district attorney for two years after completing his law degree, he moved back to California.

In 1983, Mr. Savin and his wife opened The Law Offices of Savin & Bursk. Together, they have tackled some of California's most high-profile cases, which have impacted workers' comp laws in the state. Mr. Savin has appealed several cases in the California Supreme Court and in Sacramento. He has also represented hundreds of clients at the Workers Compensation Appeals Board. Not surprisingly, during his career, he has recovered millions in awards for his clients.

Even outside of work, Mr. Savin remains active in the legal field. He is a member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, the California Applicants Attorney Association and the San Fernando Valley Bar Association. He is AV Preeminent peer-review rated* through Martindale-Hubbell, has a “Superb” rating on Avvo and has received numerous other accolades from his peers.
