The founder of his eponymous law firm, Jeffrey L. Tade divides his practice primarily between workers’ compensation matters and personal injury and wrongful death litigation. He also has experience in workplace discrimination and other employment law disputes. From his firm’s offices in Salinas, California, the city where he grew up, Mr. Tade provides representation to clients in the surrounding areas and other parts of the state.

In his workers’ compensation practice, Mr. Tade represents people who have been injured on the job or who have contracted an occupational disease and who are seeking their rightful benefits under their employer’s insurance coverage. His assistance commences with helping prepare the initial claim, helping to ensure that it contains all required information and that it is filed on a timely basis. In the event that the claim is disputed or denied, Mr. Tade appears on their behalf at subsequent appeals proceedings.

Mr. Tade also represents people who have been harmed due to the negligence or recklessness of other parties. His caseload in this regard has encompassed motor vehicle crashes, pedestrian knockdowns, defective products, premises liability and construction site accidents caused by a nonemployer third party. Over the years, Mr. Tade has been able to recover substantial compensation for his plaintiff clients through both jury awards and negotiated settlements.

Mr. Tade attended the University of California, Los Angeles, where he earned dual bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and economics. He remained in Westwood for his legal education at the UCLA School of Law, and in 1986, he was awarded his Juris Doctor. Mr. Tate is admitted to practice before all California state courts as well as before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Eastern, Central and Southern Districts of California.
