Mr. Jones, Senior Attorney, represents self-insured employers, insurance carriers and public entities in all aspects of workers’ compensation.
Before joining Michael Sullivan & Associates, Mr. Jones was Senior Staff Attorney at Hartford Financial Services Group in Gold River. He represented the company’s insureds in all phases of workers’ compensation litigation, with an eye toward prompt resolution of claims. Among the 90 files he managed were cases involving high exposure on which he worked closely with claims partners and consultants, and developed expertise in Medicare Set-Asides and structured settlement agreements.
As Associate Attorney at Coleman, Chaves & Associates in Roseville, Mr. Jones also practiced workers’ compensation defense and appeared before WCABs throughout Northern California. In addition to the demands of litigation, Mr. Jones generated new business for the firm through strong client relations. Prior to that experience, as Associate Attorney at Mullen & Filippi in Sacramento, Mr. Jones handled approximately 80 workers’ compensation defense files. He became expert in assessing risk and exposure, and there, too, maintained strong client communications.
Mr. Jones began his legal career as a Law Clerk at Mastagni, Holstedt, Amick, Miller, Johnsen in Sacramento before being promoted to Associate Attorney representing applicants in all aspects of their workers’ compensation claims. He was responsible for managing approximately 150 files.
Mr. Jones received his Juris Doctor, with distinction, from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, where he was on the Dean’s Honor List and became a member of the Traynor Honor Society. He also received the Barrister and James Foundation scholarships, and served as an Extern for both the Office of the California Attorney General and the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Jones received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Davis.
