Learn More About Smolich and Smolich from Attorney James Smolich

“Our firm has been in existence for 50 years and has represented union members since its start.

I was a member of International Longshoreman and Warehouseman’s Union Local 17. My brother Rob, who is my partner, was a member of Construction Laborers Union Local 185. We not only represent union workers, but we also have a long history of being part of Northern California unions.

We are familiar with union medical and pension benefits and can counsel our clients about those important issues. Many union members face complex issues involving work-related injuries and disabilities, and how they affect their medical eligibility, disability retirement, State Disability, and Social Security Disability benefits. We advise and represent our clients in these matters to allow them to make important decisions about their and their family’s future.

Union construction workers and teamsters often sustain injuries caused by the negligence of others. They may have personal injury claims in addition to workers compensation benefits. Complex issues arise out of the two overlapping systems, and our firm has specialized in representing clients in this type of case for over 50 years. This experience is critical in maximizing our client’s recovery.

Smolich and Smolich is a law firm for hard-working people. Union member clients are the foundation of our firm.”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”
