Irene Bowdry, Esq

Ms. Bowdry became licensed to practice law in the State of California in 1998 and became a Certified Specialist, Workers' Compensation, State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization in 1999. After a brief period of practicing intellectual property, Ms Bowdry began her extensive career of defending workers' compensation claims with State Compensation Insurance Fund in 1989. In 1991, Ms. Bowdry entered private practice which led to the establishment of her firm in 1997.

Ms. Bowdry has enjoyed the experience of having numerous Petitions for Removal granted. One case in particular allowed numerous applicant cases to be joined and transferred to one Board in order to allow one Judge to review the impact of Workers' Compensation fraud issues. Subsequently, legislation was enacted to codify this procedure under Title 8 California Code of Regulations, Section 10591. Ms. Bowdry was also instrumental in having a case published, which established the defense of apportionment in psychiatric claims by using the Work Function Impairment categories applied to pre-existing, non-industrial psyche symptoms/impairment by subtracting the pre-existing impairments from the industrial impairments.

Years of experience have facilitated successful outcomes at the trial level and with the Court of Appeals.

Aside from the extensive knowledge  and understanding of California Workers' Compensation Laws, in 2005 Ms. Bowdry was presented with an award of Business Woman of the Year by the National Republican Congressional Committee, U.S. Representative Tom Reynolds and President George W. Bush. Ms. Bowdry understands each business has its own unique personality and the necessity of being cognizant of the characteristics, philosphies and policies that create the fabric of each business in order to provide the best quality of service for the client.

The associates and support staff promote the firm philosophies by providing
exemplary client services. Resumes are provided upon request.
