In 1999, Richard Goldman, Paul Magdalin and George Krikes established the “multi-service” law firm of Goldman, Magdalin and Krikes, LLP by opening two offices- Thousand Oaks and San Diego with 9 attorneys. The original philosophy of the firm was to provide premium legal services that offered exceptional value by tailoring cost effective solutions to fit the clients’ needs. GMK still follows that same philosophy.

Today, GMK has 8 locations from Sacramento to San Diego and 57 attorneys, 6 Lien Specialists and 100 professional staff serving our clients with local “hometown” representation in all California Workers’ Compensation venues.

Since its founding, GMK has represented some of the most respected employers, businesses, public entities and insurance companies in California and the United States. Considered one of the most prominent Workers’ Compensation defense firms in California, GMK takes pride in protecting the rights of employers, insurance carriers and Third Party Administrators.

GMK continues to carry out our guiding principles and dedication by offering the highest caliber of legal representation to our clients.
