Arjuna Farnsworth has always seen the law as a mechanism for helping people and delivering social justice. His earliest exposure to the legal system came through his mother, who worked in the office of noted defense and civil rights attorney Tony Serra. That experience left him with an abiding passion for trial work as the most personally rewarding aspect of his career.
Arjuna represents injured workers who have problems navigating through the often confusing and complex workers’ compensation system. He was the lead counsel in more than 500 cases during his tenure as an associate at Brown & McDevitt in Larkspur, California. Much of his work focuses on representing police officers, firefighters, and other peace officers in workers’ compensation claims. He has become an expert in the expanded benefits available to these professionals who put their well-being and very lives on the line to protect the public. Police officers associations and other unions frequently invite him to give presentations to union staff and members interested in knowing more about this specialized area of the law.
After earning his undergraduate degree in political science from University of California, Santa Barbara, Arjuna went on to graduate from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2003. He joined Boxer & Gerson, LLP in 2006.
