A Bay Area native, Deirdre Mochel has spent her entire career in employment law, gathering significant trial and appellate experience with workers’ compensation claims. Her practice at Boxer+Gerson is focused solely on representing injured workers at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.
From a young age, Deirdre was drawn to situations where she could help others. This natural inclination compelled her to enter the legal field, where she could achieve tangible results for people who found themselves in tough circumstances.
Deirdre earned her undergraduate degree from University of California, Davis, where she interned with both the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) and the Women’s Health Initiative national research study — engagements that have given her a unique perspective on health issues that affect today’s workers. At University of San Francisco School of Law, she sharpened her research and writing skills while serving as executive editor of the USF Law Review.
Deirdre enjoys travel, gardening, reading mystery novels, and spending time with her husband and two children.
