Gary Lee - San Francisco Workers Compensation Lawyer - Boxer & Gerson Attorneys at Law, LLP

Gary J. Lee


Oakland, California


Long before he became a lawyer and a partner at Boxer & Gerson, Gary Lee developed an interest in employment/labor issues while working for a nonprofit employment agency. During law school at the University of San Francisco, he completed an internship with the National Labor Relations Board, followed at graduation by appointment to a judicial clerkship with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Administrative Law Judges. There he honed his writing skills and was introduced to federal workers’ compensation law.

Gary’s entire legal career has been spent in the employment/labor law field, with nearly 20 years devoted to the field of workers’ compensation law. Originally working as a defense attorney, Gary now exclusively represents injured workers. He is proud to have represented a wide variety of Bay Area workers—ranging from unskilled laborers to tenured college professors—since joining Boxer & Gerson in 2003. He relishes the challenges of serving such a diverse client base.

Gary also enjoys working closely with doctors to understand the medical aspects of each case. With an educational background in science, he readily takes to reading and studying medicine, then utilizing the knowledge he gains to assist his clients.

Gary is active in the Asian community, having volunteered for the Asian Law Caucus, as a member of the Asian-American Bar Association, and serving on the Board of Directors of Asian Psychological Services.
