Ralph W. Mann


Oakland, California


In his own words, Ralph Mann was “born to be a lawyer.” From risking his own neck in grade school by sticking up for the little guy to battling insurance companies as a partner at Boxer & Gerson, LLP, Ralph has always sided with the underdog. He became an attorney, he says, because, “I can’t stand to see people taken advantage of, especially when they need benefits the most and are at a point in their lives when they can deal with it the least.”

Ralph is a certified workers’ compensation specialist with the California State Bar, representing injured workers caught up in the often confusing and complex workers’ compensation system. He has represented injured workers exclusively since beginning his practice in 1996.

Ralph earned his law degree from the University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law and also holds a master of laws degree from the University of San Diego. Prior to joining Boxer & Gerson, he was an associate at the Law Offices of Stephen Birnbaum.

When not working, he enjoys raising his two young children, as well as playing poker and rooting for his hometown San Diego Chargers football team.
