Tiffany A. Speers, Associate

Workers' Compensation

Tiffany Speers launched her legal career on the defense side when she joined Wiggins, Richard & Romano as a law clerk while earning her law degree. After graduating and then passing the bar in 2002, she began working for the firm as an associate attorney — engaged in a full range of litigation for employers, public entities, and third-party administrators, with a special emphasis on appellate work. In 2004, she joined the national defense firm Adelson, Testan, Brundo, Novell & Jimenez in San Francisco as an associate attorney, and was promoted to managing attorney in 2007 and then to managing partner just two years later. Over the years, she formed close relationships with risk managers in various industries, and she often gave input and advice for their litigation programs.

In 2018, she shifted over to the plaintiff side and joined Boxer+Gerson, where she draws on past experience to push claims, advocate for clients, and have a big impact. Tiffany holds her field’s coveted credential of certified workers’ compensation specialist, and her extensive experience in public speaking, education, and litigation management programs has helped enhance the depth and range of services that Boxer+Gerson provides its clients. She believes that, in the workers’ comp community, reputation is paramount — and Boxer+Gerson’s is “as solid as it comes.”

Married to a Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board judge and having a young daughter at home, Tiffany relishes the flexibility that the firm offers its attorneys to lead healthy lives outside the office. For her, not having to choose between work and family makes all the difference.

Tiffany's professional demeanor often mimics that of her family's pet, Dizzy, a tenacious bulldog who does not give up until he gets his way.
