Boxer & Gerson attorney Julius Young’s workers’ comp blog has been named one of the Top 25 Blogs by the LexisNexis Workers’ Compensation Law Center.

Young’s blog at www.workerscompzone.com focuses on workers’ compensation law and its politics and culture in a lively and informative style. Young is a straightforward and down-to-earth writer who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his web writing. His entries contain timely information on the behind-the-scenes political machinations that influence legislation and the effects it has on workers.

“Workers’ comp is a big political and legal battleground in California,” said Young. “The law has been in a process of major upheaval. I try to track its important developments and trends, and to do it within the larger context of the California economy and culture.”

The LexisNexis Workers’ Compensation Law Center is a Web site for the workers’ compensation community and provides commentary, blogs, news headlines, podcasts, top cases and other features. Its “Top 25 Blogs” honorees include blogs from around the country on a wide variety of workers’ comp topics.

These blogsites always show us how workplace issues interact with politics and culture. Moreover, they demonstrate how bloggers can impact the world of workers’ compensation and workplace issues.”

Young has been writing his blog since December, 2006. A partner in the Boxer & Gerson firm since 1988, he has focused primarily on workers’ compensation and Social Security disability cases and has established a reputation as an excellent negotiator and trial lawyer. Young was appointed as a judge pro tem by the Presiding Workers’ Compensation Judge in Oakland, allowing him to serve as a settlement conference judge at the request of the court. He has lectured on workers’ compensation to numerous professional groups and unions and has authored op-ed articles in newspapers, in addition to contributing many legal advice articles and podcasts to his blog.
