“…Luncheon Discussions in Smoke-Filled Rooms…”
These days, California is considered to be one of the most employee-friendly
states in the nation; however, it wasn’t always this way. Per the
Historical Evolution of the California Applicants' Attorneys Association,
the early 1960’s were a time when “California languished behind
other industrial states in providing benefits to injured workers,”
adding that legislature was essentially a product of backroom deals between
labor leaders and major employers.
As the years progressed, the organization founded by Harold Wax and other
notable attorneys like Buzz Airola and Victor Beauzay began to make headway
in legislative reform, becoming a “well-oiled legislative battle
machine.” They learned how to properly propose and pass new legislation,
and even retained their own legislative counsel. Years passed and new
faces took office, but CAAA tirelessly adapted to ensure that the rights
of injured workers would be protected – including successfully taking
issues to the Supreme Court.
“We Will Not Give Up!”
The accomplishments of CAAA would be nonexistent if not for the unwavering
dedication and passion exhibited by both its founders and the scores of
attorneys who have carried the torch since. Harold W. Wax is proud that,
through both CAAA and his own practice, The Law Offices of Wax & Wax,
he has been able to definitively make a difference in countless people’s
lives. As a 30-year member of CAAA, Board-Certified Specialist, and Super
Lawyer, Attorney Alan J. Wax is proud to continue the legacy of excellence
set forth by his father.
