Anne C. Bobchick is an Senior Associate Attorney in the East Bay area office. She specializes in defending workers’ compensation claims on behalf of employers, insurers and third party administrators.
Anne was admitted to the California State Bar in 1997. Prior to joining Albert and Mackenzie, she practiced workers’ compensation defense for 15 years, and applicant’s work for one year. One year was sufficient for her to realize she was a born defense attorney.
She attended The Johns Hopkins University where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in History. She actually used that degree when she became Director of Research for WNYW News in New York earning multiple nominations and two Emmy Awards. After covering media trials such as John Gotti’s and William Kennedy Smith, she went to Cornell Law School where she received the American Jurisprudence Award in Constitutional Law and graduated in 1997.
As a practicing workers’ compensation defense attorney, Anne has taken multiple cases to trial and obtained “take nothing” awards. She also participates in civil mediations to resolve cases globally. She was the lead attorney in obtaining the Appellate decision in Gatten v. E.L. Yeager an expansion of the Escobedo apportionment decision.
Her mantra is “the only good case is a closed case”, and she pursues this by pushing early resolutions for nuisance value
