Manisha Tendulkar is a Senior Associate Attorney in our Inland Empire office. She strongly believes in the importance of client communication and strives to successfully resolve cases in the most cost-effective manner. Manisha specializes in the defense of all issues pertaining to workers’ compensation claims.
Manisha started her career in workers’ compensation defending claims as an Examiner for California State Compensation Insurance Fund. As an Attorney, she has successfully litigated a diverse range of claims through resolution or trial and reconsideration for various clients including third-party administrators, insurance carriers, and self-insured entities. Among the many highlights of her practice: Manisha prevailed on reconsideration on a statute of limitations case, obtained at least two Take Nothing decisions, extensively cross-examined PQMEs to reduce PD in complex cases, and has tried a long-pending old schedule claim from the 70s with a unique issue where the defendant ultimately prevailed on reconsideration.
In her spare time, Manisha enjoys travel and reading. One of her favorite reads is Walden by Henry David Thoreau because it reminds her to live simply and in harmony with nature.
