Rocha & Schmidt


In 2007, our daughter had a stroke at work while driving a delivery truck for UPS. The stroke left her with partial paralysis and speech difficulties that made it impossible for her to work, or adequately care for herself. Her initial Workman’s Compensation claim was denied because the stroke was considered a non-job related injury. After meeting with Ms. Schmidt, she contacted UPS and was able to aggressively negotiate a structure settlement for our daughter that is payable for life. This settlement seemed like a miracle to us. It made it possible for our daughter to receive the speech and physical therapy required for her continued care and recovery.

Ms. Schmidt is the perfect blend of professionalism and caring. Even though speech is difficult for our daughter, Ms. Schmidt made sure to include her in al meetings and insured she understood all issues. She, was kind, compassionate, thorough and effective, and, she continues to be available to us for any questions or concerns we may have. We will continue to recommend Ms. Schmidt to anyone who needs help with Workman’s Compensation issues.

With much gratitude,

K.B. and Family

I want to take the time to share my profound Respect and Admiration for Kelli Schmidt. She has been my Lawyer for the last 5 years. She and her Staff work hard for her Clients and she is always available, professional and honest in every way.
Kelli is highly motivated for the Defense and interest of her Clients. She has kept me updated with all the aspects of my Case and the People I have recommended to her, feel the same. She sure is a fighter for her Clients rights.


I am writing this testimonial, as a client, concerning my favorable experience dealing with Mr. Robert Rocha in handling my complicated Workman Compensation Claim. Mr. Rocha worked quickly and effectively in all aspects of my claim, which lead to a prompt and just settlement. Mr. Rocha always stayed in close communication with me regarding the various legal matters as they unfolded. I was never pressured to make any on the spot decisions, instead Mr. Rocha’s timeline was excellent with regards to allowing enough thinking time and providing the pertinent legal information in order for me to make proper decisions.

If I was to have, in the future, a new Workman Compensation Claim, I wouldn’t hesitate, not for a moment, to seek Mr. Rocha’s help in handling my claim.

Mr. Rocha and his firm represented me in my Workman’s comp case a few years back. They are professional, friendly, honest and most importantly they did an excellent job of representing me with my case.
Mr. Rocha is very knowledgeable with workman’s comp law and was able to answer all my questions and concerns and I had a lot of concerns.
He did such a great job that I have recommended Mr. Rocha over the years to my friends and family.

Thank You Mr. Rocha…

Two years ago I was severely injured in an accident at work. My employer was fighting my Workers Comp claim and I couldn’t get the surgery I needed until my claim was accepted. Robert Rocha handled my case with skill and determination and within a short time, Workers Comp approved my claim. Mr. Rocha negotiated a great settlement for me, much more than I expected. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm to anyone who needs help with a workers comp claim.


My name is [M.P.], and I have been the client of the Rocha & Schmidt Law Firm – specifically that, of the inordinately capable and qualified, Ms. Kelli B. Schmidt – for the better part of the last twelve years.

For that length of time, I have been the extraordinarily fortunate beneficiary of an overwhelming professionalism, and a singular dedication to the cloister and practice of the Law, that is stunningly peerless. I have needed the services of Attorneys in other and varied fields during the last decade, and have considered myself that much more unfortunate that I could not employe the services of Ms. Schmidt and her legal partners, and their colleagues, beyond their current expertise of California Workman’s Compensation Law.
I would whole heartedly recommend the services of Rocha & Schmidt – and those specifically specifically specifically Ms. Schmidt – to anyone in need of the services of what I consider, the premier firm in the practice of Workman’s Compensation Law, in California, today.
