Senior Partner, Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law at D’Andre Law
Bernard Finnegan began his career in workers’ compensation in 1992. After passing the California Self-Insurance Examination, he gained experience working with public agencies and private self-insured clients as a third-party administrator. It was during this time that he became familiar with complex insurance transactions. In 1999, he sought a career change and attended USF School of Law while continuing to work in claims during the summers.
Upon graduation, Mr. Finnegan began his career at D’Andre Law. He focused his attention on complex issues involving the CA Insurance Guarantee Association, the Uninsured Employers Benefits Trust Fund, and the interplay of claims with employment law issues. As a long-time member of the San Francisco Insurance Claims Association, Mr. Finnegan has given numerous presentations ranging from Workers’ Compensation 101 to detailed analyses of both SB 863 and 899. He has handled every aspect of claim litigation up to filing Writs of Review.
