Goldberg Segalla’s national Workers’ Compensation practice continued to expand with the addition of two senior members on both sides of the firm’s bicoastal footprint: partner Danny Benavides in Orange County and special counsel William V. Morrison in Albany.
Danny has nearly 20 years of experience representing employers and insurance carriers in all aspects of workers’ compensation matters. He has focused much of his career on defending various MLB and NFL teams in high-value professional sports claims, and brings significant client service capabilities to Goldberg Segalla’s powerhouse Sports and Entertainment and Workers’ Compensation team based in Southern California. Outside of his practice, Danny is involved in multiple legal and professional organizations, and currently serves as president of the Hispanic National Bar Association. Danny earned his bachelor’s degree from California State University, Fullerton, and his juris doctor magna cum laude from the University of LaVerne College of Law. During law school, Danny clerked for the San Bernardino Public Defender in the Homicide Defense Unit, where he focused on immigration and criminal law matters.
Bill represents a wide variety of employers, insurers, and carriers in workers’ compensation matters throughout New York. Outside of his practice, he is involved in multiple legal and professional organizations, including the New York State Bar Association and the National Association of Disability Representatives. Bill earned his bachelor’s degree at the Appalachian State University and his juris doctor at the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he gained experience as the editorial board and associate editor of the Thomas M. Cooley Journal of Practice and Clinical Law.
