Jonathan D. Char is an associate attorney in the Workers’ Compensation department at Mastagni Holstedt, APC. His tenacity personifies the competitive spirit at Mastagni Holstedt, APC. Although he strictly practices Workers’ Compensation, he is a Certified Public Accountant and his background in business lends enhanced vision and problem-solving to his practice in Workers’ Compensation.
Jonathan’s full, frank and direct approach in litigation allows for an efficient, effective and economic resolution of work-related injuries for all laborers including state and local public safety. His knowledge and efforts vindicated individuals with injuries previously denied. He has been recognized as a Top Lawyer in Sacramento Magazine and a Rising Star Honoree with Super Lawyers Northern California.
His advocacy against work-injury discrimination led to a noteworthy panel decision that explained the alter ego doctrine may be warranted in a Labor Code § 132a claim where under the circumstances, to do otherwise would promote a fraud or injustice against an injured worker. Put another way, after a Sacramento trial judge ruled against him, Jonathan successfully appealed and established limited liability can be set aside in a Labor Code § 132a discrimination claim.
