The Team

LYO FIGUEROA

Attorney

Lyo clerked for the Honorable William Monroe in Orange County Superior Court while attending Whittier Law School. After graduating in 2006 with honors, he specialized in civil litigation and employment law before opening up his own practice in 2010 to focus on workers’ compensation so that he could help hardworking people get what they deserved. Born and raised in Santa Ana, it is important for Lyo to be able to bring his smart, savvy, and caring approach back to the community and give a voice to those that are often unrecognized for their contribution to the workforce. Additionally, Lyo also practices personal injury and is proud to serve anyone who needs legal representation. He is a former President of the Orange County Hispanic Bar Association, an active member of the California Applicant’s Attorney Association, and was recognized as a Rising Star in 2019 Super Lawyers Magazine. Lyo loves to spend his spare time with his family and volunteers as a basketball and soccer coach in Irvine, California.

JEANNIE WONG

Hearing Representative, Juris Doctor

Jeannie entered the workers’ compensation arena in 1987 when she joined California’s largest workers’ compensation insurance company, State Compensation Insurance Fund. After gaining invaluable experience, she entered the med-legal industry where she served as a marketing liaison between applicant attorneys and physicians. She discovered that her heart was for the underdog and she went to law school at Chapman Law to finesse her skills. She joined the applicant side of workers’ compensation in 1998 and has never looked back, relishing the opportunity to advocate for the injured worker. In her spare time, she plays Texas hold’em and is an NBA aficionado.

She has a deep understanding of the working culture and industries of California, and leverages this knowledge for her work. She is a team player and understands the importance of all tasks, big or small. She loves the feeling of accomplishment that comes from helping real-life people while growing and improving every day.

CRISTINA GARCIA

Case Manager

Cristina has had a wealth of experience in workers’ compensation having started in the field in 2009. She has predominantly worked on the applicant/injured worker’s side and finds it especially rewarding because of the opportunity to help the Latino community. Since joining the Figueroa Firm in 2014, she has grown into her role as a case manager and is readily able to give her guidance to clients to make their case more understandable and less stressful. In her spare time, Cristina loves to explore new adventures with her daughter Sofia. She is a music and movie enthusiast.
