After graduating from UCLA School of Law where he participated in the Moot Court Honors Program, Harold Greene began his career in workers' compensation in 1963 with State Compensation Insurance Fund.� In 1964, Harold opened his own law practice representing injured workers in workers' compensation matters.� In 1974, Harold became one of the first State Bar Certified Workers' Compensation Law Specialists.� He has served on the Board of Governors of the California Applicants' Attorneys Association, and on the Executive Committee of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
Harold Greene is the "founding father" of the Workers' Compensation Law Section of the State Bar of California. Prior to there being a "Section" for workers' compensation, there was only a Standing Committee on workers' compensation with the State Bar. Harold, as Chair of the Committee, convinced the Board of Governors to elevate the Committee to Section status. Harold was active on the Committee from 1985-87 when it became a Section, and then he was active on the Executive Committee of the Section and ultimately Chair from 1989-92. He has also served as an Advisor to the Executive Committee from 1987-89 and again in 1992-93.� From 1994 to the present time, he has been an instructor at the annual workers' compensation law program given at the Sections Education Institute.
Harold was also part of the select committee which created the Judge Pro Tem program for the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board during a time when a hiring freeze and judicial attrition threatened the system.
Harold remains active in his practice. Over the years, he has specialized in representing injured stunt men and women, law enforcement and fire fighting personnel and state correctional officers.� When not representing injured workers, Harold works with his wife Francine in organizing Malibu's annual Chumash Day native American Pow Wow, chairs the Native American Cultural Resources Advisory Committee for the City of Malibu and presides over his local homeowners association.In 2007, the State Bar awarded me a Lifetime Achievement Award.
