Personal injuries can occur in many different settings from many different causes. Unfortunately, they can forever change a person's life, and their families' lives, with ongoing physical and emotional pain, physical restrictions and loss of work and income. In the most extreme situations, a person's life may have been lost. I have a unique understanding of "both sides" on these civil actions because I spent the first eight years of my practice as a defense attorney handling severe personal injury and product liability cases representing insurance companies, corporations and other defendants. Although I still handle defense cases, my injury practice for the last 18 years has been primarily centered on representing the injured person.

I have successfully litigated and tried to jury verdict actions involving all types of personal injuries, particularly involving the back, neck and head, but also including elder & disabled persons abuse claims, assault and battery incidents, and defamation, to name a few. I have litigated, settled or tried to jury verdict personal injury cases for both plaintiffs and defendants in over 22 counties in the Superior Courts of California, as well as the Northern & Eastern District Federal Courts. On my clients' plaintiff cases, I have achieved numerous recoveries in excess of $1,000,000, and I estimate that over the last 26 years on over 300 cases, I have obtained gross recoveries totaling over $10 million.  

I always offer a "FREE" consultation to prospective clients to see if I can help you and to let you know what your options may be.  In large law firms, many times the client's injury case is bounced around to a number of different lawyers who have less experience than the named partners but who still charge a very high fee for services due to their firm's high overhead expenses.  In comparison, as a sole practitioner, I offer a very competitive "Contingency Fee" arrangement for my clients so that you do not pay any attorney fees unless we obtain a recovery, and I provide direct, personal attention to your case. I also gladly pay referral fees to attorneys consistent with CSB, Rules of Professional Conduct 2-200. I'm here to help you. Please call or email me to schedule a meeting.
