We are a firm of trial lawyers.

We devote our time to matters which may be expected to wind up in trial before a judge and jury. Contrary to the well-financed (and false) propaganda stating that our population is “lawsuit happy,” our experience is that most people consider litigation only as a last resort. In general, people who have been injured in an accident would rather not be involved in trial and would not do so if they were treated fairly.

Protecting Your Interests and Recovering Damages When You Are Injured.

Each of us expect that people will always act in good faith when we are the innocent victims of another’s wrongdoing. Unfortunately, there are those, including insurance carriers and big businesses, who don’t always act in good faith, and when that happens, you need a personal injury attorney who will protect your interests and recover appropriate compensation for the injuries and damages that have been inflicted upon you.

Since 1967, we have been doing just that. Considered to be one of the best personal injury law firms in the state of California, we have represented thousands of our fellow citizens against some of the biggest, toughest opponents out there. We have tried (and won) cases against all of the major insurance companies, General Motors, Greyhound, the State of California, the United States Government and many, many more. We take our commitment to our clients very seriously.


We worked hard to educate the community.

Not long ago, legislation was introduced to take away the ordinary citizen’s ability to defend against the big money and power of insurance companies and big businesses. We worked hard to educate the community and show how this unfair legislation would limit an injured party’s ability to recover for losses suffered as the result of another’s fault. It would have severely limited the average citizen’s access to the courts while leaving insurance companies, big corporations, and other large organizations unfettered access to the courts and the lawyers of their choosing.

We offer legal counsel and representation in cases involving:

Motorcycle accidents
Truck and Big Rig Accidents
