Involvement with the legal system usually means something has gone wrong. When this occurs, the stakes of your claim are often very high because the outcome of the case could shape the rest of your life.
Navigating the criminal court system, civil litigation or family law matters can be difficult because there are many special rules and regulations that will affect the outcome of your case. You need to have an advocate guide you through this system, explain your options and protect your rights.

We are passionate about protecting our clients and have earned top Avvo ratings and been recognized as Super Lawyers and among the Best Lawyers in America. With diverse backgrounds and decades of collective legal experience, our attorneys will be there for you, fighting for you until your case is concluded.

Hurt in an Accident?
If you have been hurt by the negligence or failures of another person or company, California law protects you from financial and non-economic loss. You should be “made whole,” or fully compensated, for damages if someone injures you. Our attorneys will assist you in pursuing compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Wrongful death
We know your injuries may make it impossible for you to work or may cause you to incur huge medical expenses. Your injuries or the death of a loved one can also change your life forever. We will fight to help you get the compensation you need so you can move forward. When retained for a personal injury or wrongful death claim, we charge legal fees only if we recover compensation on your behalf.
