Do you have a claim?

If you were involved in an accident and as a result suffered an injury inflicted on your body, mind, or emotion, you may have a personal injury claim. If you have been injured, you’re likely overwhelmed with obtaining medical care and financial support—especially if you cannot work. You may also be dealing with insurance companies who want to settle your claim for nothing. Our skilled and experienced team tirelessly fights to help you receive the compensation you deserve.



Our philosophy is quite simple: Your job is to continue to recover and heal. It is our job to handle everything else.

Personal Attention

Each of our Southern California personal injury attorneys strives to provide each and every client with compassion, loyalty, and dedication. We understand that the results of your case have bearing on your peace of mind as well as your financial and medical future.

Participating in litigation is stressful and confusing. With the added layer of needing medical attention, the last thing you want to worry about is navigating the legal system. Part of our responsibility is to guide you through the unfamiliar litigation process . We help you understand each step and consider all of your options, strategies, and the ramifications.

Aggressive Representation

Our tenacious team of attorneys works hard to protect your future. Whether it’s dealing with an insurance adjuster, a defense counsel, or an individual, we treat each case as if it were going to trial. Not only do we focus on the strengths of each case, but we also seek to understand the weaknesses so we can proactively address them. By doing so, we minimize the damages and maximize the benefits and opportunities for our clients.

Meticulous Preparation

Whether negotiating settlement or litigating your case, presenting your strongest case will increase your chances of obtaining a high reward.

Preparing your case from the onset as if it were going to trial means that we must be meticulous and exhaustive from the start. We obtain supporting evidence to prove not only that the defendants caused your accident, but also that the accident proximately caused your injuries. Further, we gather all necessary evidence to prove both your economic (calculable) and non-economic (intangible) damages.

Not only do we collect the necessary documents, but also:

  • Investigate the accident by visiting the scene
  • Obtain the necessary experts
  • Seek any video footage of the accident that may have been captured on a surveillance or traffic camera
  • Preserve any evidence
  • Question witnesses and examine adverse witnesses
  • Obtain information regarding the defendant that may lead to other parties who could also be responsible for your injuries

Comprehensive Review

Our preparation does not stop there. We also look at your case weaknesses and then proactively address them to minimize any damaging affect those weaknesses may have. At trial, we would not wait for the opposing party to bring to light some negative aspect of your case. If the defendant brings out the weak portion of your case, it could appear that you were trying to hide something. However, if you are upfront about your case weaknesses, you have control on how the case weakness is presented and thus minimizing any negative affect.

When negotiating settlement, the insurance company will find weaknesses and use them  support for lowballing an offer for settlement. Keep in mind the insurance company is a private entity that wants to keep its money. By preparing for trial early on, our attorneys are equipped to handle such negotiations and show that we are not afraid of the courtroom. After all, we prepared for trial from the beginning, even if the case could easily be settled, so that we can obtain the best settlement you deserve.
