3 Benefits

of Choosing Our Law Office

Decades in Practice

Most of our attorneys have been practicing law for a decade or more. All members of our team have acted as trial lawyers, so we know how to prepare a case for court and support our clients through a trial and verdict. Because we represent both plaintiffs and defendants, we understand both sides of each case and can develop effective strategies and advice for our clients. 

Courtroom Expertise

While we recognize that in many cases, our clients’ best interests are served by settling disputes, some cases are best resolved through trial. For those cases, our firm can rely on extensive courtroom exposure and the fact we have tried hundreds of cases. We don't just settle for the bottom line. We want to recover nothing less than the maximum compensation you deserve.

Reputation for Success

We are one of the most successful law offices in Walnut Creek and throughout California, and our verdicts and settlements are proof of our impressive results. Many of our cases have ended in multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts, and we are proud members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and other similar, prestigious organizations that speak to our record of success.
