What We Do

The Next Generation of Great Trial Lawyers.

We prosecute major lawsuits. From the initial client meeting, to extensive case planning, through investigation, discovery, and selection of expert witnesses, everything we do is done to prepare for trial. We know that there are no short cuts and no easy settlements. We prepare for trial to maximize the result be it by way of settlement or verdict.

We Take Every Case Personally.

We are highly selective in the cases that we handle which allows us to immerse completely in each client’s story. We take no short cuts.  We prepare every case for trial and take more verdicts than most firms in Los Angeles.

We Never Act Under the Influence of Fear.

We have earned an impeccable reputation among the lawyers and judges in California, who along with prior clients, refer us all of our cases. We follow the American Board of Trial Advocates code of civility and ethics and strive to preserve the right to jury trial in California and throughout the United States.
