CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

Elverta Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer


Elverta is a town in Sacramento County that blends country and city in an atmosphere from days gone by but with the conveniences of modern times. The population is 5,791 as of 2019, which gives locals a chance to know their neighbors, unlike metropolitan areas. However, it isn’t far to travel to Sacramento, Roseville, or Arden-Arcade.

Conveniently located between California State Route 99 and Interstate 80, local residents can enjoy the offerings of the cities surrounding it as well as Yosemite National Park and two of California’s best national forests. Since nearby urban areas are becoming more congested, accidents are more common.
