Our injury attorneys at have handled thousands of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases throughout California, including, but not limited to:

Why Choose Our Law Firm to Handle Your Case?

There are plenty of attorneys in and around the Fillmore area to help victims who have been seriously injured, so why would you skip over them and come to us? The answer is simple. You need to find a personal injury attorney who deals exclusively in personal injury: A lawyer who not only has the right experience to handle a serious injury lawsuit but also who will fight diligently to get the compensation you are rightly entitled to, rather than one who will quickly settle for the first offer the insurance company tosses your way.

You also need an attorney who can financially support a case to the finish line. Personal injury cases are expensive to pursue in court. That is why most personal injury attorneys are happy to negotiate with insurance companies for you and are quick to recommend that you settle with the insurance company rather than exhaust their financial resources to take your claim to court, which could cost upwards of $150,000 if a case goes to trial. Many attorneys do not have the funds to advance that kind of money.

Remember, most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis – they don't get paid unless, or until, you do. We have the financial resources to take your case to court and work on a contingency basis, so we don't accept payment until you get paid.

Selecting the Right Personal Injury Attorney
  • Choose an attorney who focuses on personal injury cases
  • Your attorney should feel comfortable telling you about his past cases, whether successful or unsuccessful. He should be able to explain what went wrong in unsuccessful cases rather than make excuses. He should also be able to exhibit verdicts and settlements that are impressive.
  • Your attorney should have trial experience. While most personal injury cases will be settled out of court satisfactorily, some cases need to go before a judge and jury to reach a fair verdict.
  • You should feel comfortable with your attorney, whether discussing your case, personal life, or family. And your attorney should take a particular interest in you as a person, not just a case number.
