Our legal team is committed to providing successful results at fair costs and takes pride in maintaining the highest ethical standards in each legal matter we handle.

About Our Law Firm

Our attorneys have earned the nickname the "personal" personal injury lawyers because we take a personal interest in each of our clients and their families. We devise legal strategies that are best suited for our client's goals and needs. Establishing trust in relationships with our clients is essential to our law firm. We recognize that attorney-client relationships require fair dealings and communications throughout the personal injury claims process and litigation phase.

Working with Our Personal Injury Attorneys

If you have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one in an accident, you should speak with someone who understands tragedy, has passed through a bit of their own, and can help guide you to the other side. All members of our legal team have experienced severe trauma, and that is why we believe we are useful guides to help you through this difficult time.

How Our Law Office Helps Our Clients

Our legal team understands how bodily injury claims are handled by insurance companies representing at-fault parties. We also know how to overcome the defense tactics insurers use to downplay the value of personal injury cases or deny them. Our personal injury attorneys in Sacramento have the experience, skills, and resources needed to prove your case. In brief, here are the basic steps our legal office takes:

  • Investigate: Our law firm will request a copy of the incident report from local law enforcement and other entities. We will also interview eyewitnesses and work with accident reconstruction experts, if necessary. Our legal team will also retain expert witnesses to review medical records and provide testimony.
  • Negotiate: Our team of injury attorneys will present evidence and send a demand letter to the insurance carrier. This will help our attorneys recover the compensation our clients need for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and other losses.
  • Litigate: The unfortunate reality is that not every personal injury case settles out of civil court. Insurance companies are focused on protecting themselves from financial liability. That is why insurers are often reluctant to offering a fair settlement to plaintiffs even when liability and personal injury damages are clear. Under such circumstances, our Sacramento personal injury attorneys will prepare a strong case to present in civil court proving why our clients deserve fair compensation for economic and non-economic damages.
