As a personal injury lawyer who has lived in West Sacramento for many years, I am more familiar with this area than any other injury attorney in town.

With paths along the river, scattered parks throughout the city, a thriving economic hub, and a short drive to Ikea. West Sacramento is a popular and wonderful place to live in. Because of this, West Sacramento continues to grow at unprecedented rates. The changes this has brought to the community are evident across the city. New residential communities and businesses are constantly being added. The new life in West Sacramento brings high hopes but also increased traffic and more car accidents.
