Reza Torkzadeh

About me

Reza Torkzadeh's practice is dedicated to representing victims and families of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases.  He has successfully represented individuals in both state and federal courts and  is the co-author of the book Accidents Happen: A Consumer's Guide to California's Personal Injury and Wrongful Death System.  In 2015, Reza was named on the prestigious BestLawyers list. Also, in 2015 and 2014, Reza was named on the SuperLawyers list - an honor saved for only 5% of attorneys.  

In 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Reza was named on the Super Lawyers Rising Stars List. Only 2.5 percent of the lawyers in California were bestowed with that honor.  In 2012, 2013 and 2014 Reza was selected as a Top 40-Under-40 Attorney by the Prestigious National Trial Lawyers Association and Los Angeles Magazine Named him one of the Up and Coming Lawyers Under 40.  

In 2012, as a result of a $12,000,000.00 judgement, Reza was invited into the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates forum; one of the most prestigious trial lawyers organizations in the country.

  • Allen Patrick Wilkinson

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Reza is a bright young lawyer with a zeal to providing his clients with the highest service possible. He is a dedicated, hard-working, highly ethical, knowledgeable lawyer. I have been a lawyer for 30 years (currently on inactive status as I limit my work to writing and consulting, and started my career with the legendary San Francisco lawyer Melvin Belli, the "King of Torts.") Reza is bright, imaginative, not afraid to take on the hard cases, and is a joy to work with. I have no problem with referring potential clients to him, even though I know some of the top lawyers in the State of California. Reza is enthusiastic and conscientious and even though he has been in practice only several years, he has an uncanny knowledge of the tort and personal injury system, dealing with insurance companies and defense lawyers. I think big things are in store for Reza and am pleased and proud to write this endorsement of him.
