David Makkabi is an experienced attorney who is willing to serve his clients and is able to devote his time to the preparation of a trial. In addition, he is fluent in Spanish and so is able to communicate directly with Spanish speakers. Over the course of his career, David Makkabi has effectively represented individuals in personal injury cases involving automobile accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, construction accidents, wrongful death cases and many more. David strives to provide compassion, understanding, and above all successful results for the injured.
David has helped many Californians get just compensation for their sustained injuries. In today’s climate, insurance companies want to pay less and less while charging higher premiums. Insurance companies put their own financial interests ahead of injured parties. David feels that anyone injured in an auto accident should consult an attorney prior to speaking with any insurance adjusters. All information gathered from the injured will be used against them to limit their compensation for medical expenses and other expenses they have suffered.
David is reliable, approachable and responsive while upholding the highest standards in giving each client personal attention and the quality of service they expect when hiring a law firm. Active in his professional community, David also spends his time assisting in pro bono matters and was a recipient of the State Bar of California Wiley M. Manuel Award for Pro Bono Legal Services.
