About Me 

Minh T. Nguyen represents catastrophically injured clients in personal injury lawsuits. In 2002, right out of law school, he took on an orphaned case–a case that had been rejected by three different law firms and could not find a home–from start to finish. He represented a five year boy who was injured in an intersection car accident. The driver of the boy’s car was uninsured, unlicensed, on anti-depressant medication, and had made a left turn in front of oncoming traffic. Despite the foregoing, he sued the city and proved that the intersection was dangerous. He recovered over $3.5 million for the boy and his family. Since then, he has gone on to recover over $60 million in settlements and verdicts for his clients. He has been recognized by his peers as a Rising Star for his tireless energy and commitment to his clients. In 2012, he was honored as a "Super Lawyer," a distinction reserved to only 2.5% of practicing attorneys in California.


He believes in justice for every man, woman, and child regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual preference.
