In the begining when I asked Steve why I should hire him and his response was "I will go to trial and the opposition knows it"
Steve is extremely committed in protecting you're interests.
Steve's knowledge of personal injury law is absolutely the best I have worked with..
His many years of experience helped resolve my case for the best possible outcome. He explained everything in detail, answered all my questions and made me feel confident throughout the process.
Steve is honest, ethical, empathetic and his passion for his work and his clients is readily apparent.
I give Steve and his firm my highest recommendation should you ever need legal representation with auto accidents or personal injury.

From the first encounter with Steve Gnau we felt very comfortable and knew that we had selected the right lawyer for our case. Steve Gnau is honest, straight forward and extremely knowledgable. He accepted our case, clearly communicated the process and set our expectations for what would transpire in the coming months. Steve was always accessible and professional from beginning to end. We won our case and we would highly recommend Steve Gnau to anyone who needs a Traffic Accident Lawyer.

We were injured in an accident and had initially retained another highly recommended law firm. After a few months the insurance company denied liability and even that law firm decided not to pursue our case citing the complexities of our case.
Luckily, they referred us to the Gnau and Tamez Law Group who are recognized as very aggressive trial attorneys. Steve and his firm walked with us through the long drawn out legal process (discovery, deposition, mediation) and we finally got an excellent settlement about a month before trial (almost three years after the accident).
Steve’s firm doesn't shy away from complex cases.
Steve is a fearless and aggressive attorney who is not afraid to go to trial if that is what the case requires.
Although we moved out of the San Diego area during the process, his firm handled the logistics exceptionally and made sure the distance was not an issue in the case.
Steve took the time to fly from San Diego to be with us during our deposition in San Jose.
He is extremely committed in protecting our interests.
His knowledge of personal injury law is absolutely top notch.
His years of experience provided him with the wisdom and expertise to deal with all parties and complexities involved in our case.
He explained everything in detail, answered all our questions and made us feel comfortable throughout the long difficult process.
He is honest, ethical, empathetic and his passion for his work and his clients is readily apparent.
We give Steve and his firm our highest recommendation to all our friends and loved ones should they ever need legal representation with auto accidents or personal injury.

After a auto accident which was disputed by the other party involved as to liability while on vacation in CA, and being a resident of PA, I knew I needed a CA lawyer to look after my interests. Not knowing any lawyers in CA, I basically opened the yellow pages, dropped the book, and there was Steve. With only having less than a week before returning to PA, I was given an appointment the following day for a consultation. Almost 3 years later my case has now been settled and I would recommend Steve in a heartbeat! Each step of the process he kept me informed long distance by phone and/or email, and allowed me to make the choices necessary to continue my case after explaining all options in detail. Steve is a knowledgeable, compassionate and courteous legal advisor which I would highly recommend to any CA resident or out of state individual as myself.

I was involved in a rear end car accident and Steve Gnau and his firm were willing to go to trial against the insurance company when my other attornies would not. I was very happy with their representation and would reccomend them.

My son was involved in a slip and fall accident resulting in physical damage to his spine. he was initially represented by a "useless" attorney named Gary Senaker. This attorney decided to drop his case one week before a scheduled arbitration meeting. he felt he could not represent my son out of fear of going to trial .I immediately asked for the advice from a well known attorney in San Diego. Unfortunately he was involved in a national case and could not find the time to help my son. Fortunately , he referred us to Mr Steven Gnau. First of all , i must mention I am a physician in practice for 23 years. I was extremely impressed with Mr. Gnau's medical kowledge and his professionalism. He is a fearless attorney who had no problems going to trial if needed . Fortunately, the defense knew what they were facing so they decided to settle out of court with great compensation for my son.
