About Me


Stephen J. Estey, founding partner of Estey & Bomberger,
LLP,  considers personal injury law
to be his true calling and is always enthusiastic when it comes to helping his
clients obtain justice. Stephen’s practice is focused on catastrophic personal
injury and wrongful death law, and he personally has had particular success in
this arena, having recovered countless multi-million dollar verdicts and
settlements.  Stephen
has extensive legal experience in the negotiation, settlements and litigation
of various types of serious injury matters, including car accident
claims
, truck & big
rig accident claims
and bus accident claims, insurance
contract disputes
and insurance bad
faith claims
. Stephen and the Law Offices of Estey & Bomberger
are committed to providing the highest quality of legal services for clients.


 


Stephen enjoys the challenges of complex cases and the satisfaction of
helping victims recover the compensation they deserve.  An advocate of consumers’ rights,
Stephen has been involved in several published appellate opinions, Morris v. DeLaTorre (2005) 36 Cal 4th 260 and Cervantes v.
United States of America
(9th Cir. 2003) 330 F. 3d 1186, both of which have
changed laws in favor of consumers. Prior
to founding Estey & Bomberger with his partner Mike Bomberger, Stephen
worked in the insurance industry – an experience that differentiates him from many
other personal injury attorneys and gives him a unique understanding in
litigating serious injury claims.
