If you have suffered a serious injury through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for your economic losses as well as compensation for your pain and suffering. You will need the help of an experienced attorney to guide you through the settlement process to assure that you collect what you deserve. Sometimes, the person or people responsible for your injury will not reasonably offer to compensate your losses. In those situations, you will need to make sure your attorney is willing to take your case to trial and fight for you. I am trial tested and willing to see your case through to the end.

PI case
I hired Mr. Venneman after experiencing a terrible accident on I-405. He took my case, was very knowledgeable, efficient (took less than a year to complete) and I got much more than I anticipated. He was great at returning my calls and answering my questions. I am very glad I was referred to him and would recommend him to anyone.

Great Attorney
Having known Tom for over 10 years I can say that he is an excellent attorney. Tom and I were in law school together, we worked together for multiple years and I have sought his advice on multiple occasions. I have hired him to for a few matters and would hire him again.

Professional Lawyer who does Great Work!
Tom was the perfect lawyer for my case (speeding ticket), he was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and communicative. Most importantly though he got my case dismissed! I would highly recommend.

Unknown Attorney | Sep 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"No one fights harder for his clients than Thomas! He knows that no matter how large or small the case, it's the most important thing to you.

Thomas has a knowledge and command for the law to make sure your rights are protected and you get the top notch representation that you deserve. I have no reservations whatsoever endorsing Thomas and recommending him to represent you on your next case!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 27
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"While I have known Mr. Venneman personally for more than a decade and would be honored to attest to his character as an individual, I think it is far more important to speak from my standpoint as a criminal defense attorney dealing with him in his former capacity as a prosecuting attorney. Over the course of representing hundreds, if not thousands, of criminal defendants, I oftentimes dealt with prosecutors who were more intent on obtaining convictions than justice. Mr. Venneman, however, was always incredibly fair, honest, and professional, and it is encouraging for the entire criminal defense bar to have such an individual now fighting relentlessly for the justice of criminal defendants. Mr. Venneman has the entire package - knowledge, skill, work ethic, and compassion - that so few other criminal defense lawyers have, and this explains how he has such a great record of results for and satisfaction by his clients."
