About me

My practice consists solely of representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. I have handled thousands of cases and obtained in excess of $30,000,000 in settlements and verdicts on behalf of my clients. Our firm specializes in catastrophic injury cases resulting from car, truck or motorcycle accidents, trip/slip and fall cases, dog bites, construction accidents and truck or bus accidents. We also handle wrongful death cases and brain or spinal cord injury cases.


I grew up in the South Bay and most of my clients come from referrals from friends, acquaintances and former clients.  I have handled cases and gone to trial on behalf of my clients throughout California, including but not limited to Torrance, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Orange County, the Valley, Long Beach, Norwalk, Pomona, Burbank, San Diego, San Francisco and the beach cities.  Our clients come from all walks of life including police officers, fire fighters, doctors, teachers, construction workers, domestic workers, longshoreman and other union members.  We take each case personally and do our best to deliver the personal service that you would expect from anyone representing you in anything - especially your lawyer.
