FORMER INSURANCE DEFENSE LAWYER KNOWS THEIR TRICKS AND TACTICS. CALL NOW. 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE.

My practice consists solely of representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. Our firm has handled thousands of cases and have obtained close to $100,000,000 in settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. As a former attorney for many of the big insurance companies, I understand the tactics they use to shortchange the victim of an accident.  Our firm specializes in catastrophic injury cases resulting from car, bike, bus, truck or motorcycle accidents, trip/slip and fall cases, dog bites, construction accidents. We also handle wrongful death cases and major brain (TBI) or spinal cord injury cases.  We work with some of the best medical specialists across the State to make sure our clients get the best treatment for their injuries.  


---


I grew up in the South Bay area of Los Angeles and most of my clients come from referrals from friends, acquaintances, former clients and even defense attorneys against whom we have had cases.  I have handled cases and gone to trial and arbitration 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.

A fantastic attorney and person!
John is very smart and successfully have represented me in two different occasions with a couple accidents while riding my Vespas. In each occasion he provided me with strong recommendations, and would explain all the details in layman’s term. He is quite professional and fought for me like a pit-bull and created fear in the eyes of the most pompous opposing attorneys. He does care about helping others and making sure your body and mind are healthy instead of just wanting what is inside your wallet. He is a warm person and has also become a friend. He surely delivered a homerun for me and you too will be in great hands. MP Westwood, CA

REALLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS
I’ve been doing career and business counseling in Los Angeles for 37 years, so I’m super aware of the culture of any company I do business with. That’s why I am SO impressed with the warmth, real interest and level of service that John Nojima provided me. Although my case wasn’t a lucrative one for him, he treated me with caring respect and spent time and energy helping me. This level of service and generosity is reflected in his wonderful Legal Assistant, Natalie Castenada, who also went “above and way beyond.” These are great people who do a great job. I will enthusiastically recommend them to any friend or client in need of an accident attorney.

Took care of everything
In the beginning of this year I was unfortunately rear ended by a cab driver. A friend of mine had recommended to call John instead of just going through insurance myself and it was definitely the best decision I have made. Not only was he incredibly helpful but so was his staff. They were always there to answer my questions in added provided great recommendations for all my service providers and even arranged me appointments. In addition John also made sure I received a fair settlement. Fingers crossed I never have another car accident; however, if I do I will definitely be calling John Nojima again. Thank you John.

John Nojima cares about his clients
I endorse John Nojima. Through working with John, I have come to admire and respect his knowledge of the law, his compassion for his clients, and his understanding of the system by which individuals can get fair compensation for their personal injuries. John understands each of his clients, regardless of their background, and works hard to get them not only the financial compensation they need and deserve but also the medical care. As a former defense attorney, John knows how defense attorneys evaluate cases giving him the knowledge of what it takes to win cases for his clients. I would recommend John in a heartbeat!

Auto Accident
John is an excellent lawyer. I was injured when a driver made a left turn in front of me. I not only got a fair settlement but great medical care. In addition, I was also compensated for lost wages.

Finally an attorney that shows genuine concern.
Mr. Nojima was very attentive and made sure that my well-being and my vehicle were well taken care of. He guided me through the entire tedious process of dealing with the auto insurance company and explained everything in detail so that there would be no surprises at the end. His staff is extremely helpful and quick to respond to your issues, as well as very knowledgeable. Mr. Nojima and his staff often worked extended hours in order to accomodate my schedule and meet me after closing to discuss my case. This attorney looks at his clients as people, and not dollar signs like every other lawyer. He made what could have become an extreme aggravation, a smooth process to my recovery and settlement.
