Tobie Brina Waxman

About me

Serving the Los Angeles community's litigation needs since 1993.  Over 22 years experience handling Medical Malpractice cases, including both plaintiff and defense.  Along with my medical malpractice cases, I specialize in handling all aspects of Family Law litigation and Family Law appeals.  I offer personalized attention at lower, more reasonable hourly rates than most larger firms, and with an eye towards achieving cost-effective solutions for you and your family.  As a solo practitioner, I will personally handle all aspects of your case without passing duties off to paralegals or clerks.
