WE ARE A TRUSTED PERSONAL INJURY LAW FIRM WITH A PROVEN RECORD OF RESULTS AND HANDS-ON APPROACH.

In a legal career spanning almost 20 years, Roger Booth has handled many large, complex cases, representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and both individuals and corporations, throughout California and the United States. Since 1997, he has focused on representing people who have suffered catastrophic injuries or the loss of a loved one.

Mr. Booth graduated with honors from Pomona College in 1987. He spent a semester during his senior year of college studying at Oxford University in England. He went on to attend Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California - Berkeley, graduating in 1991. Mr. Booth then went on to work as an attorney at Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro (then the largest law firm in California) in San Francisco, where he handled a variety of large, complex business litigation and insurance bad faith matters. During his time at the Pillsbury firm, Mr. Booth took a leave of absence to work at the San Francisco Public Defender’s office, where he gained valuable jury trial experience representing criminal defendants.

In 1997, Mr. Booth joined his father, Larry Booth, at Booth & Koskoff and quickly made his mark as a plaintiff’s attorney. In 1998, in just his second personal injury trial, he (along with Richard Koskoff) obtained a $1.6 million verdict in Orange County, setting a record for a hand injury case in that courthouse. That result generated a great deal of attention in the legal press. [Article PDF] Since then, Mr. Booth has handled more than 20 cases that have resulted in verdicts or settlement in excess of $1,000,000. Beggining in 2009, he has been named a “Super Lawyer”  every year, an honor limited to the top 5% of attorneys in Southern California.

Confident I found the right attorney
I am happy to give Roger an excellent review not only because of the results delivered, but also for the genuine concern and personal involvement throughout the situation. It was a refreshing change from people I had worked with previously.

Personal injury
We hired Mr. Booth for a personal injury case involving my husband. Although it was a lengthy process, Mr. Booth guided us and explained every step along the way. Despite the uncertainty and stress surrounding our case, he handled everything with professionalism and demonstrated the necessary expertise to secure a fair settlement. Mr. Booth showed understanding and empathy towards my husband and our family, considering the sensitive nature of the situation which is something we are extremely grateful for. If anyone is in need of a personal injury lawyer who will go above and beyond to provide assistance, I definitely recommend Mr. Booth.

Highly Recommend Robert & his Team
Robert supported my cases over several years until a successful completion. Robert is extremely knowledgeable and always available for questions. His expertise was essential to making me feel comfortable and confident throughout the process. His staff is extremely efficient and competent. Could not recommend his services more.

An exceptional attorney
Roger Booth and his cohorts were truly amazing. They handled my case with professionalism from start to finish and I appreciated their excellence in communication and transparency. The settlement amount was far more than I ever expected. I couldn't be any more pleased with the process and the outcome.

A very Satisfactory experience.
This was our first experience as a client of a lawyer, and it turned out to be low stress, almost pleasant with a successful outcome. We were pedestrians hit by a car, and needed help to deal with the insurance company & Medicare too. Roger was recommended to us, even though we live in Nevada. We were able to do the claim over the phone & through email, and Roger brought everything to a successful conclusion. We can recommend Roger & his office for auto accident claims.

5 Stars!!!
I have been an attorney in the South Bay for thirty-nine years. For really large or difficult personal injury cases, I refer them to Roger to handle. His vast experience and dedication to the interests of his clients is unmatched . . . and he gets great results! I am always happy to be able to refer injured people to Roger, as I know they will be in the best of hands!

Excellent
Roger Booth helped me during a very hard time in my life. He represented me in two cases against Cal Trans and Gosselin Tires. He was very helpful and transparent in the process, and made me feel comfortable. The cases lasted over the span of two years, but in the end he was victorious in both of the wins and continues to help me with any questions I may have. I am very appreciative of his efforts.

Highly recommended
Roger Booth was recommended to me by an excellent attorney I have consulted on various matters for the past ten years, who commented that should he or his family have a personal injury matter, Roger would, without question, be the attorney he would use. Among the reasons he gave were Roger’s superb skills, his notable track record and reputation in the California legal system, and his integrity and judgment. I was fortunate, especially in light of the pandemic, that my personal injury case was resolved in a matter of months. I can now recommend Roger’s services based on my own experience. The office staff was consistently professional, proactive, and accommodating. Roger was always accessible and took the time needed to answer any questions I had. He responded promptly and kept me regularly updated on the progress of my case. I found him to be very competent and knowledgeable in negotiating the lawsuit and settlement process. And he obtained a successful outcome in my best interests. I believe anyone needing the legal services he offers can trust that they will be in good hands.

Took the time to explore the details and give excellent advice
While I didn't end up hiring him as my attorney, I was impressed with the level of care and detail. In the end he recommended me to another attorney who specializes in my situation.

Endorse Roger
Personal injury Attorney | Jun 01
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Results speak for themselves: Roger Booth and his partner Richard Koskoff are a dynamic plaintiff's injury legal team that has won over 70 jury verdicts and settlements of a million and more. Client recommendations indicate that devoted client-care is an integral part of their success. I endorse Roger and Richard without reservation - they are powerful advocates for the injured. WM"
Personal injury Attorney | Sep 06
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly. I worked with Roger on several matters, including a wrongful death case. Roger is an incredibly skilled litigator. Roger has won many awards and accolades as a result of his achievements and record settlements and verdicts. I cannot say enough about Roger's talent as one of the premier litigators in Los Angeles, and his compassionate and warm demeanor."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 07
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I strongly endorse Roger. He has great experience from a large, multi-national law firm that trained him to the highest standards and then he worked for his father, one of the best (if not the best) personal injury attorneys in Los Angeles. But Roger is not just standing on his dad's shoulders. He has authored a well-received treatise on personal injury law and received the highest verdict (after jury trial) in Orange County on a hand injury case. He also settled on his own some very large train accident cases and automobile product liability cases, after tangling with some of the best defense attorneys in the country. Roger is quickly establishing his own reputation separate and apart from his father (and perhaps even better)."
