I  have been a Trial Lawyer since 1987 and tried my first case before a Jury  representing the victim of a motorcycle accident in 1988 in San Diego Superior Court. I obtained a substantial verdict for the client.

 

Since then, I  continue to represent  injury victims in automobile/motorcycle accidents, Falls,Defective product litigation and serious and catastrophic injury victims in personal injury cases.

 

I have tried cases  before the Jury in almost all Counties in the State of California and particularly, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Kern, Fresno, Tulare and Alameda Counties.

 

My Firm is dedicated to  Client relationship first and foremost. We work hard and educate clients of the process. A better educated Client is better equipped to meet  Today's challenges in litigation . Our experience together with client education always give an edge  for our clients to meet the challenges of court experience.

 

Above all  I enjoy helping people in need and  am always available to listen.

 

On a personal note I like to travel and listen to my favorite singer Andrea Bocelli.

An honest man with integrity
I have seen his work and know the type of honest work this man does, it is important that I leave this review so others can know that if they choose to hire Pius, that he really does ALL he can to support his client and does it with integrity and grace. He is also very nice and likable.

Personal Injury case Attorney who Cares for his Clients well being
Mr. Joseph and team handled a difficult personal injury case for me for the past few years which has come to a conclusion in my favor and thanks to Mr Joseph and team was able to recover additional funds. Mr Joseph has gone out of his way to make sure I had the treatment I needed through-out and made time to listen to my concerns and communicated at every step of the case. In addition Mr. Joseph has gone over and above in helping to advise in other legal issues and I feel in the conclusion of this case I have found a friend. I trust this team implicitly they are highly professional and knowledgeable and I am happy with the result. I cannot say enough great things about this firm. I highly recommend the Law offices of Pius Joseph

I'm not 100% in my future but he was amazing, took his time and I felt he cared. I have been given the short end of the stick last nine years in my own case. He truly went above and beyond to the point where my stress levels caused me to have tears after my phone call. My situation may be better , well I know it will I wish he was local to me. When your in the darkness you appreciate any light and he did that for me, at least one night I may sleep better because he cared more then just getting off the phone...I felt human again however small

I have used Mr. Pius for several of my automobile accidents, which I was rear-ended in all but one. Mr. Pius is very competent. I trust him with my life. He will also be my children's attorney if they ever need one. Mr. Pius is a very compassionate, considerate, empathetic, and humble attorney that will fight for you not for the money but for the principle behind the matter. His staff is very polite and considerate as well. I highly recommend his services and I have referred him to my friends and family. Mr. Pius always kept me in the loop of what was going on with my case and he always returned my calls promptly.

Superb Attorney
Mr. Joseph handled two automobile accidents for me, both of them involved rear-end collisions to my vehicle. For the 1st accident, I retained a very well known law firm that made many promises, but failed to keep. It was a complex legal matter in which five vehicles were involved. I was assigned attorneys that had little experience, who lacked the experience to handle a complex case. These attorneys were difficult to get a hold of, rarely returned calls; I felt I as just like another client that would make them easy money. The case continued for nearly two years with no settlement in sight. In the meantime, I was sent to six physicians for my injuries on a lien basis, even though I had excellent medical insurance. After racking in ten of thousands of dollars in medical bills, this firm decides to drop me. No specific reason was given, but I suspect it was too difficult of a case, and time consuming. I picked up a box that contained thousands of medical and legal documents, and took it to Mr. Joseph (I found his name on the internet) on a Saturday, and I immediately knew he was like no other attorney I had met. He was cordial, compassionate, understanding, and took his time to understand my particular case. He comforted me during a very stressful time in my life. He took on a botched case and made the best of it. He even took the time to refer me to a well-known orthopedic surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Hospital who performed my spine surgery. Mr. Joseph settled all my medical liens. I know that Mr. Joseph spent countless hours on my case, and the compensation he received was minimal. Mr. Joseph did not do it for the money, he did it because I was wronged! He is the type of lawyer that will fight for justice regardless of compensation. His staff is polite, and professional! Mr. Joseph always made time in his busy schedule to meet with me, even if it was on a weekend! His professionalism and humanity was beyond what I could ever had hoped for. From time to time he calls me to see how I am doing. He did an excellent job on my second accident! Without reservation, I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Pius Joseph; he is simply the best!

Best attorney
We used to have 70 properties until the real estate market turned around in 2007/2008. Our tenants lost their jobs so they stopped paying the rent. Many of them trashed our properties, some managers began cheating us, and some managers were keeping the rent for themselves. We needed a good, sharp attorney to handle our problems. A friend recommended Atty. Pius Joseph very highly. He helped us with every case and solved our problems. My wife and I were so glad that we retained him. He cares for his clients very much. My wife and I began recommending him to everyone and they all assured us that he is an excellent attorney. Even my brother's family retained him with his major legal matterafter he got screwed up with 3 other different attorneys and Attorney Joseph fixed all the problems for my brother.

Excellent, outstanding lawyer
Atty. Pius Joseph handled most of our real estate problems. He is very knowledgeable, hard working, and patient, and we are lucky to have him as our attorney. I recommend him very highly.

Highly Professional And Competent
In the event I was ask to discribe Pius Joseph as an professional practicing attorney; I would most definitely use two words to say " highly competent." However, I believe I can take it further and say he is highly conscientious, and I would not hesitate to retain him whenever I have the need for an attorney. I retained the services of Mr. Pius Joseph more than twenty years ago; since then he has represented me on many occasions, never loosing a single one of the cases he under took from me. I am always satisfied with his resolve, as long as your case is credible one can anticipate the very best outcome. Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
