About Laurence

Learn Laurence’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2003, over 6.3 million traffic accidents were reported in the United States. Of those accidents, 42,643 were fatal crashes. For the same year, California reported 4,215 fatalities from traffic accidents. That's almost 10% of the national average! It is probably no surprise that over one third of these fatal traffic accidents were speed-related. If negligence is involved, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help.

  2. Defective and dangerous products
    As consumers, we deserve to know whether a product is harmful or defective. It is the responsibility of manufacturer to alert consumers if there are any dangers associated with the use of the product. Through recalls, many products are removed from the shelves because of injuries that have resulted while using the product. Warning labels are also used to make consumers aware of potential harm. If you have been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to monetary damages.

  3. Motorcycle accident
    If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you may benefit from the services of a motorcycle accident lawyer, one who knows the dynamics of motorcycle crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors that may have played a part in your accident. A motorcycle accident lawyer will discover who is responsible, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover in damages if the injury was someone else's fault.

  4. Personal injury
    The Mandell Law Firm represents individuals injured in a variety of accidents, including: Airplane Accidents, Auto Accidents, Bicycle Accidents, Birth Injuries, Boating Accidents, Brain & Head Injuries, Construction Site Accidents, Dog Bites & Animal Attacks, Swimming Pool Accidents, Elder & Nursing Home Abuse, Hit & Run Accidents, Job Injuries, Medical Malpractice and Dangerous Products, Slip and Fall Accidents, Unsafe Toys, and Trucking Accidents.

  5. Slip and fall accident
    A slip and fall case can be difficult to prove because of complex laws surrounding premises liability. For liability to be sustained, you must be able to prove that negligence by the owner or manager of the property led to the accident in which you were involved. If you or someone you know is injured in a slip and fall accident while on another person's property, it is vital that you gather important evidence that may be necessary to prove negligence against the property owners or managers.

Laurence H. Mandell has championed the rights of injury victims, consumers, and small business owners throughout Southern California since 1978. As the managing partner of The Mandell Law Firm, Laurence's areas of practice encompass all aspects of personal injury matters, including dog bites, motorcycle accidents, car accidents, premises liability and product liability.

I used Larry some time ago. I recommend him to others. He is kind, knowledgeable and there for you. His staff is great, especially his "right-hand gal" Peggy. Plan on using him again! Wish I had written this along time ago.

An auto accident with personal injury
My very first lawyer. A lovely experience, couldn't ask for a better and kinder gentleman. I never had to worry for one minute as he put me at ease and everything turned out just as he said it would. He has a great office staff, always available and friendly. A great Law Firm!

Larry Mandell recommendation
Larry Mandell is a terrific lawyer. He is so ethical, experienced, and gives impeccable advice to his clients. Larry puts his clients first, and instills confidence in them with his representation. I knew he had a great reputation and now I know why. I cannot recommend a better lawyer and person of integrity than Larry. He successfully handled my case, was so very wise about every single detail. I would never use anyone else, and genuinely miss his representation!

Professional, sincere and bottom line.
I could not have asked for better representation with my ordeal and I wish he could cover EVERY legal matter. Honest, professional and "knows how it goes." I would not consider any other Man or Woman to handle my personal injury needs in the future. Agressive and prompt, my issues were handled in the most efficient manner and the timeliness was on target. I have recommended Mr. Mandell to others over the years with nothing but positive feedback. I wish you all the best in your endeavors!
