My legal employment started at a business and real estate law firm in Sacramento. I worked as a law clerk. While awaiting bar results I was hired to work as a law clerk for a personal injury law firm (where there would be a job waiting for me upon passing the bar). When I announced I was moving to the personal injury firm, the attorney I worked for, laughed. Personal injury and wrongful death cases are portrayed as insignificant cases that don't matter, but I care and it does matter to me. These seemingly insignificant events can cause a lot of hardship. Good people with good credit lose that credit. Sometimes they cut back, sometimes that vacation of a life time is lost, sometime attending that wedding becomes impossible. These are very real losses. Personal injury victims and attorneys are often portrayed as opportunist on TV and movies, but the fact is that injuries are real and the victim feels them. To add insult to injury, insurance companies mistreat injury victims and often refuse to pay or pay only a fraction. Often liability insurance companies often mislead victims into accepting settlements that later turn into liabilities. The impression that has been created by public relations campaigns, is that injury claimants receive a windfall just by asking. That is an incorrect assumption. I fight for each and every client, even the smaller case, because they are not easy. I have to fight just to get something that is withing the parameters of fair. I file lawsuits on more than half my cases, and from time to time I go to trial. I don't accept all cases, if I feel that I cannot help, I will decline to accept the case.
