About me

Geraldine Ly has been representing injured workers and plaintiffs for 20 years, obtaining numerous six- and seven-figure judgments, settlements and awards for her clients in the areas of workers' compensation, personal injury, condemnation and eminent domain. We place close attention to detail, reviewing each fact, law and procedure that could affect your case. 

Our boutique law firm's detail-oriented approach is evident in the way we handle legal matters, including:

  • Work-related injury: We can help you take action after a work-related injury, whether that is filing a workers' compensation claim or personal injury lawsuit. Our firm handles claims for blue collar and white collar workers in many different professions, including law enforcement, sales people, office workers and factory workers.

  • Accident and injury claims: Geraldine Ly has a long history of civil litigation experience and is well-respected for her aggressive representation and impressive trial skills. She does not hesitate to take personal injury and wrongful death claims to trial when a trial is necessary to achieve the best possible results.

  • Government takings of private property: When your property is at risk of condemnation or when the government wishes to take it, legal representation is critical to make sure that you are properly compensated. We can help protect your property rights.

  • Robert Thomas Bryson

    I had the distinct pleasure of working with Geraldine on a high profile inverse condemnation case which transitioned to a bad faith case against a tower of insurance companies. Throughout these matters, Geraldine exhibited the pinnacle of professionalism and legal acumen. She is an advocate in the truest sense. I wholeheartedly endorse her as a litigator and trial attorney.
