About Santosh

Learn Santosh’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    Representing individuals who have been injured due to the carelessness of another.

  2. Wrongful termination
    Aggressively representing individuals who have been wrongfully terminated based on their disability, race, gender, pregnancy or age.

My firm is very different than other injury and employee side law firms. Many plaintiffs firms are constantly trying to gobble up every case possible working in volume.

My firm has chose to be the exact opposite; dedicated to a few clients at a time. Here’s why: I put my maximum effort into each case we undertake. As a former defense lawyer for over ten years representing BP and Coca-Cola, I learned many plaintiffs lawyers often sold their client’s case out because they were too busy or overwhelmed with all of their other cases to spend the time and energy on any single case.

I work differently. I do not take cases I would not take to trial before a jury. I file a lawsuit and proceed to prepare for trial. Attempting to “settle without filing a lawsuit” is actually an excuse for lawyers who are afraid of going through litigation.

While most cases settle, some go to trial. I have been engaged in ten trials since 2015 with a stellar record of success.

My personal involvement in your court hearing, deposition, settlement conference or trial is the difference between my firm and others. When you retain my firm, I give you my personal cell phone number so you can speak to me directly instead of going through a paralegal or a case manager.

If you have read this far, we might be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mr. Narayan is extremely knowledgeable about the law, hardworking, and commands the respect and attention of judges, co-counsel, and adverse counsel. He has always obtained excellent results for his clients. I would recommend Mr. Narayan for any business or personal injury litigation.

As an attorney who has been in private practice in Los Angeles for 30 years, I have had the privilege of working with Santosh Narayan, Esq. for a number of years, on many trials and litigated cases. I have consistently found Mr. Narayan to be extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, and hard-working. He has always gone the distance for his clients, in order to ensure an excellent resolution of the particular matter, in the very best interests of his clients, His knowledge of the law is unparalled. His opinions and arguments are extremely decisive and incisive. His legal and factual arguments are to the point , and are extremely persuasive to Judges in all jurisdictions. I would retain Mr. Narayan on any litigated matter, without hesitation; I would feel extremely comfortable that he would handle my matter in an excellent manner, and would achieve the best possible result for me. I am also aware that Mr. Narayan possesses an excellent reputation in the community.

Tireless efforts, can-do attitude, relentless pursuit of positive results!!
I had the privilege of working with Attorney Narayan on a collection matter and his work ethic is nothing short of amazing. The plaintiff's attorney was based in Atlanta and our conference calls were early in the morning. Attorney Narayan would be on the conference call at 4am or 5am California time to accommodate the needs of his clients. He doesn't complain, he stays even-keeled and he keeps the client informed. If you have a litigation matter, I highly recommend you contact Attorney Narayan.

Very helpful lawyer
I was referred to Mr. Narayan by a friend. I had a family legal matter that I needed some guidance with. Mr. Narayan was professional and very knowledgeable during our discussion.

Very Thorough
Mr. Narayan is an outstanding attorney. In my interactions with him he always kept me informed of status of my case. He reviewed pertinent documents with me and explained in clear language when I had questions. His preparation for the case was meticulous and he spent as much time with me as a I needed to feel comfortable. Most of his work was related to contract review where he quickly pointed out areas/language that was concerning particularly about the non-compete clause. With his advice I was able to negotiate from a better position and obtain advantageous stipulations. While there were a few times that I wished he had been able to get back to me more quickly, overall his dedication to my case was stellar and I have no reservations recommending him to others. He was well worth the money.

Great Lawyer
I had some pretty complex legal issues that needed to get worked out. Mr. Narayan was very attentive to my case, and returned all my calls. He explained things in simple terms that I could understand and I appreciated the free consultation he gave me. Everything is now resolved, but if I have any other legal problem I will be coming back. Would definitely recommend

Employment and labor Attorney | Jun 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Very few lawyers possess the vast knowledge, skill set, and strategic vision necessary to be among the top in their respective specialties. Santosh has those traits, so whenever I have a question about employment and labor law, I know turning to Santosh will quickly give me the correct answer. In addition, Santosh has the experience and the pedigree of a top attorney, and I without hesitation endorse him and consequently urge anyone looking for an expert in his specialties to contact his office."
Litigation Attorney | May 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have personally referred prospective clients to Santosh and have found his advice to them to be practical, focused and (most importantly) client-centric. In one instance, he actually counseled a prospective client to a path which was beneficial to the client, but actually diverted work away from Santosh. I walked away from that encounter extremely impressed to find a lawyer who put the client (or potential client) ahead of his own interests."
Employment and labor Attorney | Sep 05
Relationship: Other
"I needed some guidance for a client regarding California employment law - not my area of practice. Santosh came highly recommended to me and was quick to respond. In speaking with him about the case, he was thorough, compassionate but very realistic, and outlined a strong pre-litigation strategy for us. He's clearly a fierce advocate but sets client expectations clearly so you don't feel like you're being sold an impossible outcome. I would send any wrongful termination case his way, and would highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance in that area."
