About me

Todd Emanuel is the managing partner of Emanuel Law Group, a silicon valley firm that has become well known for representing plaintiffs in cases of wrongful death and catastrophic injuries.  The firm represents accident victims, survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, and police officers who suffer serious injuries both on and off duty.  We are often called upon to handle high profile cases. An attorney catastrophically injured by a Yellow Cab (2015 jury verdict over $10,000,000), a Santa Cruz girl sexually abused by a local fire chief, an autistic student abused by a special education teacher, the surviving husband of pedestrian killed in an Oakland crosswalk, an employee catastrophically injured by construction equipment, teenagers sexually assaulted by their county social worker, victims of the Alcatraz tram roof collapse, and multiple persons suffering from traumatic brain injuries and PTSD.  Our office receives most of our client referrals from attorneys, law enforcement officers, and former clients.
