I began my legal education at Harvard Law School, and then returned to my home town of Berkeley to finish at U.C. Berkeley's Boalt Hall.  After working as a litigation associate at Heller Ehrman LLP, I realized a dream by opening my own firm where I represent individuals and consumers who have suffered discrimination, or serious injuries due to accidents, medical malpractice, or defective products.  In my first jury trial, my client received an award that was 80 times greater than the insurance company's final offer.  Since then I have settled or tried more than 100 cases to successful resolution.  In 2005, I was singled out as one of the top three young trial lawyers in San Francisco.

| Hired Attorney
Aggressive, intuitive Personal Injury expert
I've worked in the law for 31 years (bankruptcy), but it was definitely both humbling and strange to be on the other side of the lawyer's desk. You know it's a bad day when you wake to someone cradling your neck and announcing that "the ambulance is on the way " (when bicyclist meets car, bicyclist loses). I interviewed a few PI lawyers (half my friends, it seems, are attorneys). Carter Zinn struck me as incredibly knowledgeable, aggressive and creative. Although the lawsuit was a bit of a roller coaster, at every point along the way I knew I made the right selection. The eventual million dollar settlement was far greater than that predicted by the other lawyers who I interviewed and assessed my case. You cannot do better than to have Carter Zinn as your advocate
