Arguably one of the top personal injury law firms in California, almost all of Penney and Associates lawyers are highly rated top personal injury trial lawyers; many of which previously worked for the insurance industry.  We believe this gives the lawyers at Penney and Associates a competitive edge.  Penney and Associates was founded by Frederick W.

Following his admission to the bar he briefly worked for a nationwide personal injury firm. Due to numerous requests from potential clients, he opened the law firm of Penney and Associates in 1992. Mr. Penney as a young lawyer was contracted by a national law firm to take a number of their difficult cases to trial. Within six months of passing his bar he was lead trial lawyer in a large Superior Court personal injury case.

Mr. Penney is the author of numerous personal injury articles. He became a member of the California Trial Lawyers Association in 1993.

Auto Accident
I am Dr. Gerred, retired, who practiced Integrated Healthcare in Roseville, California for 27years. Personal Injury cases was a large part of my practice, treating 100’s of injured patients over the years in my medical rehabilitation clinic. This gave me firsthand knowledge and experience how different law firms handled P.I. cases from start to finish. When I was involved in a severe car accident myself, I made the decision to use Attorney Fredrick Penney and Associates to handle my case. They kept me informed every step of the way and I was very happy with my settlement. I would not hesitate recommending this law firm to any of my friends.

Thankful for an honest and caring attorney!
I want to personally thank Mr. Frederick W. Penney for being an honest and caring individual. He gave me an honest and very informative consultation, even if that meant not hiring him (by the way, I have never met an attorny who rather give me honest advice than to get hired!) he truly cares and goes beyond your "average" attorney! I would recommend Mr. Penny to all my friends and family.

Fred Penney has done excellent work
Fred Penney and his team of lawyers has handled a number of personal injury cases for us. Many of these cases that they have handled, they defended us in personal injury cases. They were very professional, excellent lawyers and knew how to handle both sides of the cases. Fred and his partners have extensive experience as former insurance trial lawyers which make them unique as they understand both sides of the cases. I would recommend Fred Penney if you are injured in an accident.

"Yes" for Penney and Associates
I was a client of Fredrick W. Penney. I was hit on the freeway and suffered both vehicle damage and physical injury. Fred Penney and his staff coordinated all the paperwork, negotiated with insurance companies, took necessary affidavits from all parties involved and managed all aspects necessary to settle my case. Not only did Fred Penney get medical / therapy expenses paid for, but was able to secure a nice settlement for pain and suffering. I highly recommend Penney and Associates as your legal representation! As a matter of fact, my daughter is presently a client of Fred Penney's for an accident / injury she was recently involved in.

Auto accident
Mr. Penney has handled two out accidents for me. The first was back in 1999, and the most recent in 2013. In both cases, Mr. Penney and his firm did an excellent job handling all of the paperwork, Doctors, Insurance companies etc. That allowed me to focus on recovering from my injuries. I would recommend Fred and his firm to anyone needing an injury attorney.

Helped my dad
My dad was involved in a head on collision. The insurance companies were belittling him and attempting to get him to settle for way low amounts. Fred helped my dad obtain a settlement in far excess of what the insurance companies were offering. Fred knew his way around the insurance companies and their different tactics. He is very well educated in his field and is in my opinion one the best attorneys in California.

Rip Off
I have used this attorney three times many years ago. I was really young and knew nothing about attorneys or accident injury attorneys. I did everything he asked and received about $1,000 in each case. Everytime he blamed the doctors for billing such high amounts and sucking up the settlement. I am ashamed to say that after the third case he represented me on I realized I was being taken as a fool. I went back to those doctors that I had seen in the past(which refuse to work with him anymore) and they said that he tells all of his clients the doctor bills sucked up the settlement. Don't fall victim to this ambulance chaser's scam.
