About me

Born and raised in Los Angeles, graduated from UCLA and obtained a law degree from Loyola Law School.
Founded El Dabe Law Firm, with offices in Huntington Beach, California and Los Angeles, California in 2003.  El Dabe Law Firm specializes in representing injured clients in  personal injury cases in Los Angeles and Orange County.
We assist on injuries such as wrongful death, coma, closed-head trauma, concussions and brain injuries, negligence, broken bones, broken neck, ruptured or herniated discs, ligament injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia, arm and leg injuries, dog bites, facial injuries, burns, other neck injuries, auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, trip and falls, construction site accidents, and pedestrian injuries.

I am recognized by courts, insurance companies and defense firms as an experienced and aggressive attorney who recovers money for people who suffered harm.  I am happy to personally speak with you at any time, and answer all your questions.   


Since 2003, I have obtained excellent results for thousands of happy clients, many of which I still have an ongoing relationship. 


Each case accepted by the El Dabe Law Firm is approached with the same philosophy:

1.  A focus entirely on the injured client;
2.  Aggressive representation by experienced attorneys;               
3.  Immediate steps towards proper medical treatment and insurance coverage;
