Million-Dollar Judgments, National Reputation
Through the years, we have developed a strong reputation for assertive and personalized representation. We are respected for recovering multi-million-dollar judgments, arbitration awards, and settlements for a long roster of clients in both state and federal courts in California as well as federal courts nationwide.
Although we primarily litigate in California, we take cases nationally. Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating cases in other states, especially in the western United States, including Hawaii, Arizona and Nevada. Most of our consumer litigation cases, and many of our business litigation cases, are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay nothing and we recover nothing unless you win your case by way of settlement or verdict.
