After graduating from Cornell Law School, I returned to my hometown in Los Angeles and started to work for large corporate law firms defending insurance companies in bad faith lawsuits. I learned the strategies and tactics used by insurance companies to deny, delay and underpay claims. But I empathized with the people on the other side of the lawsuits up against terrifying situations, often fighting for their lives while the corporations that promised to help abandoned them in their time of need.
I left to help people - to make a difference in the lives of those who most need skilled legal support.
Because I understand how insurance companies think and operate, I can frequently stay one step ahead of their legal strategy. I’m happiest when I’m fighting for justice against big companies that think they’re untouchable. When people are at the lowest points in their lives – injured, depressed, and worried about their futures – I try to make a difference. I’m there to help alleviate their fears, loneliness and pain, and to let them know that they are no longer in this fight alone.
We work with individuals, families and children facing all sorts of terrible situations. We care about you and we listen to you. The impact of the events of your case on you and your family is a crucial part of the case that a jury will need to truly understand. We can’t possibly fight for you if we don’t listen to you and hear you.
We interview witnesses and discover the story of your case. We use experts to help understand, assess and tell your story. We integrate the facts and the emotional impact of your story. We need the jury to understand how your injuries have truly impacted your life and your future. We use our specialized training to discover and tell your story, including setting the stage, establishing the point of view, and developing the characters. We heavily utilize focus groups and mock juries.
We analyze the law relevant to your case, and apply the law in the most effective way. There can be hundreds of legal issues involved in a case. Our team of experienced litigation and research attorneys prepares for and address the key legal issues in your case. And our trial lawyer experience enables us to always focus on maximizing the impact of your case on the jury.
Cases can be resolved by settlements or verdicts. We start preparing for trial from the first day that we meet you. This maximizes the chances that we will prevail at trial, and also maximizes the chances that your case will settle before trial. We have substantial experience defending the pre-trial motions that the other side will file in their effort to kick your case out of court, and substantial experience filing the same pre-trial motions for you to win before trial. As trial lawyers, we conduct extensive discovery including obtaining relevant documents, testimony and admissions from the other side. We strategically manage the evidence, witnesses, facts, and law to best tell your story. We understand how to develop a strong case with the maximum impact on the jury.
We are experienced in working with the media and helping you navigate the challenges that the media may present. In seeking justice, our clients are often asked to share their stories with the media to stop similar tragedies from happening to other people. Some of our clients wish to share their stories with the media, and others prefer to keep their stories private. Whatever your preference, we support you.
We are trial lawyers. We love going to trial, and we try cases to win. The other side fears good trial attorneys because experienced trial attorneys can obtain large jury verdicts. This creates leverage against the other side because we can affect their profitability, credibility and reputation.
