Your Local Attorneys

For Personal Injury and Social Security Disability (SSD) Claims

When you are injured in an accident or suffer a disabling condition due to the negligence of others, time is of the essence: You don’t want to waste precious time looking for a Sacramento lawyer, or other California or Nevada attorney. If you would like a free consultation and case evaluation about a legal problem, contact us today and make arrangements to discuss your situation with one of our local attorneys. We have offices in Sacramento, Oakland, Stockton and Las Vegas, and we regularly represent injury victims and their families throughout California and Nevada. This is vital to know as it’s important to begin work on your case as soon as possible, with experienced personal injury lawyers who are easy to reach wherever you live throughout California, Nevada and the West.

In insurance litigation, we begin by representing our clients in making initial demands and negotiating with insurers. When appropriate, we also use mediation and arbitration when representing clients in disability cases; and, when a case cannot be resolved reasonably through those alternative methods, we file suit and carry the case to trial. On the Social Security Disability (SSD) side, we have many attorneys who help clients apply for SSD benefits and provide representation at disability denial hearings before administrative law judges at the Social Security Administration. In the thirty-plus years since our founding, we have grown to become one of the preeminent Social Security Disability law firms in the western United States. Please know that we will advise you if you have a case, and if you do, we will vigorously represent you, even in the face of complex Social Security hearings that may seem impossible to win.
