After a 14 year old was raped, she became depressed and distraught, and was driven to try and take her own life, which luckily was not successful. Our firm sued multiple parties not only for the rape, but for actions which compounded her emotional trauma and drove her to attempt suicide. Researching California law, we determined that a claim could be brought against the responsible parties for creating a mental state with an irresistible impulse to commit suicide. This resulted in our client winning a substantial six figure settlement that accounted for her physical and emotional injuries.Read more

My Mom was killed in a vehicular accident. Our family was grief stricken and devastated. When we learned the responsible party had inadequate insurance coverage that added insult to injury. The law firm guided us through this painful and difficult time with compassion, sincerity and professionalism. They worked hard and went the extra mile to obtain all the legal compensation available – even more than the policy limits. My family is thankful we had such excellent legal representation and we highly and recommend the Firm.
