How we help
Our lawyers deliver comprehensive services in our primary practice areas. We assist you with the following important issues:
Veterans & Military Medical Malpractice: We are dedicated to the rights and health of military service members and their families. We hold the Veterans Administration and other military medical facilities accountable for medical malpractice and recover the maximum damages to which you and your loved ones are entitled.
Catastrophic & Serious Personal Injury: We advocate for individuals who have suffered serious and catastrophic injuries due to medical malpractice and general negligence. Our goal is to obtain the maximum possible damages in your claim.
Wrongful Death: Wrongful death occurs when someone is fatally injured from the negligence, recklessness, or intentional act of another person or company. When this happens, the negligent parties must be held responsible for their actions. Although no amount of money is sufficient to compensate for the loss of a loved one, we strive to bring you the compensation you deserve.
Sexual Abuse and Harassment: We advocate for and protect the reputation of sexual abuse victims in sensitive cases involving clergy, teachers, employers, physicians and others in power. We treat you with respect, compassion and dignity while aggressively pursuing your harassers.
Employment Law: We represent businesses in the Tri- Counties of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura in the full spectrum of employment law issues, including legal compliance, risk mitigation and alternative dispute resolutions, and with a focus on pre-litigation counseling. We strategize the best way to reach your goals in a cost- and time-efficient manner.
Elder Abuse: We help families who suspect their loved ones are suffering physical abuse or being exploited financially by a scam or caregiver. We work to stop the abuse suffered by your loved one and aggressively pursue injury compensation on their behalf.
Opioid Addiction & Overdose: We pursue negligent doctors and manufacturers for personal injury and wrongful death claims throughout the United States. While compensation cannot solve an addiction, or restore life, it can help you and your family get the support you need to improve life after addiction.
