AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Our staff of talented and creative legal professionals possesses a tremendous amount of expertise in many areas of law including, but not limited to:
HEALTH CARE LITIGATION
California hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, other health care providers look to us for representation in medical malpractice actions, premises liability claims, elder abuse claims, employment actions, regulatory matters, and a broad range of business and commercial disputes. Additionally, the members of our health care liability group regularly conduct training seminars for our clients regarding all aspects of health care law.
Over the years, we have developed expertise in a wide variety of employment claims and issues, and have served many of our clients in employment litigation and counseling. These matters include traditional common law claims for wrongful termination, breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and defamation, as well as claims arising under state and federal statutes.
Our attorneys offer experience and expertise in commercial and business litigation in state and federal courts. We represent local, regional and national manufacturers, retailers, health care providers, and other business enterprises in commercial and business litigation, including breach of contract matters, trade secret and trade dress litigation, unfair business practices litigation, insurance coverage litigation, and class action litigation.
Beginning in 1986, with its defense of product liability lawsuits in Northern California for a consortium of national pharmaceutical manufacturers, the firm has established itself as a leader in the representation of prominent product manufacturers. We represent clients in a broad range of product liability matters involving chemicals, industrial equipment and machinery, medical devices, consumer goods and pharmaceuticals.
ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE
Financial abuse and fraud aimed at the vulnerable elderly population is a major problem in California, and we devote a major portion of our practice to stopping fraudulent practices and remedying their effects. We handle all types of matters in which elder citizens are taken advantage of, including insurance schemes, inappropriate annuity and reverse mortgage contracts, consumer contracts, and similar transactions. We prosecute claims under California statutes and common law to obtain compensation for defrauded elders.
PERSONAL INJURY AND WRONGFUL DEATH LITIGATION
We offer broad experience and proficiency in all aspects of serious personal injury and wrongful death litigation. These matters include the complete range of representation including automobile accidents, premises liability matters, product liability actions, uninsured/underinsured motorist claims, and medical cases.
