California State and Federal Trial Attorneys

 

California Trial & Employment Lawyers

From $100 million-dollar multi-state antitrust litigation to taking care of one-person companies and their needs, we have experienced a lot and learned a lot. The best thing we can do for you is to share our 33 years' experience dealing with all varieties of opponents: some nice, some dangerous, and some just plain stupid...but as our favorite comedian, Ron White likes to say...you can't fix stupid. So many of our opponents would have saved fortunes had they simply accepted the fact they made a mistake and made it right. They chose instead to go to battle with us; we can share what we learned from them. We are strategic, we conduct our research thoroughly and we are relentless. At this time, 95% of our opponents are the biggest law firms in the city, state, and country; they are good at what they do and keep making us better at what 'we' do. You don't learn much unless you fight the best. If we may share one of our favorite quotes that you will find on some of our emails:

“When you’re not practicing, remember that someone somewhere is, and when you meet that person, they will win”
-Ed Macauley

We hate losing with an absolute passion and this (and many other) quotes inspire us daily.  The other side of the coin is that our opponents read our web page, and we do not take on a case from someone we do not believe in. If we accept your case, we have to believe you and if you do, we challenge you to find someone who will fight harder and more strategically than we will. We live and breathe a quote we trademarked "If we can't win your case, it probably can't be won." Our success record speaks for itself, as our opponents track that too!  In fact, even the Department of Justice, which used our cross-complaints for the basis of an investigation, complimented us on our Complaints (ie lawsuits), stating, among other compliments "They were very well plead", and therefore of great value to them (Oct 14th, 2021). A well-plead Complaint is the concrete foundation of your case. This is the result of research, strategy, and intellectual creativity.

We are about solutions, not billable hours; very few of our cases go to trial because we negotiate resolutions that save you money and time. We call our business litigation clients at least once a week with free updates.
