Los Angeles Trial and Personal Injury Attorney

One of the key attributes of this law firm is the fact that Patrick and I have a significant amount of trial experience. Patrick and I take on every case and meet with every client with one major thought in mind and that is to take it all the way through the finish, to trial.

Thatís the great equalizer, having 12 men and women from the community. That is our bill of rights in force. And if youíre going to represent your client to the max to hopefully bring in the best compensation you possibly can for your client. Itís probably going to happen in the courtroom.

A lot of law firms are more interested are more interested in trying to maximize a settlement value as quickly as they can without paying attention to that very very key concept. what is in the best interest of the client. we will go the distance for the client in order to maximize the recovery whether it be by settlement just before trial or if it means taking the case all the way through verdict. We are not the type of people who are going to flinch or otherwise be insecure in any respect whatsoever about completing the case and doing all that is necessary in order to maximize value for the client.

Aviation Completion Center - Customized Private Jet Business Litigation

Another segment of aviation law is completion centers. A completion center is an operation that a client hires to complete the interior of a VVIP or a very very important project. The interior of a jet. And the interior of a jet can easily be 25 million dollars. So what goes wrong with the completion in a completion center. Probably 3 words come to mind. Delay Delay Delay. The types of damages that a client would suffer in a failed completion of the interior of their jet. The first that comes to mind is well someoneís got to complete the jet properly. So they have to hire another completion center. And during that delay of hiring another completion center they no longer have another airplane to fly. So they have to acquire what we call supplemental lift that is buy a charter from another charter operator or buy time on another jet. All of those are damages. And if the completion center wound up damaging the aircraft, now you have a diminution in value of the aircraft. Itís a very challenging area of aviation law. That is completing the interior of a jet because of the millions and millions of dollars that are at issue. So itís really a segment of business aviation litigation that we specialize in.

Pharmaceutical Negligence Attorney - Defective Drug Lawyer

In the area of pharmaceutical negligence, the first place that you look at is whoís the defendant. Is it a manufacturer, is it a seller, is it a distributor, is it a hospital. Is it a pharmacy thatís compounding medications for a user. And once you identify the defendant you need to identify, what went wrong. Was it a failure to warn about possible side effects? Was it a failure to research about possible side effects.

These cases are tricky, all of them are. Especially when youíre dealing with people who have experienced a significant amount of anxiety and depression along with their physical injuries. So we have the power and the ability to refer them to excellent additional legal help as special neurologists, psychologists, physiatrists, people of this nature that these particular injured victims may not have access to

A consumer of pharmaceuticals needs to be told the truth. about What am I putting in my body? What is it going to do? And what are the dangers. Keeping that information away from the consumer is more than negligence, thatís willful disregard.
